Tomorrow With You: Episode 12

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more heart-wrenching, this hour proves that we aren’t done being put through the wringer. All that double-speak about the future can only get So-joon so far when it comes to protecting his loved ones, and he’ll learn that keeping his darkest secrets close to the vest will only push his most important relationships to the brink.

 
EPISODE 12 RECAP

When So-joon says they should re-evaluate their relationship, Ma-rin is left dumbstruck. She asks him what he means by that, unable to accept his first few answers that he thinks they aren’t right for each other and things will get harder for her because of him.

He points out that she’s repeatedly mentioned how abnormal and different he is from other people. But that’s who he is, and now he’s less confident that he can give her the ordinary kind of happiness she wants.

Getting choked up, Ma-rin asks why he can’t say that they should try to meet halfway and work at their marriage. “Because I don’t think this is something achievable through effort,” So-joon replies.

“Not because you don’t feel like working at it?” Ma-rin counters. All she did today was worry about him because he disappeared before her eyes—what did she do so wrong? “Don’t worry and wait for me because I find it burdensome!” So-joon hollers in reply. Oof.

Next thing we know, Ma-rin has packed a suitcase and refuses to stay in this house for another minute. So-joon offers to stay with Ki-doong instead, but she reminds him that this is his house and turns away.

He tries to stop her from leaving, but Ma-rin tearfully repeats his words back at him: “You think you made a mistake in marrying me? I’m your mistake?” Grabbing her suitcase, she says she’ll give him plenty of time to think.

Alone with his memories of Future Ma-rin’s gloomy advice of breaking up, So-joon thinks aloud: “What am I supposed to do if you leave? What would you like me to do?”

Ma-rin heads to So-ri’s apartment where she glumly fills her friend in on her fight with So-joon. She bursts into tears, only to scream moments later when a man in his boxers emerges from the bathroom.

He collects his things and makes a quick exit while So-ri apologizes. She explains to Ma-rin that she stuffed the guy in the bathroom when the doorbell rang, thinking that it was her mother at the door. Ma-rin apologizes, and then the girls analyze the marital spat over soju.

Told that So-joon looked quite serious when he expressed having second thoughts about their marriage, So-ri guesses that he was speaking out in anger. While Ma-rin compares that look on his face to a dried fish and bites its head off, So-ri advises her friend to use this opportunity to set So-joon straight—she mustn’t cave.

Ma-rin drunkenly declares that she won’t do a thing unless So-joon comes to her begging on his knees for forgiveness.

She notices that So-joon still hasn’t called by the time she turns in, so she turns off her phone to make him worry. If that wasn’t bad enough, she finds sleeping in an unfamiliar bed uncomfortable, and her friend kicks her out of bed.

Gun-sook is having a rough night too, as she announces to her husband that she won’t move to Vietnam—if he insists on going, they can get a divorce and he can go alone. She doesn’t care about possibly reaping a fortune in a few years’ time, but Director Kim won’t stand to hear it and sends her back to bed.

Meanwhile, Doo-shik listens to his recorded conversations with Director Kim whilst glancing up at his calendar. The date November 30, 2016 is circled as “So-joon’s disappearance.”

As So-joon wakes alone in bed, Ma-rin looks exhausted as she says how So-joon didn’t call or text her. She heads into the Happiness office to do work there, and when she learns that So-joon still hasn’t made contact, she steels herself to see who will cave first.

She then turns to the mom forum for advice on her latest marital woes, but the responses are depressing: Some say that it sounds like her marriage is over, while another says she lost the fight the moment she left the house, and another invites her to get divorce counseling.

Just then, Se-young approaches her to talk about how Happiness for Humanity needs a new chairman. The board of directors needs So-joon’s vote to appoint a replacement for Se-young’s father, so Ma-rin promises to call him. She excitedly hurries to a stairwell and says So-joon should consider himself lucky that she’s calling him first.

But So-joon doesn’t pick up because he’s meeting with his lawyer at their home. He asks for half of his assets to be transferred under Ma-rin’s name before the end of the month.

So-joon arrives in the office in time to overhear Ki-doong contemplating a potential blind date. He accepts the offer on Ki-doong’s behalf, and Ki-doong protests that So-joon could’ve traveled to the future to check on his love life if he cared that much.

Ki-doong mutters that he is curious about one woman, which prompts So-joon to pose a hypothetical: If he were to find out that things didn’t look good for that woman’s future, would Ki-doong go out with her anyway? “If you were well aware that she would suffer because of you, would you still date her?”

Ki-doong asks if So-joon knows something about his love life, but So-joon’s point is that his buddy shouldn’t be the least curious about the future if he hasn’t given those questions some thought.

He gets a text from Ma-rin about appointing a new Happiness chairman, and Ma-rin jumps to check her phone when he replies, only to deflate when he writes that he’ll speak with Se-young.

Director Kim throws a tantrum upon learning that people have been talking about how he managed to finance the Jangho project. And meanwhile, Ma-rin wonders if things have cooled between her and So-joon. She holds herself partly responsible, asking So-ri what she thinks if Mary Jane Watson were to tell Spiderman to stop spinning webs.

So-ri says they’d break up right away because Spiderman is a superhero, and Ma-rin murmurs that she didn’t think of how he’d feel when she barred him from riding the subway. So-ri doesn’t understand the reference, but she’s had enough of Ma-rin’s whining—if she’s that upset, she can just go home.

So-ri goes as far to say that Ma-rin is a terrible cook, and Ma-rin cries that So-joon ate all of her cooking without complaint. Because he loves you, hon.

So-joon, meanwhile, feeds the robot vacuum pieces of paper. He takes off his wedding ring to look at it but it slips out of his fingers and drops to the floor, where the vacuum immediately eats it up. Pffft.

He scolds the vacuum for taking his ring and tries shaking it. But his attention is pulled away to take a call, unaware that Ma-rin has just arrived. He does, however, run into her on his way out, and she makes up an excuse that she’s here to pick up a package.

She’s surprised when he turns to leave so soon and notices that he isn’t wearing his wedding ring. He meets with Doo-shik outside, where he advises that So-joon throw Director Kim in prison.

Doo-shik plays the recorded conversation with Director Kim emphatically promoting the Jangho project, explaining that the director was able to finance the project behind So-joon’s back. But So-joon is more interested in how Doo-shik acquired this intel, and the next thing we know, he’s angrily walking away from him.

He screams that it was Doo-shik who lured Director Kim into a trap, believing that he should’ve at least been given a heads up. But Doo-shik retorts that Director Kim would’ve embezzled funds anyway, and he was trying to prevent something worse from happening.

His original plan was to remove Director Kim from MyReits and set him up with his own firm. But Director Kim stayed on his own path to demise by turning down the opportunities Doo-shik gave him. He couldn’t tell So-joon about any of Director Kim’s darker intentions earlier since it isn’t like So-joon could throw a man in prison before he committed any crimes.

So-joon argues that he could’ve kept a watchful eye on Director Kim, but Doo-shik argues that careful surveillance would’ve only made Director Kim more anxious and thus increase the likelihood of him doing something else. But So-joon is tired of hearing about predestined fates and won’t give Doo-shik a pat on the back for taking matters into his own hands.

What’s important is the reality they face now, the aftermath of Doo-shik’s meddling. “Are you trying to say that our present reality is entirely my fault?” Doo-shik counters. But So-joon’s point is that it was impossible to know for certain whether or not Director Kim would’ve done anything wrong if Doo-shik hadn’t gotten involved: “Is there a law saying people have to live out their predetermined fate?”

Frustrated, Doo-shik hands him his voice recorder, saying that So-joon can use this to look into any of Director Kim’s other illegal activities. He strongly believes that Director Kim needs to be put behind bars sooner than later, but So-joon vows to take care of things himself.

So-joon beelines for the office and calls Director Kim out to speak with him in private. He calls Ki-doong to order a search and seizure of Director Kim’s office due to a breach of trust.

When Director Kim plays dumb to the allegations, So-joon reminds him that he said the Jangho project would fail. He promises not to take legal action against Director Kim for pursuing the project behind his back, but he does fire the director on the spot and adds that the man will be held legally responsible for any additional embezzlement or other illegal activity.

Asked why So-joon would cover up the Jangho project, he answers, “I want to give you an opportunity. Don’t throw this opportunity away so easily, since it could be your last.”

While Ki-doong and Director Wang interrogate Secretary Hwang about what he knows on the Jangho project, Director Kim angrily mutters to himself over how he can’t kill So-joon off and decides that he’ll need to leave the country soon.

Ma-rin, meanwhile, waits alone at the house and jumps up excitedly when the doorbell rings. But it’s just a deliveryman with a package, and later, she exits the house just as So-joon arrives. She can hardly believe her ears when he tells her to stay while he stays with Ki-doong, since that means they’d still be apart.

She asks why he took off his wedding ring, and he says it’s not a big deal. Gah, you can’t just tell her that the vacuum ate it?! Ma-rin thinks it is significant, and asks how he didn’t bother to call her once—did he really think she swung by the house because of a package?

So-joon says she should’ve followed through with her emotions instead of waiting up for him and feeling angry and disappointed on her own: “How do you not give a person an inch to think?”

That compels her to ask what he’s thinking then, and So-joon notes that this is only their second day apart. “Two days felt like twenty years to me!” Ma-rin cries in frustration. She wonders how So-joon could remain so calm when she can’t.

“This is why I find you burdensome,” So-joon replies. “Do you live because of me? You should be cool, confident, and tough on your own… How did you survive before you married me?” Dude.

Ma-rin answers, pouting: “I don’t remember. I don’t remember anything about how I lived my life before I met you.” There’s so much she wants to say to him, but she can’t bring herself to look at his face, so she decides to leave the rest of this conversation for another day.

So-joon calls Doo-shik to tell him that he gave Director Kim one last chance to voluntarily change his own supposed fate because he’d like that same opportunity for himself. He points out that Doo-shik is partly responsible for this conclusion too, and he’s conflicted enough trying to think of what he needs to do about his marriage.

“She could be left all alone,” So-joon breathes, tears threatening to spill from his eyes. He’s afraid of what might happen in the future, but he’ll work hard to try and live a long life. But he can’t risk the rest of Ma-rin’s life to try and achieve that.

He can’t help but wonder if she’ll be better off if he cuts ties with her now so that she can enjoy living the few years she might have left. “What’s the best thing I can do now?” he asks tearfully.

Later, So-joon opens the package that Ma-rin brought inside earlier that evening. Inside are matching pajamas.

Over at So-ri’s apartment, Ma-rin wakes up instantly at the sound of the doorbell and opens the door to find Gun-sook in her pajamas. Both women are surprised to see each other here, and Gun-sook instructs Ma-rin to pay for her taxi. Ma-rin: “I don’t have any money.”

Needless to say, So-ri is annoyed that her apartment has turned into a shelter for both of her married friends. Gun-sook nudges Ma-rin to explain why she’s here, finding instant camaraderie upon hearing that they both fought with their husbands and left their houses.

Gun-sook cries that she thinks she married the wrong man, explaining that she’d been trying to find why her husband was acting so odd lately. Earlier tonight, she rifled through his car and found a commemorative pen from Happiness.

But then her husband woke up and screamed at her for going through his things. He chased after her, and she escaped in a taxi. Gun-sook hands over the pen to Ma-rin, who notes that there aren’t many people who are in possession of this commemorative pen, which was specifically made for the recent move-in ceremony.

Gun-sook’s first thought is that her husband is having an affair with one of the Happiness employees, but that doesn’t explain the dark and eerie vibes she’s getting from him. Ma-rin asks her if Director Kim has any friends who work in research, or if he takes the subway, but Gun-sook has no idea what she’s talking about.

So-ri says it’s just a pen, but Gun-sook doesn’t understand what it was about her having this pen that triggered such an angry reaction out of her husband.

As the Happiness employees set up for the board of directors meeting, Ki-doong asks So-joon who tipped him off about Director Kim’s shady business dealings. So-joon puts that topic aside for now and gets teased by his friends for getting nervous about this meeting.

Upon seeing Ma-rin inside, he greets her awkwardly which makes Se-young wonder if they had a marital spat. So-joon and Ma-rin give different answers, and then Se-young’s coworker arrives to greet So-joon as Ma-rin’s adoring husband from the move-in ceremony.

Both Se-young and Ki-doong nudge him and confess that So-joon is the mysterious honorary board member and philanthropist he’s been looking forward to meeting, a fact that Se-young’s coworker awkwardly laughs off in disbelief. Ma-rin points So-joon to his seat before walking off.

During the meeting, the other board members are just as surprised to discover how young So-joon is. He explains that he remained hands-off since he trusted Se-young’s father to run Happiness for Humanity until his unfortunate death. Admitting that he knows little about this industry, he trusts that the other members will make a sound decision.

Ki-doong, meanwhile, finds Se-young crying at her desk. He knows how hard this day must be for her and how hard she’s tried to keep up a tough front. She says her father would’ve been so happy knowing that So-joon showed up today.

Ki-doong bends down to her eye level and says her father would’ve been prouder of her for coming back to work at Happiness. He stiffly pats her back when she cries into his shoulder and confesses in a muffled voice: “I miss him so much.”

She’s feeling much better after the meeting, and So-joon declines going out to eat as a group so he can find Ma-rin. Ki-doong chimes in to agree, saying that he and Se-young can go on a date instead. Smooooth.

So-joon tries calling, but doesn’t get through to Ma-rin, who is up on the roof thinking of how So-joon vanished on the subway. She tries opening the door to the stairs, but it’s locked. Uh oh.

So-joon is still waiting for Ma-rin when the Happiness employees leave for the day. He offers to check the office himself while Ma-rin keeps pounding on the door, hoping that someone can hear her.

He finds her phone and bag still on the desk and checks the rest of the empty office. Up on the roof, Ma-rin worries that she’ll freeze to death, so she uses a cardboard box to keep herself warm and alert.

But then she hears So-joon calling out for her. She breathes a sigh of relief, and when he scolds her for staying outside for so long, she barks back that she’s freezing.

He tells her to hold on, and as he reaches for his phone, she asks if he’s going to break down the door. So-joon: “How can I break a steel padlock?” Lol. He’s busy calling for a locksmith while Ma-rin keeps talking to him, which makes her nervous that he might’ve left, so she starts cursing at him. Annoyed, So-joon says he’s still here. Hahaha.

He gets worried when she says she’s freezing, so he suggests that she run in place or do jumping jacks to keep herself warm. She remains silent as he demonstrates the exercises on the other side of the door, then uses this opportunity to ask him a burning question on her mind: “What did you see in the future?”

Ma-rin explains that she was so preoccupied trying to figure out why he’s acting like this that she didn’t hear the door lock behind her. She can’t bring herself to believe that he would cut himself off from her without a reason, but all of her thoughts bring her to the same conclusion: “You rode the subway and saw something bad, didn’t you?”

“Yeah, I did,” So-joon finally admits. Ma-rin claims that she isn’t at all curious as to what that dark secret is and doesn’t want to hear him wallow in his worries. When she went to bed last night, she wished that tomorrow wouldn’t come if it meant things would keep being this hard between them.

She can’t afford to worry about tomorrow when she feels so choked up now, but he seems much more at ease while worrying about the future. So-joon repeats that things can get harder for her, but Ma-rin says she isn’t curious about that.

“I met your future self,” So-joon confesses. “Your future self asked me to break up with you when I returned to the present.” Ma-rin asks if that was why he was so cold to her lately.

When the locksmith unlocks the door, So-joon hurries to remove his coat to give to Ma-rin. But she refuses, saying that he’s two-timing with another woman. He’s confused by that, so Ma-rin brings his hand up to her cheek, saying, “This is me. I’m standing here before you, and you can reach out and touch me. I’m looking into your eyes.”

She claims that the future Ma-rin who’s feeding him senseless ideas isn’t her, and he asks if she isn’t afraid of how hard things will be for her in the future. Ma-rin fires back, “I bet I’m having a hard time there because you keep acting like this.”

She’s more afraid of him right now, where all she sees is a man who’s shaken up by what he’s seen in the future. She gets right to the point—will So-joon choose that woman in the future, or the woman standing before him right now?

She doesn’t give him room to protest, arguing that she doesn’t like the idea of him emotionally cheating on her with her future self. So-joon admits that he’s conflicted; he doesn’t know what’s more important—the present or the future.

Ma-rin can’t believe that this is a question that requires more thought and calls him a two-timing dummy before storming off.

She tearfully calls her mother to fill her in, and Mom immediately goes on a tirade, swearing that she’ll rip So-joon apart for upsetting her darling girl. Mom calls So-joon on the spot and calls him over to her place to give him a piece of her mind. Yaaaass.

When So-joon arrives, the first words that come out of Mom’s mouth are, “Did you have an affair?!” Ahahaha. He’s dumbfounded and tries to explain that there was some miscommunication, but Mom squats herself on the ground in protest.

She grabs him by the lapels, screaming that she wants to poke her own eyes out and hits him over and over. Omg, this is so great. So-joon says that he only has eyes for Ma-rin, and swears on this knees that he can’t live without her.

So-joon has a sudden breakthrough at that moment and asks where Ma-rin is. She’s at home, proud of her decision to unleash her mother’s wrath on So-joon. She maintains her composure when he comes marching home complaining about how much her mother scolded him.

She has, however, realized that there’s no place like home. She resolves to stay in this house and says So-joon can leave if he wants to. He asks if that means it’s okay for him to suffer outside, and she prompts him to choose again—is it the intangible future or the present? Is it her future self or her now?

“Of course, it’s you,” So-joon answers pouting. And then he swoops in to kiss her.

 
COMMENTS

FINALLY. It feels like we’ve been waiting for So-joon to have his aha moment for much of this series now, one where he would finally sit still for one second and realize what a precious and fragile relationship he has now instead of worrying himself to death (hur) about the future.

It’s another significant step in the right direction for him, since it’s in these moments of honesty that he breaks through the fear of what may come. Even if I don’t always agree with when or how he does come clean about the future, I am relieved when he actually does, because at the very least, he isn’t bearing this burden alone. No matter how messy his arguments with Ma-rin get, I love that she keeps pressing him to say what he means, even when whatever words come out of his mouth end up hurting her. It was hard to watch Ma-rin realize that his words of rethinking their entire relationship was his attempt to save her from any future pain, since those same words didn’t save either of them from the emotional turmoil they felt in the past few days.

So when Ma-rin confronted So-joon on that rooftop, I loved how blunt she was about why her future self may have appeared so miserable to him. Up to that point, So-joon hadn’t realized the possibility of the cumulative effect of every instance he has let Ma-rin down. This isn’t to say that all of the broken parts of their marriage are So-joon’s fault, of course—I could understand how conflicted he felt about whether the present or the future was more important. For a time traveler who keeps so much knowledge in his brain, it makes sense that it would be hard for him to keep anything straight… and yet, Ma-rin is there to show him how simple the most important questions in life really are.

And as much as I’m happy that he and Ma-rin are happy again, it’s unnerving to think that this joyful moment is fleeting. It’s been a long time since a series has left me feeling so nervous with each passing episode, but then again, we’re dealing with a time traveling hero who’s got a ticking clock on when he’s due to vanish without a trace.

I love how Marin saw past Sojoon's hurtful words and realize that the only reason why he would do that is because he saw a bad future for them. It shows how much she cares and understand him. She can read between the lines.

But omg I'm so scared for Gunsook's life. It's great that she has friends to help her at times like this. She also brought a crucial evidence to Seyoung's Dad's murder. I bet that it will all click for Marin when she sees Director Kim's car again.

Sigh. Another long week of waiting... Thanks for the recaps, gummi! I live for this these days.

Cosign this. I absolutely loved that Marin figured it out. When it comes to noble idiocy, it always takes 2 to tango (the idiot thinking he or she is noble and the other idiot who doesn't understand that there's another reason why the person you love more than anything suddenly is being weird to you).

I also LOVED Marin's way of looking at the future like it's another entity altogether. I think one of the reasons why I felt so yucky and untrusting towards Sojoon (even if he was all swoony) in the beginning was because it really DID feel like he was cheating on her. I could just never articulate it. I called it a lot of things- he's not opening up to her, he's lying, he's too focused on the future. But at the core- he was properly doing "yangdari." And she just nailed it when she gave him the ultimatum. Is it me or is it her? That her - future Marin, isn't the Marin he loves and cherishes now.

And thank goodness for ajumma tantrums. Never thought I'd say that b/c I usually hate ajumma tantrums. But this one knocked some sense into our Sojoon!

Yesss. I've been loving MaRin as a character, and am loving her more and more recently. She's not perfect, she always second-guesses her choices, but sticks through with it till the end. She's open to the possibility that she may be wrong. I love that she tries to understand SJ, his time-travelling ways, even trying to go to the future herself. And she's cute to boot. I don't know if people find her aegyo overwhelming, but I always find SMA naturally adorable.

I initially thought the locked door scene was insignificant, but then it lead to one of the best 'yaaas' moment in this episode. MaRin must have realize such a concerned SoJoon would not be out of love with her already, and brilliantly connected all the dots. Cheating? That's a brilliant way of putting it really, don't tolerate cheating ever !

Ma Rin is scary good at predicting the future, even if she doesn't know it. Yesterday, she told So Joon, “I worry that you’ll disappear and won’t be able to come back," then gave herself a pep talk in front of the subway station before trying to go to the future, "If you die, we'll die together." And today, she correctly figured out why her husband wanted to break up with her. I love smart heroines.

You're scaring me. I just realized how all of that is potentially ominous and I didn't even realize while watching. I just assumed that it's natural to be afraid that people we love will some day die. Oh dang. Is this a set-up, drama-nims?

0

OMG yes! I'm so glad someone else feels this way.
I absolutely loved that MR came to the realization that SJ saw something terrible in the future. To be honest, I never thought SJ would admit it all by himself. And I love how MR's character has always been consistent in pushing SJ to open up, she actually takes initiative to make their relationship work.

Also, one thing that always surprises me, but that I love about her is how she takes things in stride. Even when their arguments are serious and SJ has his emotional outbursts, she always considers things from his perspective and thinks the situation can be salvaged. I think the kind of person she is, is largely responsible for the fact that they're still together.

PS: I'm so nervous for what's to come in the next episodes! What with that preview.
And thanks for recap gummi, I always look forward to this!

it's MaRin present decision who still yet doesn't know the whole picture and haven't experience what future marin has went through. remember they are technically the same person.

So Joon will eventually experiencing something what future So joon experienced in episode 3 if he doesn't know what the result of his action towards Ma Rin, looking of his personality in earlier episode. they are technically the same

So Joon is really frustrating to watch. The fact that he knows the future makes their relationship asymmetrical, and it's unfair to Ma Rin, who cannot understand his motivations. I'm glad he finally had an epiphany at the end of the episode.

This show makes me feel uneasy, always. I don't think it really works as a romance, but the story is very compelling. =

SJ to MR: Are you really going to be this childish? (when he's the one who refuses to talk it out like an adult)

SJ to DS: How can you guarantee that he would've done something like this even if you didn't talk him into it? Who says you're allowed to live only by ordained fate? (When he keeps doing the same thing over and over, further messing up his future and possibly his present)

Okay, SJ, now go mull over those things and live what you preach. ?

Props to Shin Mina - girl can cry and break your heart while watching her cry!

Last stray thought: This is it, the final stretch! I'm excited and anxious about the, heh, future. Fingers and everything else crossed - I haven't been this invested in a series couple for a long time.

I think that the major reason that So Joon struggles with choosing between the future and the present and attempting to change the future is because of his parents' death. Since he blames himself for his parents' death, he is trying to prevent the same thing happening to his remaining family (Ajusshi and Ma Rin). His obsession with the future is a very natural coping mechanism for the fact that he doesn't have to ability to change the past/his parent's death. So, I can definitely understand his behavior. After losing your parents in such a traumatic manner, it honestly would be strange if he wasn't affected by it and was completely rational with his time-traveling related decisions. That being said, I love that Ma Rin challenges So Joon to get past his fear of the future and live in the present - it illustrates just how wonderfully she complements him as his wife.

Perfect. That's entirely correct. Plus it happened again with Se Young's dad-- it would even be more terrible if he learned that the chairman was in fact killed by Yong Jin, whose hurts stem from his connections with So Joon. Imagine how guilty that would make him feel.

BTW, from an all time Seo In Guk fan, I love your nickname.

And also, was that quick make up kiss a prelude to some quick make up toooooot and some spooning and cuddling and lucid husband-wife conversations at dawn? (I don't know why but I have this impression that married people always talk at dawn)

I am so proud of Ma Rin this episode...
And never did I expect myself to be this glad for having Mom as Ma Rin's mom. Those epic scoldings are so satisfying. I am glad So Joon finally see what is actually important for him.

I share the same struggle with you gumi. I am squelling when they are being cute. And happy when they are happy. But in those every joyful events I couldn't help myself but feel nervous and anxious that their happiness would only last for another few moment.

Yes, their happiness in the present will lead to their inevitable death. (That's my theory anyway, but it looks like it will not happen).

As much as I want them to be happy. Them being together will always lead to that accident. Even though Present Ma-rin is correct that she is here now and can be touched, and that So Joon should listen to her, Future Ma-rin is also correct. They should never have been together in the first place.

I hated the noble idiocy on ep 11. But, now I fully understand where So Joon is coming from.

It was Present Ma-rin's decision that So Joon will go missing. It was Present Ma-rin's decision that she will inevitably wait for So Joon everyday in that station. All of those, Sojoon prevented by breaking up with her. So those are bound to happen to Marin because he chose the here and now.

Really, imo if they do break up now, they are only following the same path as the future, only of different reasons. And that's why it's so frustrating, it's almost like they fell in the trap of the future.

So the future did change, but only it is still bad for Marin and So Joon. In this version of the future So Joon will disappear and Marin will be left to wait for him for years. I think what will happen is director Kim might attempt to kill SJ? I am still so annoyed with DS, he gives SJ the proof of director Kim's wrong doings, but he doesn't tell SJ how far director Kim has gone, once again leaving SJ open to attack. How can he think that he is protecting SJ and his daughter in this way? He is so annoying...I wish that SJ will beat director Kim, but the previews make me worry.

On the comedic front, can I just say that I really liked how Marin used her mother to try and beat some sense into SJ and snap him out of his noble idiocy. LOL at her telling her mother that SJ is cheating on her with another woman (her future self!).

That scene w/ the "commuppance" he received from Mother-In Law had be laughing out loud. It's a jewel of a 'fight" scene. He's trying to protect her from hurting herself while she's whipping around on the ground and whipping his ass at the same time. He was sooooo, physically, funny in this scene, and funny is not what his character is all about.

I normally find this Mother in Law very annoying, but, this time I was rooting for her, YOU GO GIRL, kick his stupid butt!

Ma Rin getting stuck on the roof was a logic fail. Just scream down to the people below. Regardless, I love how Ma Rin figured it out and how So Joon told her the truth. His rooftop confession today mirrored his phone call confession in Episode 7. It's like So Joon can only confess as long as it's not face-to-face. I had expected them to make up on the roof and spend a romantic night under the starlit sky, but it's even better to make up in their nice warm bed.

Thank goodness So Joon's noble idiocy was contained to one episode. Their fight felt so real. After all he'd said to her, why is he even surprised his wife wants to leave? I wish So Joon would learn, if he knows they're going to die, then just be happy and live out the rest of their lives together. One step forward, three steps back. Also, this is why you should never take off your wedding ring.

In the midst of Gun Sook's spine-chilling story, I had to laugh when Ma Rin guessed if Director Kim could be a time traveler, too. With the Happiness pen as evidence, I predict Ma Rin will be the first to suspect Director Kim in Ajusshi's death, and Director Kim will be the driver who hits and kills her on March 25, 2019. I actually thought Ma Rin was going to ask Gun Sook what kind of car her husband drives. Poor lonely So Ri getting cockblocked.

Thanks lots for the recap, gummimochi!

You're all speaking about SJ noble idiocy, but we saw that's future MR's doing, trying to save him making him breaking up with her before we-don't-know-what happen. His noble idiocy is just to do what future MR and KD told him to do.

I like how we see SJ changing step by step, falling more and more deeply for his wife. He strated to look for MR with a selfish reason, then wanted to save them both (she becoming more and more important for him) and now he's being more worried about her future than about what's going to happen to him.

That's a great point. It's interesting that future Marin is also displaying noble idiocy in the future with her hope that Sojoon will be safe (in the future) and not disappear. She's also not immune to this future-oriented way of thinking that Sojoon has.

But I think this goes further to show that future Marin certainly isn't present Marin. Both Marins may have the best intentions for Sojoon, but present Marin is interested in spending her time with Sojoon and will go as far as to say that he shouldn't take the subway. Meanwhile, future Marin is a Marin who has lost Sojoon, so she's making decisions based on that particular experience (an experience present Marin hasn't had). So her fallback to decide for present Sojoon and Marin that their best bet is to be SAFE and ALIVE, rather than TOGETHER, certainly makes sense, but to me, falls short. You would hope that future Marin wants all of that- to be safe, alive, and together, instead of going the noble idiocy route. I don't know why, but I feel like that's what present Marin would want. She has the privilege of the present that I think gives her the strength to want that. While future Marin has her baggage of whatever terrible thing happened to Sojoon.

I always find it surprising to hear from guys on dramabeans. I have this image in my head that we're mostly fan girls here.

In any case, I guess it's natural for So Joon to be consumed by fixing everything using his time travelling power. Weren't men evolved as natural protectors and providers? I mean they hunted and the classic career woman farmed. But really, I think it's desperation that's making So Joon less rational. He's just desperately trying to save Marin's life to the point of forgetting that she needs him in the present. He was as confused about it as shown in the last few minutes of the drama.

Yes, I generally agree with you.

He is so desperate, especially when Ki Doong said whether he wants the short term happiness while hurting her for the rest of her life; Or break up now and believe she will move on soon without worrying about him.

That's why in his perspective, it is not two different women even though Ma Rin insists that she is the one who can be touched, and not someone talked something nonsense(while she has yet to know what will really happen).

This episode encapsulates what I love and hate about this show. I was going out of my mind being exasperated with So Joon for the first half of this episode. Yet again, he takes action without thinking things through. I’m going to say mean things to Ma Rin to get her to break up with me, but I don’t actually want to break up with her, so I’m going to be nice and cordial which would so not make things awkward. Then the show drags me back in with the events leading up to and after the Happiness board meeting.

I remember someone posted something on the previous episode recap regarding how So Joon opens up after certain things happen, and it was interesting to see it happen here. I really loved their little talk on the roof and how it was shot and edited.

Ma Rin's mom confronting So Joon was just too awesome. I loved how he came to his realization, sober this time.

One of the things that really really annoyed me in this episode was when the vacuum ate the ring. He didn't make an effort to pick it up quick knowing what would likely happen. He was just looking on and saying nooooooo. sigh.

Doo-Shik might be the real villain of this show. He also has a serious case of pot calling kettle black.

I really want to see what happens now, good or bad. Hopefully its not too bad.

I think they did it on purpose. To illustrate that their communication is breaking down from that point in the conversation. They're talking to each other but not connecting emotionally like they were when the rescue first began. Marin felt like she was talking to a wall there. And Sojoon wasn't really talking to her as much as to himself either.

Thanks for the recap gummimochi! You're opinions in the end summed up my thoughts on the developments in this episode exactly. I liked that the last twenty minutes of this episode were so rewarding (in terms of progress) after such a difficult episode. That is something this show does really well.

I agree that this resolution too will likely be short-lived. I find whats most frustrating is that people choose to withhold information from one another for "their own good", playing the noble idiot. This includes Doo-shik withholding from So-joon and Ma-rin, So-joon withholding from Ma-rin, Ki-doong lying the first time and I suspect again this time to So-joon, and future-Ma-rin withholding from So-joon. As we've seen in the context of this drama such choices have terrible, lasting consequences. I understand that the stress and fear of not being able to protect loved ones weigh in on these decisions, and to an extent I'm glad they show it this way as it appears realistic. I especially appreciate the slow developing yet realistic approach to So-joon and Ma-rin's relationship. It resonated with me. But now that they've spent all that time there, I wonder how they'll fit the revelations of all those secrets everyone kept from one another and the audience along with the epic skirting of death (or not) we expect in 2019 into four episodes.

Lol! While I definitely don't agree with Ma-rin's methods, it was still hilarious and awesome to watch a hysterical woman knocking sense into a So-joon's indecisive mind. I think So-joon was at a point where his rumination was leading him nowhere but more rumination, something Ma-rin likely couldn't tolerate. Perhaps he would've reached the correct resolution (or something close to it) eventually. But as abused and neglected Ma-rin felt as of late, I think in her own sadistic way she wanted to give So-joon a taste of his own medicine.

Cosign this. Boong-do was the only one meddling with the earlier point in time because he was the only one who (a) could time-travel, and (b) knew he could. So-joon does not have that benefit, with Doo-shik, Ma-rin, and Ki-doong all trying to pull the strings. Also, Boong-do is obviously the smarter hero: he was methodical, knew what he wanted to change and how he was going to do it. Plus it probably has a lot to do with character. Boong-do did not flip out when he knew he was going to die a few days before Queen In-hyun's reinstatement. So-joon, meanwhile, is all over the place trying to micro-manage, unable to see the big picture.

(Interestingly, Boong-do did not die that time, although of course the rules of that talisman are in no way similar to that of subway time-travel, but I digress.)

Agree with Lord Cobol though in that the time-travel was more seamless in QIHM. But to be fair QIHM is hard to beat in that regard. Still love both fiercely anyway.

I believe the reason why we saw him crying in the future was because he messed up like he was doing in the present. Regardless of what happens I believe her father DS will help in resolving the issue. Can't wait for the next episode.

Omg! This drama! I love this drama so much that I feel bad that its not popular. But there are dramas that you want the whole world to watch and acknowledge its awesomeness and there are dramas which you feel are special, you feel happy that you discovered it but reluctant to share it with others because you feel like you found this rare gem and selfishly want to keep it to yourself. I guess I feel the latter way about this drama. Only drawback is that, since its not that well received it would be hard to come by dramas of this sort soon.

Anyway, I love ma rin. It got me in the gut when she told she didn't remember the way she lived before she got married. Because, its so true of a lot of relationships. You feel like your life revolves around them and you wonder how you managed to live before you met them. And suddenly, the unthinkable happens and you have to go back to the way you lived and while you were content the way you were back then (that is, before you met them) but now you feel clueless, miserable and in a dark place. Adjusting to your life post you end things with that person is like the hardest thing ever. I am glad that our OTP didn't go through that and I would have flipped a table if anything similar to this had happened in this drama. Thank god, ma rin is just so awesome that she figured it out and set her mother on him (LOL) to bring things into perspective for him. How refreshing is it to see a drama heroine who takes her happiness and her fate into her own hands? You go, girl!

The ending was very satisfying for me. The eureka moment So Joon has when she is beating just made me all tingly inside. I love this drama so much. The flaws are so minimal and its so beautifully written.

As an aside usually I'm upset people don't watch a drama because I believe I have excellent taste. However, in the case of this drama I'm sad because I feel people are completely missing out on such a fantastic drama. Ma Rin is my favorite heroine since Chekn Song-yi, she is so grounded, lovable, and smart. In most dramas the man is usually the more charming, intelligent, likeable, and more interesting. In this drama Ma Rin is the better character. I love that and their growth as a couple.

Up until this episode only Ma Rin had moved on from being stuck in the to simply being present. Now So joon has finally caught up. Hopefully this growth sticks and they both become present. That seems to be the theme of the show. Be present, despite what may happen in the future, love now, despite what happened in the past, and live like both the past and future can provide goodness despite what may happen or what did happen.

I want to reiterate, I love this drama. Ha

I think many viewers get frustrated by the drama because they think So Joon isn't changing. He's even compared to an addict for always reverting to old ways. But really, the guy has literally been stuck in a time loop. The only people he ever really conversed with are KiDoong and Do Shik. So the whole progress with Marin, learning to confess et al, and even just Marin alone is growth for him and in leaps and bounds too. To me that's very touching because I'd like for the man I'd marry to open up with me that much. To everyone else he's a mysterious man, but not to Marin anymore. That right there is my dream relationship. Minus the impending gloom.

So yes, it's a bit sad that people are missing it. I think the subject matter is a bit mature for too wide an audience.

Instead of death, life should be created on March 25th.
Daddy Sojoon promised to Happiness chairman before his death was that he will work hard.
Appa...omma, please work harder.

I have to leave a comment about how much I love that So Joon is everybody's son. All the parents just love him. Happiness chairman. Marin's Dad. Marin's mom. I think it validates just how much of a good man he is. Slightly irresponsible yes, and lazy, but he makes good choices.

And I think I really need to reiterate how awesome Le Je Hoon's acting is in this drama. It has so much depth. It's so subdued but it's all his own. It's a very practiced and disciplined restraint. I don't know much about him but I think I he deserves a lot of praise for his acting. Shin minah complements it very well too.

Yes! It's marveling that he's so natural with elders, polite and respectful. He even respects his employees given his position, and I love he speaks well about Director Kim behind his back. Although he definitely needs to work on his work discipline.

And I have loved LJH since Signal, and I love when people praises him and SMA because they're both love. This couple seems so real and the chemistry is palpable and oh well i just love them.

Is it wrong to say that I ship Le Je Hoon and Shin Min Ah in real life? I know SMA is with Kim Woo Bin, but LJH seems so smitten with her in all the BTS clips I've seen. Their excellent acting and palpable (this word is so fitting) chemistry is the main reason why I'm so hooked with TWY.

I'm a little sad that this show does not get much love, but I hope it won't discourage LJH, SMA or even the director and the writer to take on similar projects. I've found that I like stories like this, the ones that are more subdued but not less real. I know we watch these shows to get away from real life and maybe that's why this show is not rating well - despite being tagged as fantasy, the show is really more grounded on a couple's relationship. The time traveling is just another challenge they need to get through, like how they need to get through miscommunication, secrets, personality quirks. It's a good portrait of how people navigate relationships.

Lee Jee Hoon is so natural in this drama. It's just so refreshing watching a male lead in trendy drama put so much heart into his acting. Maybe I just watch too much trendy drama where the male lead acting is abit lackluster. And It's also helped that his character allowing him to showcase his acting range. He has never shown it in his previous drama signal. Yess.. His at times understated acting when showing deep emotion is one my fav thing about LJH acting here.

I'm loving everything in this drama but the all this future-changing is getting me confused.

1) In the first timeline where So Joon hasn't met Ma Rin, he found out that they would die on the same day.

2) This doesn't change after he meets Ma Rin - they still die in the same massive traffic accident.

3) After So Joon and Ma Rin are married, So Joon goes back into the future and finds out that he has disappeared (and so has his friend, apparently). Up until now that we find out from future-Ki doong that So Joon had disappeared one fine morning when travelling into the future (however this may not be the whole truth).

4) But apparently So Joon and Ma Rin still die together in the traffic accident - i.e. the last date So Joon is able to time travel to? If So Joon had disappeared how is he still going to die in the traffic accident? What was So Joon doing in the car on that day anyway?

So many questions that I hope this show can answer in 4 episodes and give me a happy resolution.

Honestly, I don't think the accident will happen anymore. The future has changed a lot after they got married. I believe that their main problem now is Director Kim. He's the one who will hurt Sojoon or Marin and cause Sojoon to disappear.

Sojoon can decide on which part of the future he wants to go to. He still believes that his final day is March 25 so I will assume that he never tries to go after that day. We cannot be sure now if the accident will still happen or not. I think it won't happen anymore though.

I also assumed that we are now past the accident.

But I think this confusion does reveal one of the weaknesses of the drama.

I think it could reveal the timelines in a less convoluted way (it just seems a bit inconsistent at times... some actions appear to change the course of the future, while others don't without a clear explanation- aside from the whole "some are fated to follow their path not matter what" explanation). So I'm left to just accept what happened wholesale without a good sense of why something happened. And it feels a bit unsatisfying. I totally understand that the the strength of the show is on its deep dive into the relationship between Marin and Sojoon. But I think I'd be even more invested if I could understand what happened, what didn't happen, what will or won't happen because of a particular present action-- I think it would actually help Sojoon feel less frustrating to me. Not sure exactly why those two are connected... maybe because his actions can only be relegated to his feelings about the future (which is obsessive), rather than anything really empowering.

The rules is exactly clear on what aspect which you can change and what aspect that can't be. You can change your future, except birth and death, like Doo SHik had explained. Might be there is a rare case there is someone who can prevent death, and it's happened to both our lead. That's why it will be consistent to the rules if the ending both lead died like they are supposed to be. You also hardly enable to change something out of your control, which means there is another party involved other than you, because it's involved other human emotion and desire, once again, make sense.

I agree with you though. It's abit unclear which aspect that has been occured and which circumstance that has been changed and doesn't happening. But for me it's not something that affect the narrative yet.

Okay. I've been thinking why Future Marin thinks it's her fault (getting married) that Sojoon will have something bad happen to him. I thought it would be because she'll find out about Director Kim killing Seyoung's dad. Not sure if anyone has mentioned it before but my sis said it could be because Marin found out about Dooshik's involvement in everything. He basically got Sojoon caught in all this by helping Marin and Sojoon survive the subway accident.

I was just thinking of the exact same thing on my commute home, haha. Even if SJ was always meant to die on the same day as MR by pure chance alone (whether that's Namyeong or 2019), I wonder if DS forced this outcome to occur by meddling with MR's death, while SJ is merely collateral damage because he happened to be in the right train in 2009.

I've been reading the recaps for a while, and couldn't help noticing how Sojoon is considered infuriating or dense by many, while Marin is being applauded for her tenacity in the relationship. Regarding the part where Sojoon told her it was burdensome for him, I could relate, in that he's a person who doesn't need someone to overly care for him. He's self sufficient, and he wants to take care of another more than he wants to be taken care of himself, probably due to him growing up alone without his parents and his guilt at not being able to save them. I personally find Marin overly clingy and weak emotionally, especially when she said she doesn't remember how she lived before. One still has to have their own sense of self while in a relationship, the other half shouldn't be one's everything.

Plot wise it is rather messy, I do hope it gets cleaned up in the end, but it has mostly lost my interest.

But.. but.. they are married right? Newlywed in their honeymoon phase to make it worse. So, isn't that how marriage people are? They are half of each other's soul. They just wouldn't do without each other's present. Even so joon realized it too in his eureka moment later. That no matter how bleak their future, and how worried he is about his wife in the future, it doesn't change the fact that he can't live without her as much as she can't live without him right now. They could be suffering later, but it doesn't happen yet, and might even never happen. So why would ma rin agree to all of these "You should not be worried or wait for me. Even if I disappear or something just don't fret over it. If you are about to be like that then let's just not be together" batshit? Especially if that's coming from nowhere...
He was fine a second ago but now he ask for a break for the both of them just because she waited and worried for him, and ma rin is being clingy for not wanting all of that?

And I don't think ma rin is being insufficient without so joon too. She is living her life even after two years later. She is still hanging out with her friend. She can drive car now. She even has her own exhibition. It is just that she couldn't let go of his missing husband and keep waiting for him in pain everyday until the day she die. Something so joon couldn't bear to see, then lashed out to the clueless ma rin in the present.

I'm still not convinced they won't, eventually, truly die in that traffic accident. This episode spent a lot of time accentuating her lack of driving experience and fear of driving, which usually do go hand in hand.

I'd rather they pass-over together in an accident than have him MURDERED and her not knowing what happened to him, then waiting for him to come to her from from the past via the train station. The original fated death seems more of a compassionate act then their changed fates as a result of having avoided it.

When So Joon had his epiphany, you mean? That was "Do-Re-Mi," not "My Favorite Things." The Sound of Music all the same. ?
