I’m Not a Robot: Episodes 19-20

Though the heartbreak is far from over, Min-kyu and Jia make an effort to move on with their lives. They have work to do, people to see, and new opportunities to grasp. But the bond they created has left a serious scar on their hearts, and it’s going to take a lot of distractions to get it off their minds.

 
EPISODE 19: “I will recognize you at first sight…”

We rewind a bit, just after Dr. Oh’s horrifying discovery of patient Johnny’s death. Jia and the Santa Maria team carry dark expressions as they realize what they must do. Aji-3 identifies their expressions as “sadness,” to which Jia explains that they have to lie to their friend. Aji-3 responds that lying is bad and that this friend will misunderstand, ultimately causing Jia more sadness.

“No,” Jia says with a small smile. “I’ll be happy. As long as that friend lives well.” She turns to Baek-gyun and asks that he allow her to go to work one last time. With that, she gears up in her body armor and dress, with Pi fitting her wig for the last time. Pi says that she’s sorry, and Jia notes that she’s dropping her speech now that they’re parting ways.

Min-kyu finds Jia waiting for him in the house, and despite the solemn atmosphere, they smile at each other. Min-kyu orders her into Friend Mode, and he’s happy to hear her greet him warmly.

He apologizes for being so mean to her before and suggests that they go out for some air. He sets a timer on his watch for three hours, saying they’ll have to get back before her battery runs out.

Their first stop is Min-kyu’s old elementary school, where they watch some of the kids play outside. Min-kyu thinks back to his last day in school, when his classmates had bumped into him, only to jump back with disgust at the sight of his allergic reaction.

Min-kyu says that he knows she didn’t believe him, but he truly had this allergy. And thanks to her, he continues, he was cured.

He then leads her elsewhere, and as they cross the street, he reveals that when he’d gone out yesterday, everyone looked like trees to him. It was almost like he was walking through the forest; they didn’t seem so scary anymore.

He says that that was the moment he’d decided he wouldn’t return to the way he lived in the past. Jia looks up at him and pats him on the head, calling him lovable. He smiles and gives her a good pat on the head as well, saying, “You’re more lovable.” Dawww.

It starts to snow, making Min-kyu and Jia’s faces light up. Min-kyu then takes off his jacket and wraps it around Jia so she won’t shut down from the cold. She jokingly asks if he’s just worried he’ll have to carry her if she shuts down, and he doesn’t deny it, heh.

They reach their next stop, the library, and Jia picks up a copy of The Velveteen Rabbit. She tells Min-kyu it’s a story about a toy rabbit that wishes to be real, and Min-kyu asks if that wish comes true. She says that it does, but the rabbit’s owner is unable to recognize it when they meet again.

 
Watch here

I would recognize you at first sight

 

Min-kyu deflates at that, but he reassures her (and himself) that if Jia were ever to become human, he would recognize her right away. The smiles return to their faces, though they immediately disappear when Min-kyu’s watch goes off.

They return to the mansion and face each other one last time. Min-kyu tells her that the things he showed her today are parts of the everyday life she gave back to him after 15 years. He thanks her for being so many things to him, including his friend and his cure, and apologizes again.

Jia struggles to hold back her tears as she expresses how thankful and sorry she is too. She only hopes that he can be happy. Min-kyu stares at her, and as a tear falls, he closes the distance between them and leans in to kiss her.

However, he stops when his watch goes off again. With a heavy sigh, he steps back and orders Jia to go into Operation Mode. He says that he’s going to reset her, accepting her warning that all data will be erased. Still struggling to keep her composure, Jia instructs him to press the button on her neck.

To Jia’s surprise, Min-kyu removes the necklace from his neck and fastens it around hers. He then embraces her and hits the button before inputting his final message: “I love you.” As Jia starts the countdown to the reset, Min-kyu succumbs to his tears and holds her tighter. Once she reaches “One,” she finally lets a tear fall.

Back in the lab, the real Aji-3 reports that Min-kyu’s folder has been deleted.

That night, Min-kyu and Jia cry themselves to sleep in their respective homes. Jia cries so much that she falls ill the following morning; she’s taken to the hospital due to severe dehydration, and there we see that she is still wearing Min-kyu’s necklace.

Meanwhile, Min-kyu wakes up and reflexively calls for Aji-3 before stopping himself. (Just when I thought my heart couldn’t break any more.) Everything around him just triggers memories of Jia, so he packs up all of her stuff, including the sign he’d made for her room.

He then readies for work, telling himself that he should heed Jia’s words and be happy. He forces a smile and takes off, leaving his baton and gloves behind.

He arrives to KM Financial, looking eager to start anew, when he overhears some employees badmouthing him. He makes his presence known, making everyone around him jump. As he goes on his way, every employee hilariously flees, shocked to see him unannounced.

He finds Jin-bae—who’s just as shocked—eating his lunch alone and sits down to join him. Jin-bae explains that no one eats with him since he works for Min-kyu (ouch). Min-kyu doesn’t take it to heart; instead, he asks that Jin-bae send some documents to his office.

Outside the building, the bumbling duo Brains and Curly are still fretting over how they’re going to get paid after all the work they’ve done. Brains believes they’ll have to get the money from KM Financial’s CEO.

Min-kyu and Jin-bae have been looking over all of the documents regarding Santa Maria, when Jin-bae hesitantly asks if the Aji-3 test has finished. Min-kyu avoids the question and changes the subject to Jang Doo-sam.

Just then, Min-kyu receives a message from Madame X about Chairman Hwang’s accumulation of shares. He tells Jin-bae that Chairman Hwang will be holding a board of directors meeting soon, most likely to dismiss Min-kyu. They’ll have to dismiss the chairman before that happens, and since they can’t get in contact with Jang Doo-sam, a Plan B is in order.

The two spend days looking over all the documents, with Jin-bae having to send Min-kyu home after staying past 1 a.m.

When Min-kyu gets home, he’s confused to see that all the lights are already on. He runs inside, taken aback to see the Santa Maria team in the kitchen, preparing porridge for him. (Oh, this is just the sweetest thing.) The team plops the bowl of food in front of him, but after one bite, Min-kyu whines that it doesn’t taste good. Baek-gyun tries to snatch the bowl back, but Min-kyu insists he’ll still eat it since they worked so hard.

Baek-gyun watches him eat, thinking back to his goodbye with Jia. He’d told her that the team would be leaving as well, and that’d truly worried her. “Then, he’ll be alone again,” she’d said. “You made him depend on Santa Maria. You made him trust you. Then, take responsibility. Protect him, support him, and help him endure everything. Don’t make him lonely.”

With Jia’s favor in mind, Baek-gyun suggests they play a game. Min-kyu just looks at the team, thinking they’re crazy for wanting to play at 2 a.m.

Cut to: Baek-gyun leading a game of Red Light, Green Light. Okay, I was wrong. This is the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen.

Min-kyu questions why they’re doing this so late at night, but soon, he’s enjoying himself. He’s even excited when it’s his turn to lead, but when he whirls around, he imagines Jia as Aji-3 standing there instead of the Santa Maria team.

Seeing Jia there seems to seep all of the joy from his face, which Baek-gyun can’t help but notice. Min-kyu carries on with the game, but by the end of the night, he’s clearly emotionally drained.

With the team now gone, Min-kyu readies for bed. He has trouble falling asleep when he gets an idea. He gets up, and after some contemplation, he calls his one other friend—President Jo/Jia.

Still in her hospital bed, Jia picks up the phone without looking at the ID. But as soon as she hears and recognizes Min-kyu’s voice, the emotions come flooding back and she’s in tears.

 
EPISODE 20: “You’re gone… I can never find you again”

Min-kyu is calling Jia to propose another purchase, only to stop when Jia doesn’t respond. She tries her best to steady her voice, asking if she’s just supposed to entertain him when he’s bored.

Min-kyu actually smiles and says that he’ll be a regular customer, so she should take care of him. Jia says that he should call a friend if he’s bored, to which he responds, “My best friend went somewhere far away.”

That provokes another round of tears for Jia, and she struggles to speak as she lies that she’s going somewhere far away too.

Min-kyu panics, asking who he’s supposed to talk to then, and Jia simply tells him that she isn’t a proxy buyer anymore and that he shouldn’t call again. Before he can answer, she quickly hangs up so she can sob freely. Just outside, Baek-gyun stands by her door and silently listens to her cry.

Back at the mansion, Min-kyu sighs after his failed attempt for a distraction and looks up at his heart-shaped book display. He decides to head over to Butler Sung’s part of the estate, and he asks that they switch bedrooms for tonight since he can’t fall asleep. Butler Sung sweetly tucks him in and even lights a candle, saying Min-kyu’s father would do the same when he had trouble sleeping.

The next day, Jia tells Hong-joo and Dong-hyun that she’ll be going on a working holiday in Australia to gain some experience and new ideas. They wish she wouldn’t go like this, but Jia insists that it’ll only be for a year. For the time being, she’ll hold a part-time job to pay for the plane ticket.

However, when Jia tries to leave, her scooter won’t start. And like clockwork, Baek-gyun appears with a toolbox. He says that her scooter appeared in his dream and that it asked for his god-like hands to come and fix it, lol. Jia looks at him incredulously, but lets him do his work.

Once the scooter is up and running again, Jia turns serious and tells him not to come back again. Baek-gyun merely smiles and says that he’s taking responsibility for what he’s done, just like she said. With that, they part ways.

Min-kyu is driving to work, a warning from Jin-bae weighing on his mind: As expected, Chairman Hwang is holding a meeting to suggest Min-gyu’s dismissal. A voice then tells him to lighten up a bit, and he turns to see Aji-3 sitting right next to him. But this imaginary Aji-3 only frustrates him more, so he tells her to disappear.

He stops at a light, and just off to the side is Jia selling some knitted hats at a stand. He turns to look in her direction, but a few customers block his view of her. Without another thought, he drives off.

Jia makes a sale after a couple finds one hat pretty. When the couple leaves, Jia imagines Min-kyu step up to the stand and tell her, “You’re prettier,” with a smile. She looks up at him lovingly until the figure disappears and is replaced with another customer. The customer notes how sad she looks and offers to make a huge purchase. And when Jia isn’t looking, the customer smiles at someone watching from afar: Baek-gyun. Well, aren’t you a sweetheart.

Baek-gyun returns to the lab and tells the real Aji-3 that he’ll be making her into a handsome man soon. Aji-3 thanks him and asks that he make her a “super totally amazing man.” The team looks at the robot curiously, and Baek-gyun realizes that she sounds a lot like Min-kyu. Pi confirms that all of Min-kyu’s files were deleted, making Baek-gyun wonder how Aji-3 picked up that vocabulary.

In KM Financial, Chairman Hwang informs Yoo-chul that Min-kyu is sure to be dismissed after the meeting he’s planned. And after that, he’ll make sure Yoo-chul is made chairman. However, Yoo-chul is far from pleased; he tells his father that he intended to take care of this himself.

Chairman Hwang says that Yoo-chul should just accept the help gratefully—he can even get Ri-el for him. Yoo-chul blows up, yelling at Chairman Hwang to just stop, before storming out.

But Yoo-chul hangs back to eavesdrop, just long enough to hear Chairman Hwang say that they must deal with Jang Doo-sam before he mentions the death of Chairman Park Sung-jin. More importantly, they can’t let him run into Min-kyu.

As we speak, Min-kyu is sitting in a café, waiting for Jang Doo-sam to show up. Across the room, Jang Doo-sam is watching him. He calls Min-kyu to make sure he came alone, but he panics when he spots a shady man enter the café. He hastily says that he’ll have to rethink their talk before hanging up and making a quick escape.

With Plan A out the window, Min-kyu and Jin-bae agree that going with a Plan B is their only option. Min-kyu sends a message to Madame X just as he receives a text from Ri-el, reminding him that they have an appointment.

Jia takes up a job delivering packages, content with the fact that the hard work keeps her mind off of things. She’s dropping off a package at a wedding dress shop when she turns and recognizes Min-kyu sitting in the showroom. She immediately shields her face, but her hands fall to her sides as she realizes who Min-kyu is waiting for.

Ri-el comes out of the dressing room, sporting an extravagant wedding dress. She asks Min-kyu if she likes this one better than the previous one, and he distractedly answers that they’re all pretty.

As Ri-el pouts that that’s a rather half-hearted answer, Jia urges the shop clerk to sign for the package quickly so she can leave. She hightails it out of there before Min-kyu can take notice of her.

Ri-el returns to her dressing room, looking more glum than usual. She imagines what it would be like if Yoo-chul were here, knowing he would say something like, “I like the third one. Because your neckline is pretty.” Damn, I’m feeling for everyone today.

On her way back from work, Jia’s eyes glisten with tears as she quietly tells herself that Min-kyu looks good these days. “Good for you,” she says. “It turned out well.”

Soon, the meeting Chairman Hwang organized arrives. They call Min-kyu in to discuss his dismissal, and it looks like the chairman has quite a few people on his side. As the chairman and Ri-el’s father debate over Min-kyu’s position, Min-kyu glances over to Yoo-chul, who’s avoiding his gaze completely.

Min-kyu interrupts the discussion to ask who would take his place, and Chairman Hwang answers that it would, of course, be Yoo-chul. At that, Min-kyu smirks—the way he sees it, Yoo-chul is the one who will be dismissed. He says that within Daeyang Shipbuilding, there is a team called Santa Maria.

And that’s when the Santa Maria team comes strutting into KM Financial (looking totally badass). Jin-bae lets Baek-gyun and his team in, and Min-kyu introduces them as the very team that created the world’s first android robot.

Baek-gyun leads the group’s presentation and concludes the meeting. Later, Jin-bae informs Min-kyu that a few of Chairman Hwang’s followers have switched to their side. On top of that, they’re now considering Yoo-chul’s dismissal rather than Min-kyu’s.

Min-kyu doesn’t exactly seem happy, though; he thinks back to the conclusion of the meeting, when Yoo-chul claimed full responsibility of Daeyang Shipbuilding’s sale and resigned.

Everyone had filed out of the room, leaving Min-kyu alone with Yoo-chul. Yoo-chul had sarcastically praised him for dismissing him so easily, only to grow serious when he said, “But still, until the end, I tried my best not to let go of your hand.” Min-kyu had said, “No, you already let go of my hand, Yoo-chul-ah. Fifteen years ago, on that day.” They both recall the day Yoo-chul had urged Min-kyu to sign the papers that would release him of his assets.

Yoo-chul argued that he was just a kid at the time, but Min-kyu stated that Yoo-chul knew exactly what those forms meant and pretended not to this entire time. When Yoo-chul didn’t deny it, Min-kyu told him to continue playing dumb; after all, Chairman Hwang was his opponent. Yoo-chul had fumed, offended that Min-kyu didn’t even consider him worthy enough to be his opponent too.

Still fuming with anger, Yoo-chul cries out and destroys his nameplate. Ri-el hears about Yoo-chul’s dismissal from her father and rushes to his office, stopping at the door when she sees the mess he’s caused.

Elsewhere, Jia is working at a restaurant as another part-time job when it starts to snow. She looks up at the sky and holds out her hand, while Min-kyu does the exact same thing as he drives back from work.

Before going home, he stops by the library again to read The Velveteen Rabbit. He reads: “The next spring, the boy became healthy again and played in the forest. However, one rabbit kept looking at the boy. The boy mumbled, ‘Amazing. That rabbit looks exactly like the one I lost.’”

Min-kyu sighs, the weight of the story hitting him hard, and begins to cry.

Min-kyu returns home to find a package waiting for him. He opens it up and pulls out a note from Jia, saying she’s fulfilling her promise of sending her invention, along with the two heart lamps.

Wanting to try another test, he sets the two lamps apart and places a hand on the one in front of him. When the second lamp lights up, his imaginary Aji-3 appears before it yet again.

He stares at her, his eyes full of so much love and pain, until she inevitably disappears again. Then, all he can do is clutch his own heart and cry. However, a text from Baek-gyun makes his blood run cold—Baek-gyun is changing Aji-3’s face tonight. Min-kyu leaves the mansion, still in his house slippers, and makes a run for the lab.

Baek-gyun observes the new face, not yet attached to Aji-3. He remembers Pi saying they need more time to perfect it, but he figures it’s best for Min-kyu if they attach it now. Even Aji-3 agrees that he should fix his mistakes quickly. Baek-gyun smiles and reminds her that no matter what face she has, she is still Aji-3.

He then punches in the code to activate the switch. Just as the machine moves in to detach Aji-3’s face, Min-kyu bursts through the door and shouts, “No!”

Min-kyu begs Baek-gyun to leave Aji-3 the way she is—he wants to find her again. He says that he never should’ve reset her and that he’ll do whatever it takes to revive the Aji-3 he trained. Baek-gyun looks at him with pity, saying he should just give up.

“I want to see her,” Min-kyu says, desperate. “I want to meet her again. I miss her so much.” Baek-gyun just stares at Min-kyu as he cries, seeing that there’s no changing his mind.

The next thing we know, Min-kyu has the real Aji-3 in his mansion and is eager to regain her memories. He teases her with the cat mask, ecstatic to see that she has a similar reaction to the first time.

But he soon realizes that she doesn’t have the same reaction to everything. As a final test, he asks what she would do if he tried to sell her, and the robot responds matter-of-factly that he should reset her before selling her.

Eventually, Min-kyu sees that it might be a lost cause. He wonders what he has to do to get the old Aji-3 back. Aji-3 points out that Min-kyu isn’t his old self either, so there’s no way they could ever meet again that way. “Because the inputs are different,” she concludes. He looks up at her, all hope from before lost.

Some time later, Min-kyu arrives to the train station for a business trip. He takes note of a news broadcast about a meteor shower before boarding his train. A few steps behind him, Jia takes note of the news broadcast as well.

Min-kyu finds his row of seats empty, though there’s a (very familiar) suitcase already placed in the overhead bin. He gets up from his seat to make a phone call, and when he gets back, the suitcase’s owner is in her seat.

Min-kyu’s eyes widen to see Jia sitting right across from him (finally looking like herself!!). Jia turns to see him too, and they both stare at each other in complete shock.

COMMENTS

Best to get the negatives out of the way: Min-kyu and Jia were this close to running into each other so many times that it started driving me crazy. And if there’s one thing this drama succeeds at, it’s definitely driving me crazy. I liked the twist with Dr. Oh’s other patient, Johnny, especially since everyone’s fear of Min-kyu going into shock makes total sense within this world.

But after the constant clawing and gnashing these two episodes did to these characters’ hearts, I feel that the longer they keep Jia’s lie a secret, the more the shock of the reveal is sure to be. Knowing Min-kyu, the shock—and all the feelings of anger and betrayal that come with it—would only be temporary. Eventually, the relief would kick in. He’d be so happy to realize that the one person he so wanted to be real actually is real. But like Jia, I worry that the shock really could be fatal. His condition was clearly driven by a lot of hurt and anxiety, and this one lie could push him over the edge.

On top of that, these episodes didn’t give us, or the characters, much room to breathe. Min-kyu and Jia would get distracted with work, but the moment they stopped working, the hurt and loneliness would find them again. They’re moving on with their lives, as they should, but it’s clear that the pain their separation caused them will never go away. No matter how strong Min-kyu is, he was bound to break. And that’s what made his plea to Baek-gyun at the end so devastating. He can have his work, he can have his friends, but at the end of the day, he just wants the girl he loves back.

Still, no matter how much these episodes tore at my heart, they found some way to stitch it back together. The Santa Maria team was there for Min-kyu during his difficult time, and not just because Jia asked them to. They’ve become great friends, and the team doesn’t seem to like seeing Min-kyu so upset just as much as Jia. By resetting Jia, Min-kyu believes that he’s the only one who has to deal with the heartache. If only he knew Santa Maria hurts for this couple too. If only he knew that his precious Aji-3 was dealing with the same heartache.

Despite all the doom and gloom this reset has caused, it is a reset for a reason. It’s a new beginning. The chance to start anew. The old Min-kyu and the old Aji-3 may be gone, but with this encounter on the train, the new Min-kyu and the new Jia are given a chance of their own. I just hope they’re both willing to take it.

Ok Show. Go ahead and smash my heart into tiny pieces. I did not need one anyways.
Great recap! Some thoughts:
I love that MK decided that no matter how much pain it was to be together, being apart is worse. This gives me hope that when he finds out about the lie the joy of finding what he thought was lost forever will win over his anger about the deception.
They really need to reconcile soon. Otherwise Jia will never forgive herself for putting him in danger. If she keeps taking on crazy jobs as a way to punish herself she's going to end up back in the hospital sooner or later. She seems even worse off than MK post breakup; like she completely lost her sparkle. 😔 I need the fun spunky Jia back.
Jia was right (bridal shop scene): MK is growing up into quite an amazing man; several times in the last episode I wanted to pat his head and say 잘 했어. Also sadness gives him this added gravitas that is super attractive (YSH is normally not my type but the car show scene ...).
Also Aji3 erased the memories of the fauxbot interacting with MK but not everything else that happened during that time. If MK figures out the right questions to ask she can tell him very useful stuff, eg how broken and angry Ji-ah was when she heard he could die because of the deception, or at least that lying to a friend can be a good thing if it keeps them alive. It would be extra cool if the thing that broke them apart were also what brought them back together again.
Lastly, it's amazing that among all the people that MK shows interest towards most are facets of Jia. The fact that he called Jo sajang because he was bored and missed Aji3 too much was so heartbreakingly perfect.

I'm sorry to admit it but yeah, YSH is terribly attractive and it has little to do with his looks. He reminds me of my other tormentor, Yoo Ah In. They're both stage animals. It's easy to let go and let them make you feel any emotion they want.

Also YSH doesn't have a resting bitch face it's easy to forget how intense he can be when he wants to and looking at him is like petting a tiger, lol. "Awww look how cute- OW MY HEART YOU MONSTER!"

Pwahahhaa 😂 #truth

When YSH acts cold, he can freeze up a desert. When he acts warm and happy, he can melt ice. His range is quite outstanding. There are very few actors that can make me feel real emotions. Where even if I don’t want to feel it, they force me just by sheer presence or their eyes. YSH is one of the few for me. Jo Jung-suk and Kim Soo-hyun are the others.

Also, I love that even if they are no longer together they still rely on each other for support: MK repeating Jia's words to himself in the mirror before heading for the office and Jia reminding herself of MK's 'you're more loveable' when selling stuff at the street stall. It is the memory of each other that keeps them going (well 'going' may be a stretch since they are still utterly miserable but at least semi-functional).

Thanks for the recap!
So the hardest part was definitely watching Jia take that goddamn phone call. I started bawling right there with her, suddenly remembering my first real broken heart. That's some great drama right there, making me relate on such personal level.
The second hardest part was Min-kyu trying to turn Aji3 into Jia. I related yet again - I was trying to rewatch my favorite moments of our leads to survive the heartache, but they're mostly bitter now without the happy-ever-after lurking around the corner.
Ok I lied - the actual hardest part is the constant waiting for new episodes, especially the next one (I SAY THAT EVERY WEEK UGH). I'm so excited for them to actually meet! So much new potential heartache, I can't wait!

Oh and I said that in the last recap but can we appreciate how Min-kyu already adores every side of Jia (despite all of them weirding him out on so many levels), but has yet to meet the actual hurricane-of-kindness Jia? Poor boy is in so much trouble he won't even know what hit him.

YES. And every time he praised her inventions when she was in the room (as Aji-3) in previous episodes just made me so dang happy.

I'm so excited and scared for him to find out who she really is--every part of her.

can't believe there are people who think YSH is carrying this show on his own, Chae Soo Bin is a perfect partner for him and an equally wonderful actress. My heart actually stopped when she sat up and started choking back tears. "Why don't you call a friend instead of me" - like, was that petty or masochistic or both? Man now I need an IV

that rewind on the first part got me from the start until the end!
But will MK recognize Jiah as Pres. Jo he saw Jiah twice first wearing helmet and the other one wearing disguise (probably not?) or Aji3 with different wig? lol I hope Jiah will be open to MK if he will come to her and not push him back coz after all that's what she wants from the start. Know her as Jiah.

A few disjointed thoughts, because there is so much emotion with this episode, it made my thoughts disjointed :)
1) the near miss meetings were making me annoyed, but I suppose that made the train meeting even more intense.
2) when Char Soo bin was trying to steady her voice during the phone call, but the heartbreak and tears came through, that was incredible acting.
3) Yoo chul is a fascinating character. The fact that he seems to have known what the papers were, but pushed Min-kyu to sign them... But also had sincere live for him is a very interesting twist.

Lol. Near miss meetings seems to be always present in separation tropes. Chae Soo Bin is owning her roles in this drama.
The final scene of Jia and Min Kyu meeting at the train. The look on Ji Ah's eyes was very soft more than surprised, she must have thought that it is one of her hallucinations again. *Hug*

I've always liked Chae Soo-bin and have enjoyed her performance throughout this show, but the scene where Jia answers Min-kyu's phone call floored me. I almost started crying right then and there with her. I'm tearing up just thinking about it! I'm so excited to see where CSB's acting career goes because that scene alone made me see even more potential in her than before.

This is also the first time in this show's run where I am dying for Wednesday to come. I didn't even realize it until I read this recap and watched the ending scene again. This show really has me clamoring for more now. Despite the fact that the other two currently airing shows I'm watching (Smart Prison Living and Just Between Lovers) might be "better" from a technical point of view, this is the one that has most of my heart this season. Don't get me wrong, I'm thoroughly enjoying the other two as well, but this is the one that has me most anxiously waiting for new episodes.

I love you, I'm Not a Robot! I don't care what the ratings say!

I'm just going to say it. The problem is not Korean actresses, the problem is the parts. The male leads always get these amazing complex three-dimensional parts with loads of layers and character development. The female leads are supposed to just be there to facilitate that development *even when they're the main character*.

So I often come out of a show failing to even remember who the female lead was. There are exceptions when the female lead is truly mediocre or actively bad: Yoona comes to mind and I personally think Shin Min A is really bad too (although that one's likely to be a minority opinion). But mostly it's just an exercise in bland until you come across a Park Bo Young or a Bae Doo Na who manage to get the really interesting parts.

So give a formerly-underrated Korean actress a part like this and, hey presto, she's actually really good.

I agree, and I think 2017 was a stand-out year for women in K-dramas. Along with there being a number of very good, interesting female roles, we also got so many good female friendships last year. There were shows that so realistically explored the true experience of being a woman in the modern world.

One of the best things that I’ve noticed in recent dramas is the change in how second female leads/exes have been written. In several of the shows these past few months, they are their own people with their own stories rather than just annoying plot devices that get in the way of the OTP. Ri-el is definitely one of those characters.

Here’s hoping for more good roles for women in 2018!

@mindy

Really agree on the second leads being so well written recently. I specially love Ri-el because she’s could so easily be an annoying bi*ch and yet she’s the exact opposite. I mean, she’s typical - rich, privileged, lead’s first love, daughter of a powerful man, studied abroad and comes back with expectations of marriage. This could’ve gone the bad route and yet she’s sensitive, sassy, has her own distinct personality, and most importantly, she’s honest. She doesn’t take credit for what she didn’t do. She tells people how she really feels void of filters. I really like her - probably because of how different she turned out to be.

I remember watching The Legend of the Blue Sea and having similar thoughts. In the beginning JJH was acting circles around LMH, but about midway through her character just stop having stuff to do. It was like the writers intentionally dimmed her shine so he could be look better.

Funny, witty, strong...hell-human female characters seem to just lose their identity as dramas progress. Shin Mina (who I actually like) is a good example. In My Girlfriend's a Gumiho and Araang and the Magistrate she started off cool and strong and grew progressively sadder, meeker, and weaker. They usually get the spark back in the final episode, but for long stretches so many of the women's characters are one dimensional. If you have JJH looking mediocre, there's no hope for most of the rest.

I should have put JJH on that list actually. My Love From the Stars wouldn't have been half the show it was if it wasn't for her acting. Strong female part, strong lead and strong drama. Legend of the Blue Sea was a tepid knockoff and she really deserved better.

I agree on JJH. Aside from My Love From the Star, I don't think My Sassy Girl would be as interesting if she was not the lead. Writing and story were A+ but she definitely made the character her own and extremely memorable.

CSB might not have strong screen present but she is damn good with making you cry. She always have a way to make you feel sympathy with her character, no matter she plays nice girl or mean girl. I realize she dont act a normal nice girl, she always choose a girl with strong mind.

This characters in the drama are still silly but damn they make you cry hard

We've been having a bit of a Fan Wall discussion about this as well, but it was when Yoo-chul looked sincerely upset that MK still didn't believe that he'd been trying 'not to let go of his hand' that the thought popped into my head that YC was actually Madam X. Not the original one, of course, but that for the last years he has been using that old pseudonym to feed MK information about what was really going on at the company.

And part of the reason why I thought this, is that I so want it to be true. First of all, I want MK, YC and Ri-El to be friends again, like they were so many years ago. Then, I really like Ri-El, she's coming to understand that maybe this marriage-for-business is not a good thing and clearly not where her heart lies. I want her to be with a good guy (so YC has to be a good guy :-) ). And finally, how much did YC actually understand when he was a kid? His father probably said: get MK to sign these papers and then he can come live with us. When you're a kid, having your friend come stay for sleepovers forever is easier to understand than what it means to have him sign his rights away.

I want MK, YC and Ri-El to be the next generation to run this company together, competing with friendly rivalry not nasty backstabbing shenanigans. I'll be very sad (or maybe very bitter) if this doesn't happen in some way.

I'm not super-interested in who Madame X is, I admit. But I was wondering about it this episode. I can't think of any contender except the obvious, which is YC's father.

I wasn't expecting it, but both MK and YC had good points in that argument. I was expecting it to "reveal" what YC had unwittingly done to MK all those years ago and for YC to be shocked. After all, there's no way a kid his age would understand those documents. I mean, that was kind of the point!

But of course YC would have long worked it out (his father has probably complained about it a lot since). So now his behaviour seems driven more by guilt and a kind of defensiveness. So, "we were just kids"vs "you totally knew what you did to me" gives a new level of resonance to the situation.

I too want MK, YC and the Real Girl to come together with Jia to run the company. That would be an awesome solution.

Sorry, I mean Ri El's Dad, not YC's Dad. YC's Dad isn't the obvious contender. Duh! Father of the Real Girl. The only thing I don't understand is why he'd be doing it anonymously? He could have easily gained some goodwill with MK by doing it openly. It could be there's another character we haven't met but that wouldn't be great writing and so far this is well written.

I think that while Madame X has Min Kyu's financial interests at heart, I also don't find it very useful to have her. Our little boy doesn't need riches and power, he just needs his best friend, and hopefully, in this drama, his future girlfriend/fiancee/BFF in Jia/Aji 3. To me the power struggle actually sort of gets in the way of the plot, but whatever, it is a very common trope, and the main story and acting is more than enough to keep me crying into my tissues.

I also want them do get over the past and move forward ideally as friends, but as far as I can tell YC cannot be X. X was the first to know about the Santa Maria business and they explicitly showed YC finding out about it much later. So it's either YC's dad or RE's dad. I'd say 2nd option makes more sense.

actually it's probably YC's dad's silent-assassin-type secretary. he did some dubious things early on e.g. telling YC about the robot although YC's insisted he should not know about it.

I do have a smallish complaint that YC is kind of underutilised here. the best-friends-turned-enemies-but-still-secretly-loving-each-other setup is too cool for the little of YC that we have seen so far. the show has done a much better job at setting up his romance with RE than his frenemy-ship with MK.

Agreed on the lack of bromance or development in that relationship! I’m contradicting myself a bit because I’d rather have 58 Min worth of Min-kyu/Jia and 2 Min of others. But those 2 Min could easily be a development b/w Yoo-chul and Min-kyu. Because the way I see it, there’s definitely lingering feelings and a look of “if only”. Too bad they both are too far out to really accept that. I might be bias but I think Yoo-chul need to be the one that reaches out. Because his father is the problem. He’s stuck between family and friend, but I hope in the end he doesn’t pick either - I just want him to pick the right, and I trust Ri-el will guide him to that.

@mandy

LOL on 58min of Minkyu&Jia vs 2min of others. I find myself also wishing for the same. When the two of them are on screen, whether together or just speaking on the phone, I really find myself not caring about anyone/anything else. This is actually one of the few dramas for me where the time just goes by so fast. I'm surprised when it's already the end. (Speaking of that end, how could MBC leave us with that cliffhanger and not give us any preview??? Wednesday is too long.)

So unrelated to this recap and episode, and I'm late because I'm not getting up at four to post a comment again.

But the other night I had a dream (short version) that Kim Min Gyu was a prince, and that there were all these Templar assassins dressed in green robes trying to kill him with overly long swords. And he was in my house/castle looking for his VRY IMPORTANT NECKLACE.
And then my parents and some Swedes had to set our house on fire to save him.
‘Twas wild.

Anyway, they met! Yay! Finally... is Thursday here yet... *-*

"Speaking of the necklace", Jia seems to be wearing it on the train (no surprise there). Look closely and you can see part of the chain.

I like that idea liquidsoap. A magical pendant turned Aji3 into a real girl! Yay!!!
I figure if he really believed Jia was a robot before, he can believe in another miracle!

MK seemed also to not have noticed that the real Aji3 was not wearing his mom's necklace when he was re-training her. I wonder what Jia's excuse will be when MK discovers it around her neck? Hmmm. (Wednesday, please come sooner.)

Honestly, the near misses hardly bothered me because a. I know they were gonna meet in the train as per preview and b. Those scenes weren’t stupid or random but rather brought in the weight they were carrying being so close and yet so far away from each other.

I love the extended goodbye scene even more. That was gut wrenching. Jia has it the worse. She knows they are everything to each other, and yet... with that knowledge, how painful it must be to live apart like that? To know he’s in so much pain and yet she can’t do a thing about it. That phone convo was so freakin sad. “Why don’t you call a friend?” “Am I just there to talk to you when you’re bored?” She obviously means the opposite of what she’s saying and the fact that she has to cut off even this part of their relationship, that’s got to hurt on so many levels.

Min-kyu’s desperation isn’t any less. Every moment he tried to find Jia in Aji-3, I felt my heart break just a tiny bit more. She’s so robotic- Aji-3 - he’d never have fallen in love with her if she was never replaced by Jia! Her answers are always so correct, so matter-of-fact, so... heartless almost. When she said he’d never be able to find the old Aji-3, it probably tore Min-kyu apart. That was brutal and I couldn’t even get mad at her!

Anyway I’m just excited for the next one. It’s such a long week, hurry up already Wednesday! I’m sure Jia will deny knowing him at all, but he’ll definitely figure out at least that she’s President Jo. They can start off with that. I just want a really tearful and gut-wrenching reunion full of screaming, wailing, crying then hugging and kissing 😂 Honestly I don’t have any preferred direction to where this is going. I really trust this writer despite all the flaws. It’ll work out amazing - just like it’s been since the start.

Guys, guys, guys--I was so nervous when Baekgyun started changing Aji-3's face despite Pai's warnings. Like, dude, you just got your reputation back, despite that ruse pulled on Minkyu, PLEASE stop playing fast and loose with your career! Good thing Minkyu stopped it, but we still have quite a bit to go and I'm sure the Sta. Maria team still is in some danger.

I must say, my favorite scenes this episode were Jia's sister-in-law and niece both comforting her and the Sta. Maria team playing with Minkyu. It was such a relief to see Minkyu finally able to have friends. And while the men in Jia's life are finally coming around, it's fitting that the ladies who have always supported her are the ones who comforted her.

Now I'm looking forward to Minkyu and Jia getting to know each other, with her as President Jo this time. I was impatient for the reveal to happen, but it looks like that will have to wait, and based on their frenemies relationship, I can wait. Just like the boy and the Velveteen rabbit, he may not recognize her--at least not at first. But they'll have a second chance at their relationship, and clear up the lies from before.

First of all...

Gosh! I felt the same regarding the missed encounters. I seriously got fooled at the part where Minkyu suddenly appeared in front of Jia while she was selling stuff on the sidewalk(?). I FREAKING GOT EXCITED FOR NO REASON THERE 😂. Then the frustration got to the point that i told myself that i'm not letting the show fool me into thinking they'll finally meet on the train. BUT THEN I SAW JIA'S BACKPACK ON THE OPPOSITE SEAT FROM MINKYU and then i lost it from there. Then spent about 3 hours replaying that approximately 20 seconds train scene. 😂 (Looveeeee the timing of the music there btw)

Second...

Ugh this show knows how to be masochistic to their viewers. The reset scene was painful enough but seeing them spend the day before the reset...being happy was just so heartbreaking. (i freaked out over the near kiss too 😂)

Third...

Again...Chae Soo Bin and Yoo Seung Ho are soooo good in making the viewers feel for the characters they're playing. They laugh, we laugh. They cry, we cry with them. AND I SOOO LOVE THOSE SUBTLE CHANGES IN FACIAL EXPRESSIONS THAT THEY BOTH DO! (i.e. the shock in their faces at the train scene, Minkyu's face when he lit the heart lamp and imagined Aji 3 sitting in front of him.) It's so fascinating to watch!

And i find it amazing that i feel no giddy-ness when it's the real Aji 3 with MinKyu and then feel like my heart is bursting with feels when it's Jia with Minkyu.

Fourth...
Gosh those crying scenes after the reset! I can SOOO relate as i did all of it before! (i.e lying under the covers while crying, dehydration (though not to the point of being hospitalized).

Fifth...
is it possible that curly and company might accidentally spill to minkyu that they saw Aji 3 go inside Jin Bae's house? Since they said they'll be looking for the CEO of KM? Knowing how stupid they get in scheming...i wont be surprised if they get MinKyu and YooChul mixed up. 😅

Sixth...

It's awesome that Minkyu seem to develop some form of attachment to any version of Jia~ By ep 19-20, he basically knows 3 versions of Jia already (aji 3 jia, president jo jia & heart lamp inventor jia) and now...possibly 4 (train jia).

Seventh...

Im starting to like RiEl. And I'm now sure she has feelings for YooChul though she may not have realized it yet or she's still in the denial stage. Now the writer just needs to get her to fight for it.

Regarding YooChul...i have hopes that he'll help MinKyu in the end in taking down his father...especially regarding Jang Doo Sam.

Anyways...can't wait for ep 21~

I have a question though. Shouldn't Minkyu be wondering why the necklace isn't on Aji-3 anymore at that scene where he tried to train her again?

Yes, because seeing the "reset" scene in Ep. 18 wasn't enough, directors. I cried again. And watching Ji A breakdown after that phone call from Min Kyu. If you didn't think she loved him before, there is NO denying it after that. I'm stil trying to figure out who Madame X. I don't think it's a woman. If you go back to Ep. 7, you can see that the person who dropped the note in Min Kyu's pocket is wearing a suit. It's also someone that Yoo Chul's dad didn't suspect because he walked right by him. I was thinking maybe housekeeper ajusshi. He's been there since Ep. 1. It's seems like he's pretty clueless about the business so it would be a good guise.

I was thinking, why not Dr. Oh? He said something (paraphrasing it a bit coz I can't remember the exact words spoken) in the previous episode that got me thinking when he found out about the ruse, "I told you to send a Robot, not a human being." I don't recalled him knowing about the Robot until MK told him so maybe in his anger, he blurted out the truth. Or maybe I forgot, coz crying too much in last few episodes had made my brain into mush.

What I'm wondering is how come it's never shown that Min Kyu is interested in knowing whom Madam X is. Until now he does not seem to know 'her' and does not seem to want to find out more about this helpful person. He has found out that people cannot be trusted, but I find it strange that he does not seem to have extended suspicion or at least the desire to checkout the background of, the one who taught him not to trust in the first place.

Despite all the sadness we got this week, the last scene has got me very hopeful for a beautiful reunion of two people in their real forms without any secrets and just pure, raw honesty. Also, what has surprised me is the fact that Baek-Kyun hasn't been an annoying second-lead at all, even while knowing that Mingyu and Ji-A have feelings for each other, which I really appreciate. In fact he's actually just comforting them on both sides (I may be speaking too soon though, we'll have to see next week).

My favourite scenes from this episode:
1. The Countdown to Reset: My heart felt like it was getting ripped apart as Mingyu's sobs became increasingly more pained as Ji-A counted down to 1 (I seriously can't praise YSH enough, though he's been my favourite actor for a while now)
2. The Phone Call Scene: I have always thought CSB was a great actress after watching several of her dramas but this scene was just perfectly acted. The moment she heard his voice and the realization hit her, I could feel her sadness through the screen and couldn't help but cry along with her.

The drama is slowly advancing the narative but heartbreakingky painfully. I am past crying but the chemistry gets stronger yet and the love pours out from our couple. I don't know how many episodes are left, not many I suppose, ironicly the more bitter-seet the less I want it to end. The very sparing use of flashback and the apt casting has made this so special then ther's that hauntingly beautiful plaintive balad.

I loved the meticulous mannerisms of the SM group when they were making dinner for MK...so perfect to their characters. The show has been really great at showing the reactions of the people who don't really know MK's character and those who have come to know the real person. The growing support and caring for his well-being has been one of the reasons I find this show endearing.
Now my heart has been lawn-mowed to mulch. Will have to remember to get a bigger box of tissues for this week.
Thank you for the recap.

For an interesting twist, watch Sassy Go Go, AKA Cheer Up. It was the first drama that I saw Chae Soo Bin in, and in spite of her being the villain, she still moved me. That's when I realized how good she was.

My first drama with Yoo Seung Ho was God of Study.

Watch CSB's "If We Were A Season". It's a KBS short drama, just one episode, around 1 hour. Male lead is Jang Dong Yoon, another awesome actor who cries well. KBS already uploaded a subbed version on their official Youtube channel.

My country's version of the Red Light, Green Light game is "Pukul berapa, Datuk Harimau?" I think. So far, my favourite episode is ep 19. The adorable date, the head pats, the heartbreaking reset scene (I watched that one 3-4 times), the cute porridge and game-at-2-am scene (my fav), the awkward smiles he puts on, the employees badmouthing and cowering in fear, etc. Despite the pain of separation, it was such a sweet episode.

Ri El is tugging at my heartstrings. Another reason why they SHOULD NOT get married; she, too, is in love with someone else!

I KNEW they were gonna leave that MG/Jia finally meeting for real scene at the very end of the week's episodes. I KNEW IT. You savages.

I've lost count of how many times MG cried, but strangely, it was Jia's uncontrollable sobs on the hospital bed that really made my tears flow. Dangnabbit, I'm not a sucker for romance, but this one really touched me.

Similar to mine not Mr Tiger (Harimau) but Mr Wolf ie "What is the time now, Mr Wolf?"

I thought there was much pathos and yet it was so cute that they chose a childhood game to play with Min Kyu. It was an unspoken acknowledgement that he'd lost out on so many years of childhood fun and games with friends. In a way, it may have made up for the cruel comments by the kids about his allergic reaction in school.

Even in a scene meant to be somewhat lighthearted, I got to feel so much sad!!! 😓 😂 Sheesh.

Well if they really think Minkyu is going to die from allergic shock if he knows they were lying, they should just tell him that Jia is just Jia, who used to be Baekgyun's girlfriend and he modeled AG3 after Jia. Which is true. Just don't tell him about Jia acting as AG3. Then MK and Jia can live happily ever after, right? (OK, except for that necklace thing.)

The writer's mind works in surprising ways so I don't expect the story to be predictable, but here's one scenario of what I want to happen next (I wrote this on soompi already).

MK runs into a girl that looks just like the love of his life, whom he thought lost forever. He tries to talk to her and gets rebuffed repeatedly but he can't seem to get her out of his mind. He gets a bit obsessed about it and sets out to find out everything there is to know about Jo Ji-ah. It turns out that she's not a complete stranger after all - her similarity to Aji3 is because of BG. More interestingly she is also someone he has met before: the Jo sajang who used to buy him stuff, and the inventor of the hearts with whom he briefly connected during the competition. Despite her being cold towards him there something so familiar about her, the way her eyes track him when she thinks he's not looking, small slips of the tongue. Also when MK gets in trouble she cannot help but jump to his aid. Slowly and organically MK starts to put the pieces together. When his suspicions become too much he goes to the one person who for sure cannot lie to him - robot Aji3 - and asks her about Jia. Using her memories of the behind the scenes (that did not get erased during the reset) he finds out the full truth. For a little while he pretends not to know and teases her about it. Lastly Jia and MK meet and he lets it slip that he found out (or variation: his teasing gets her to slip up). Her immediate reaction is that of reaching for the nearest epi-pen, terrified that he'll be sick. To calm her down he grabs her in his arms and kisses her senseless. The end. Epilogue: she makes rice balls for him and he figures out that she is also funny kid's aunt.

Food is important for Jia (and me both) so the rice balls had to be there somewhere. Actually, have another fanfic snippet that's relevant for this: MK offers the best date ever to celebrate their reconciliation; Jia asks for one thing only... (pause for suspense) ... the 'this is not food this is art' seafood Tteokbokki dish that he made before. :-P She really really wanted to eat that (me too).

I cried like a baby during this episode -- I won't deny it at all. I felt like the little boy, even though his rabbit is now real, lost something special. I like the supporting characters and all that they do and they are well-written and acted, but the emotions of out main couple just bring me to tears. I feel so bad for both of them. I can't wait to see the next episodes, I don't know what they'll bring. Will the little boy recognize his special friend, his lost bunny? Or will he just think it's a coincidence? Will he suffer a major shock when he realizes this as well? I think he'll be very shocked, but I think Sun Hye's fortune telling will somehow find a happy ending when she flips over the last card.

Ah, that last card. I totally forgot about it.

What I find the most interesting is that Min-kyu so confidently said if Aji-3 ever became human, then he’ll immediately recognize her. I’m not sure what the writer’s intention is, but those words would probably come back. Jia will probably throw them back to him once everything is revealed. That he promised he’d recognize his rabbit but he didn’t... or something.

Just when I thought that this show couldn't make my heart ache anymore, it took my heart and smashed it into a million tiny pieces. I've got to give props to Yoo Seung Ho and Chae Soo Bin, they do a hell of a job at tugging my heart strings.

This episode definitely let the pain and hurt set in, and it really isn't doing either of them well for the truth to stay hidden. I really do hope that Min Kyu realizes that Jia was his Aji 3 all along; I really don't think I could handle this hurt anymore. Even poor Ri El doesn't want to marry Min Kyu. I miss the cute scenes where Jia would have the butterflies after kissing Min Kyu. C'mon writers, just let these characters finally be happy again!!

Thank you for the recap, @sailorjumun ~!!!
I didn't comment on previous recaps because it wasn't until this weekend that I decided to buckle down and binge all the episodes (that we've been given), and that I did hehehe So I shall start commenting more =)
I felt pangs of emotions throughout my binge of the show, but it wasn't until this episode-- with the reset and the ensuing separation of our OTP-- that everything came down and s**t hit the fan and broke me T.T Let's start at the beginning:
1. Jia's insistence of ending things and setting the "reset" into motion, all for the well-being, quite literally, of Min Kyu despite what it would do to her (I mean, COME ON, THE GIRL CRIED HERSELF TO A LITERAL DEHYDRATED STATE AND *STILL* HAD MORE TEARS TO CRY BECAUSE SHE'S SO UPSET)-- this is TRUE noble idiocy... Doing something that is truly noble and beneficial for the other person at the expense of yourself T.T BREAK MY HEART, WHY DON'T YOU, SHOW?! Oh wait, YOU ALREADY HAVE, LIKE, A MILLION TIMES OVER IN THIS EPISODE T......T
2. Team Santa Maria I luff you, you fluffy bunch of tsundere researchers, you <3 That whole entire scene was the only time that I was crying some much needed happy tears in such a emotionally heavy episode
3. Every time Ji Ah cried (*Note: BAWLED HER EYES OUT), I cried with her. She's one of the most emotionally in check heroines of K-drama that we've basically had in such a long time <3 Jjiang ~!!!
4. Professor Hong, you giant teddy bear!!! I've never really had much attachment to him throughout the drama (thanks to our OTP just being too sweet and too cute for their own good and to the detriment of the viewers' hearts, #sorrynotsorry), but that scene of him just coming in to help Ji Ah with her scooter as his way of checking up on her was just *swoon*
5. Can we give a little appreciation as to how well Ri El is being written as the second female lead? I love that she is a girl that knows what she wants. I love that she's not the typical type that throws herself onto someone just because it's another guy. I love that she has her own thought processes and way of things. I love how she doesn't use the fact that Min Kyu has been mistakenly liking her for the last 15 years to her advantage but is shaping her own path as to how she wants to approach her relationship with Min Kyu
6. I AM NEVER GO TO READ OR INTERPRET THE STORY OF THE VELVETEEN RABBIT THE SAME WAY EVER AGAIN, THANKYOUVERYMUCH T....T
7. WHAT THE CRAP WAS THAT ENDING, SHOW?!!?!?!??!??! That ending just says to me that there is still more s**t to hit the fan before our dear and precious OTP will get there happy ending and before the hearts of us viewers will be able to catch a break, take a breathe before everything given their nice little bows and everyone gets their sweet ending. *Sigh* K-dramas and their endings..... WHAT'S NEW??!?!?

I’m not sure whether or not she would get back with Doctor Hong though, regardless if there is Min Kyu, not unless she also finds out and realizes that her breaking up with Doctor Hong in the first place was all because she misunderstood him— but seeing how K-dramas like their little bows and almost everything to have it’s own conclusion to things, I’m sure she will find out about the whole misunderstanding sooner or later, before the finale

my heart was officially diced, pulverized and smashed to paste these past episodes. I am not the type to easily cry, i'm usually stoic and actually avoid tv or movie dramas. I have little patience for it and my constant eye-rolling for tearjerkers are a menace to my eyeballs. I admit i was teary eyed during the childhood parts in the Moon that Embraces and that one time KSH was crying so brokenly,but i did not even watch the whole thing I was frustrated with the convoluted plot and the lead girl. r

The point is, that goodbye broke me. I was wondering about the heat at the back of my eyes before my tears just spilled down my face. I almost couldn't breathe from the rawness and strength of emotions that so suddenly got hold of me. And the cry fest continued on fo till 19th and 20th. I almost could not believe it except that the same thing happened on my rewatch.
So YSH, I applaud you for breaking the dam around my heart and CSB, guys you did me in. The way he whispered I love you and broke down completely crying with abandon, the way he tried to blink back his tears when BG told him they need to reset. The way he broke down with the lamp hearts and clutch his heart like the pain is almost physical. And CSB's sobs as if her heart was literally breaking, ahhh. Boy that hurts, but man it hurts so good.

I mean plotwise of course there are giant plot holes all over and a massive suspension of disbelief. In this case i don't mind. I adore these leads, I do, with fervor and actual protectiveness that i make myself cringe. I hate to be cheesy but for all the dramas of last year ( i took a bit of hiatus I was busy with work, watching only those with positive reviews on dramabeans, some I did not even finish) I finally and unexpectedly landed on the one Id be passionate about and this is it. (Now, also of Hwayugi ).

This is my first time watching YSH and now Im wondering where he has been all through my kdrama viewings. And CSB is a revelation here i did not realize how doll like her features are till she was wearing her robot get up. And I love her character here, unlike the usual female supposedly spunky leads who irritate me no end.
Didi I say how much I love this pairing? And though I appreciate the show healing my robo- heart, I just wish though that the next episodes help us graduate from the angst pls pretty pls. My still sensitive, bruised heart that has not completely healed from the onslaught may not be able to handle more heartbreak. I want the fun to return and the swooning commence!

Yes, good comment, yes!
There's real magic in this drama. It's not the smartest or full of clever lines, but there are real emotions at its core. I'm reluctant to just say 'ah, YSH and CSB can sell anything' because while it's the absolute truth, it's unfair towards every drama that bored me to death that had great actors handling an okay-ish script (= pretty much all the very popular ones). But not even dramas with great actors handling great scripts made me lie on the floor face-down in frustration that it's NOT WEDNESDAY YET GODDAMIT!
Like we really have to give it to the writer, she knows her shit. The premise is quirky and fun, the dialogues are natural despite their pathos, the plot is going against all predictions and expectations and so far every major character is sympathetic and rational.
I used to say that INAR is my guilty pleasure, but the only guilt I feel is how much I need to talk about it. I feel like a junkie, especially with the cliffhangers and small tragedies of the recent episodes. It caught me by surprise that I can still love something with such passion (usually reserved for video games and birds singing movie themes).

I still can't over anything. We all know that this separation is needed by all parties in order to start anew, but it's still so painful to go through with it. Seeing Min Kyu try to re-do everything he did with the first Aji-3. Denial at it's finest my dears. I'm fine, I think I can get another heart somewhere.

I feel like Aji-3 is exceeding her expected abilities, i think she's really learning beyond how she was programmed, something like Robin William's Bicentennial Man.

Oh Lord, and those "almost" instances. I just knew that they would get to meet one another, but I was honestly not expecting to see it so soon. We saw a break up and a reunion all within the same hour, which I thank the writer for for not milking that type of angst dry.

I still have so many thoughts regarding these episodes but alas, work has to take priority for now.

Aji-3 says "Extremely impressive" even after the MK folder was erased." This phrase was input by MK, and also spoken by Jia-as-a Aji3. Somewhere in the Aji-3, there will be a backup file/folder. I believe Aji-3 will help make the main leads together in the end.

I've been wondering what's the writer objective of adding that scene where Aji-3 still remembers bit of Min Kyu's input. Do we end there? Or Is it a sneak peak into Aji-3 's role on Jia-Min Kyu reunion? Oh, writer please..

I just guess that in Aji-3, there were folders for MK and also for Jia, even after MK's folder was erased, there might be the folder for Jia. In some situation, where MK cannot trust anyone, what is recorded and stored in the folder could serve as evidence. I also notice Jia and Aji-3 speak informally to each other. They seem to talk a lot (which is not on air) between themselves.

Frrrrraaaaack!! you cannot end it like that, I had waited for that very moment since I'd seen it on the preview only for them to end it like that. (raises fist), you suck.

Now then, obviously I was going to be a mess this episode but the santa maria team had me dying, my poor heart was all over the place; the way they were there for Min-Kyu was the most heartwarming thing I've witnessed. It was so perfect but so bittersweet without Jia (Aji3) and to have MK see her when he turns around just blegh, I was aww'ing all of the place 😔

Anyway, I just want to say that I really do feel bad for Yoo-Chul; poor dude is stuck in between a wedge and I know he means well sometimes, I don't get the bad guy vibe that his old man exudes, guy just wants to be recognized and not be belittled. He's always coming second place to Min-Kyu and to think he knew about the purpose of those papers as a kid. It's interesting because, yes, they were kids and his naivety of thinking that him signing would make him part of the feeling was truly why I think he may have pushed him to. I hope he and MK can somehow patch things up. I really do like Yoo-Chul, he's a rather interesting character.

And as always, thank so much for the lovely recap. 💕

They thought it was childish, unbelievable and felt the main leads were unlikable after watching the first few episodes. I've noticed that when korean viewers have a negative reaction to a drama in the first few episodes, bad word of mouth will spread like wildfire (due to centralized entertainment sites like naver) and it can be very hard to raise ratings after that.

I have no doubt it's well loved at this point by the viewers that have stuck around to watch it and I bet they are defending it when they can haha.

Anyone from Indonesia?

A friend of mine told me that she'd realized that the logo of the delivery company Jia worked part-time at was eerily similar to the logo of the Indonesian national postal service. I checked and I think that's the case. Maybe some assistant googled a good logo for delivery service and just copied the whole thing to sew on the jacket?

Please tell me what you think!

Just dropped by to say that you are right. The logo caught my attention too, since it is very....familiar. I did correspondence by mail many years back, and this is how it got so familiar. Hey, I even googled the name of the company, just to make sure. And voila. Just type 'POS INDONESIA' and you'll see it.

I'm Indonesian, so the logo is just too familiar to me, though I only realized it when my friend pointed out to me. I usually take notice of other details of a drama, and this sort of details often escape me.

She even messaged PT Pos Indonesia on Instagram to ask if they sponsored the drama (well, of course not!). So it's probably a case of assistant copying the logo straight off the internet. Is it OK, though?
