Woohoo Waikiki: Episode 4

Who would have thought that a show with the ridiculous title of Woohoo Waikiki could make me cry, much less several times in one episode. I get so caught up in the humor that the emotional moments catch me by surprise, which just makes them land that much harder. This little group of oddballs is starting to become a family, and although the process is strange and embarrassing, it’s also one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.

 
EPISODE 4: “Good work, today/His and her circumstances”

Joon-ki takes a job modeling skinny jeans for a home shopping channel. The host pushes him while he’s got his butt to the camera, intending to show how stretchy the jeans are, only to have them split and display Joon-ki’s hot pink undies to the world.

At home, Yoon-ah finds Seo-jin praying to land an interview from one of the newspapers she’s applied to. She notices that there’s a drama starring Lee Deok-hwa on and expresses her admiration of him as an actor. Seo-jin blandly tells her that Lee Deok-hwa is Joon-ki’s father, but when Yoon-ah wants an autograph, Seo-jin tells her that Joon-ki hates when people talk about his dad.

Joon-ki walks in, and the girls stop talking and look guilty. He demands to know what they were saying, but Doo-shik bounces in, all excited to show them something online. PWAHAHA, apparently the internet has gotten the picture of Joon-ki splitting his pants and photoshopped him into hundreds of famous photos.

He forgets his embarrassment when a film company calls, saying that they want to cast him in a movie. He meets with the director and learns that the movie is about a mother seeking revenge on the man who kidnapped her daughter. He’ll be playing the kidnapper’s accomplice, a small role, but Joon-ki is thrilled to learn that he’ll have scenes with the lead, a very famous actress named Kim Hee-ja.

Yoon-ah feeds Doo-shik and Seo-jin more of her muffins, but they’re starting to get twitchy since it’s all she’s cooked for days. Doo-shik dares to express a desire for something else, but Seo-jin elbows him, afraid that Yoon-ah might rap again.

Joon-ki runs in screaming his big news about the movie role. Doo-shik says they should have a party to celebrate, hoping for something to eat other than muffins, but Joon-ki dashes his hopes when he says he has to start studying his script right away.

When he arrives on set for his first day of filming, he’s starstruck by the leading actress, Kim Hee-ja (cameo by Kim Seo-hyung), but she walks past him as if in a daze. The director explains that she stays immersed in her role at all times, and they both cringe as she viciously attacks a box with a board. Yikes.

Their scene together is one where the mother confronts the kidnapper’s accomplice, loses control, and kills him. Hee-ja gives Joon-ki a menacing glare before they start the scene rehearsal, but things go pretty well at first. She knocks Joon-ki down, climbs on top of him, and slaps him, and he’s shocked when it’s a real, painful slap.

He stammers that this is just a rehearsal, but Hee-ja is lost in her role, and she grabs a glass jar and smashes it into Joon-ki’s head. She actually chokes him until he passes out, and the director has to pull her off of him to get her to stop.

Joon-ki wakes up terrified, gasping that he saw a tunnel and a bright light. Hee-ja slips out of character enough to apologize, and she steps out to calm down. The director wonders what they’ll do if she puts another actor in the hospital, which scares Joon-ki even more.

He’s not acting his fear during the next rehearsal, and this time when she gets him on the floor, Hee-ja really beats the crap out of him. She hits him with a baseball bat and throws a lamp on him before the director halts the rehearsal.

Dong-gu shows Yoon-ah and Sol the video he took of the baby’s birthday party, impressing Yoon-ah with his camera skills. Dong-gu says darkly that the baby’s tantrums convinced him that all humans are born evil, ha. Yoon-ah insists that making babies laugh is easy, and she demonstrates with Sol. Excited, Dong-gu takes notes on exactly what baby talk to use that made Sol laugh.

They’re all shocked when Joon-ki drags himself home looking like he’s been in a bar fight. He defends Kim Hee-ja, saying that these things happen when you’re acting, then he sort of passes out sitting up. He jerks awake violently, mutters something about white eyeballs in a dark shadow, then checks out again. This time when he wakes, he flops like a fish, shrieking apologies.

The day arrives to film the scene, and Joon-ki is instructed not to move once he’s “dead,” while Hee-ja sobs over his body. The poor guy is practically catatonic with fear, but he acts the scene well. He never moves, even when Hee-ja cries over him and a huge wad of snot drips from her nose right into Joon-ki’s open mouth. GAG.

Joon-ki politely excuses himself to the bathroom once the scene is over, and the director and Hee-ja both praise his acting ability and dedication. The director tells Hee-ja how he heard about Joon-ki, but we don’t hear what he says.

In the bathroom, Joon-ki scrubs his tongue, gagging and choking with disgust. But then he remembers the director said he did well and does a little victory dance.

Dong-gu is sent to another child’s party, this time for a baby boy’s 100-day birthday party. The baby is fussy, but all of the tricks Dong-gu learned from Yoon-ah just make him cry harder. He calls in Yoon-ah herself, who cheers up the baby easily.

The mother gets sick and needs to go to the doctor, so Yoon-ah offers to take care of the baby until she gets back. Dong-gu leaves for a moment, and while he’s gone, Yoon-ah checks out the adorable teddy bear outfit the baby’s mother asked her to change him into.

At the end of the day, the movie director invites everyone out for dinner. Noticing that Hee-ja seems upset, the director asks her what’s wrong. She snaps that she doesn’t want to eat with Joon-ki because she hates people who get special treatment because of their connections.

Evidently the director told her that Lee Deok-hwa requested that he cast Joon-ki as a favor. Joon-ki overhears the director, and he grows upset to hear that he didn’t earn this role with his own skills.

Dong-gu returns to find Yoon-ah taking pictures of a baby in a teddy bear outfit, and he jokes that the baby looks like Sol before realizing that it is Sol. A second later, the baby’s grandmother comes in (cameo by Kim Young-ok) and grabs Sol, mistaking her for her grandson.

Dong-gu tries to take Sol from her, but she refuses. Sol lets loose what sounds like a massive poo, and Dong-gu and Yoon-ah really start to panic when Grandma insists on changing her diaper.

Desperate, Dong-gu slaps Grandma’s hand every time she starts to remove Sol’s diaper, telling her to respect the baby’s privacy, hee. He whines that when he was little, he was traumatized when his grandmother changed his diaper saying she would “take it off,” and he misunderstood which “it” she meant.

Finally he just clamps his hands over Sol’s diaper, but Grandma smacks him and knocks him to the floor. While Dong-gu and Yoon-ah cringe, she finally gets a look inside Sol’s diaper and faints dead away.

Joon-ki waits for his father to come home, and he asks why he pulled strings to get him the movie role. His father (Lee Deok-hwa in a cameo as himself) says that he saw him on that home shopping channel and was embarrassed, so he asked a friend for a favor. He adds that he feels bad seeing his only child having a hard time.

Joon-ki says that he can’t be proud of himself because he’s Lee Deok-hwa’s son, the actor he respects the most. “That’s why I want to be successful without your help and be proud. Then I can be proud in front of you. Father, please trust me and let me do it on my own.”

His father relents, telling him to be on home shopping channels or take extra roles forever if that’s what he wants. He changes the subject, asking why Joon-ki wears pink underwear, and Joon-ki sheepishly says that they’re sexy. His father just laughs, and he watches proudly as Joon-ki heads home.

Joon-ki goes to the restaurant where the cast and crew are eating, and he formally apologizes to the director for getting the role due to a connection. After he leaves, actress Kim Hee-ja smiles to herself.

That evening, Yoon-ah hangs her head in shame over the party fiasco. When Dong-gu asks why she dressed up Sol in the other baby’s clothes, she explains that she felt sorry towards her daughter, because she wasn’t able to celebrate Sol’s 100th day, and can’t buy her pretty clothes or toys.

Joon-ki takes another home shopping gig, this time modeling an apparatus that supposedly helps improve your smile. The hostess makes him describe the apparatus in detail, and he drools all down his shirt as he talks with it still in his mouth.

He gets a call later to meet with a director, who tells him that he’s casting a morning drama. Joon-ki gets angry, assuming that his father called in another favor, but it turns out that Kim Hee-ja recommended him. She’s there, and she tells him that the director needed a talented, handsome actor, joking that at least he’s got the talented part down, ha.

At the guesthouse, Seo-jin calls Yoon-ah out of their room where she’s still sulking, to find that the housemates have set up an adorable little party for Sol’s 100th day. Yoon-ah bursts into tears, and Dong-gu looks annoyed when Doo-shik tattles that this was all his idea. Aww, I knew he was a marshmallow.

Dong-gu snaps at Yoon-ah to stop crying, and she tries, but she cries even harder when Joon-ki arrives with a cake. He’s also got a bottle of champagne, which he says is for his own celebration, because he landed a recurring role in the morning drama as the lead’s driver. LOL.

They pose for a picture, but just before the camera snaps the shot, Yoon-ah notices that there’s no ring. Not one of them is looking at the camera for the picture, and it’s adorable.

On another day, Joon-ki demonstrates his acting abilities in driving a car, then asks his friends which scene looked better. They can’t tell the difference, even when Joon-ki explains that he was playing them completely differently.

Yoon-ah carries in an old portable oven that she found on the street, intending to use it to bake muffins to sell. Dong-gu reluctantly agrees to let her try, so long as it doesn’t interfere with her chores at the guesthouse. But then she whirls around and smacks right into a mirror, smashing it to smithereens. Uh-oh.

Everyone gets excited when Seo-jin receives a text from one of the newspapers she applied to. She makes Joon-ki read it, and he sighs as if disappointed, then yells that they want to interview her. Dong-gu reminds Seo-jin that she still has to pass the interview, but she’s so thrilled that she doesn’t even care.

They suddenly realize that something is burning, and they run into the kitchen to find the oven that Yoon-ah brought home engulfed in smoke. Dong-gu unplugs it, and they all stare at Yoon-ah incredulously when she wonders out loud why someone would throw out something broken. LOL.

The others go upstairs to play a truth game, and when Joon-ki loses the bottle-spin, Seo-jin asks about his first kiss. They all regret it when he goes into excruciating detail and plead with him to stop. Yoon-ah joins them, and she loses the next bottle-spin.

Seo-jin asks her what happened between her and Sol’s father, and the room goes silent. Yoon-ah tells them the whole story: that she was orphaned at two, and was sent to live with relatives who took her parents’ insurance money and abandoned her in an orphanage. She ran away when the orphanage director abused her, and later met Sol’s father, whose parents broke them up.

She says that she found out later that she was pregnant with Sol, but Sol’s father doesn’t know. Before she can explain why, Sol cries and she has to go take care of her. The others tell Dong-gu to be nicer to her, and it’s interesting how disturbed he seems by her story.

On the day of Seo-jin’s interview, she shows off her fancy suit to Joon-ki and Doo-shik, who of course make fun of her. She twirls back towards her room, colliding with a guest, who dumps his cup of coffee all over her white blouse. With an angry glare at the guest, she rushes off to try to wash out the stain.

Yoon-ah is in the kitchen packing up muffins to sell. She walks away to take care of a fussing Sol, and Joon-ki decides that they should find Sol’s father as a way of helping Yoon-ah. He grabs Yoon-ah’s phone and sees that there are only two people in her contact list other than the Waikiki crew, so he guesses that the Kim Joon-sung listed there must be Sol’s father.

He calls the number from his phone, pretending to be a courier with a package from Yoon-ah, and Joon-sung confirms that he and Yoon-ah used to date. Joon-ki gets his address and drags Doo-shik out to hunt him down.

Dong-gu is negative to Yoon-ah about her plan to sell her muffins, although he does offer to help her. But she’s determined to do it herself, and she leaves Dong-gu looking worried.

Unfortunately, she doesn’t manage to sell a single muffin by the time Dong-gu can’t stand it anymore and comes to see how she’s doing. He gloats that nobody would buy muffins off the street, even criticizing Yoon-ah’s cute table decorations. He stops short when he realizes that Yoon-ah is crying (and so is Sol, awww).

Yoon-ah sobs that she felt bad enough for being unable to sell her muffins, but that he’s making her feel even worse. Desperate to stop the crying, Dong-gu offers to help her sell the muffins.

Joon-ki and Doo-shik go to the address to find that it’s an unfinished house. Kim Joon-sung is there inspecting the workers’ progress, but before Joon-ki can tell him why they came, Joon-sung is joined by his fiancee.

Joon-ki chickens out, fibbing that he and Doo-shik are part-timers here to help with the house. LOL, Doo-shik’s expression is priceless. They try to slink away, but the foreman stops them and forces them to get to work.

Seo-jin is frantically drying her blouse when the guest who spilled coffee on her calls out for help. She throws her jacket on over her cropped tank top and goes out to bark at him to get his own towels. She’s running late, and she rushes out to her interview, forgetting to stop and put her blouse back on.

Dong-gu is dismal at selling muffins, but Yoon-ah won’t let him give up. He asks why she never told Sol’s father about her, and she says that she wants to raise Sol on her own, which is why she decided to start her own business.

Touched, Dong-gu throws himself into selling the muffins. But a pair of inspectors approach them, asking if they have a permit (Yoon-ah: “Of course! Dong-gu gave me permission!”)

The job interview is at a restaurant, where the male employee interviews Seo-jin and another woman at the same time. Right away he offers them drinks and tells them to take their jackets off, which is when Seo-jin notices that she’s not wearing an actual shirt. The server dumps an entire plate of raw meat on her, but even then, Seo-jin vehemently refuses to take off her jacket.

At least Joon-ki and Doo-shik are paid for their day of hard labor. Joon-ki wants to try talking to Joon-sung again, but Doo-shik argues that a man about to be married won’t welcome the news that he has a baby. Whoops, Joon-sung overheard him.

As the interview continues, Seo-jin realizes that the interviewer is a sexist pig. He compliments the other candidate’s looks and says that the men at the paper like glamorous women. Seo-jin excuses herself to the restroom, wishing she could swat the guy, but reminding herself that she really needs this job.

On her way back, she overhears the interviewer as he threatens not to hire the other candidate unless she goes out with him. Seo-jin slams into the room to yell at the guy, and when he puts a hand on her shoulder, it’s the last straw. She grabs a slab of raw meat and smacks him in the face with it.

Unfortunately, the other candidate isn’t happy about Seo-jin coming to her defense. She yells at Seo-jin for possibly ruining her chance at the job, then rushes to the interviewer to fawn over him. Seo-jin is left speechless and disillusioned.

After they get back home, Doo-shik and Joon-ki argue over which of them is responsible for spilling the beans to Joon-sung about Sol. They’re about to come to blows when Dong-gu and Yoon-ah return, and Dong-gu tells them that Yoon-ah’s muffins got confiscated. HAHA, and awww.

Yoon-ah leaves to put Sol to bed just as Joon-sung shows up, wanting to see her. He pulls Yoon-ah outside, and Joon-ki and Doo-shik quickly fill in Dong-gu on who he is and the fact that they told him about Sol.

The guys lurk in the bushes, eavesdropping on Yoon-ah and Joon-sung’s conversation. Joon-sung accuses Yoon-ah of trying to ruin his life, then hands over an envelope of money and tells her never to contact him again. He warns her not to expect more, because he doesn’t even know if he’s really the baby’s father.

Yoon-ah looks confused and upset, but Dong-gu looks downright murderous. He marches straight yo Joon-sung and punches him, then grabs him by the collar and starts yelling at him. It takes Yoon-ah a few seconds to get his attention and tell him, “That guy isn’t Sol’s father.”

She explains that she just went on a blind date with Joon-sung once. Doo-shik asks Joon-sung why he believed he might be Sol’s father. Joon-sung says that he got drunk and passed out while on their date, so he thought something might have happened that he doesn’t remember.

Seo-jin gets stinking drunk and sits on a bench, sadly telling her story to a statue. She invites the statue to tell her his problems, and advises him to wear pants when he goes on a job interview, showing him that she’s not wearing a blouse.

After taking a revenge punch from Joon-sung, Dong-gu ends up back at the house’s media room. Yoon-ah brings him an egg to hold on his shiner, and she asks if he punched Joon-sung for her. Dong-gu stammers that he didn’t, but she thanks him anyway, for letting her stay here.

“Before I came, I was always lonely,” she says. “But I don’t feel that way these days. I have people that worry about me now. I’ve never had family, so I wouldn’t really know, but if I did have a family, I think this is how it would feel.”

Yoon-ah offers to hold the egg on Dong-gu’s face, but he resists. They fight over it, until Dong-gu pulls too hard and smashes the egg into his face. He shrieks at Yoon-ah, and this time she yells right back. She tells Dong-gu that he’s not the only one with a temper, and they bonk foreheads, neither willing to back down first.

 
COMMENTS

These two are way too cute! I knew they would be, once Dong-gu started softening towards Yoon-ah and she got over her fear of his grumpy personality. She knows now that he’s all bark and no bite, and she’s starting to stand up to him, which is just so much fun to watch. Dong-gu tries so hard to stay grumpy around Yoon-ah, but he’s starting to care about her, and it’s all downhill from here. He gave himself away by throwing Sol a party when Yoon-ah said she wasn’t able to, and although I don’t think there are any romantic feelings there yet, it’s just a matter of time. She’s gotten under his skin, her and that adorable baby, and pretty soon he’ll be in love before he even realizes it.

The look on Dong-gu’s face as he was gearing up to punch that jerk was really telling. I think that’s the moment when he finally accepted Yoon-ah as one of them, whether he’s aware of it or not. His expression said that he was going to murder this man who dared to insult his family, and even though they turned out to be wrong about the guys identity, Dong-gu’s reaction was pretty revealing. Joon-ki and Doo-shik care about Yoon-ah and Sol enough to go out of their way to help them, but it’s Dong-gu who took real action when he felt that Yoon-ah was being disrespected.

This show is absolutely lousy with cameos, but I particularly adored Lee Deok-hwa’s cameo in this episode (all the cameos are awesome, but this one was particularly fun). Having a famous actor for a father explains a lot about Joon-ki’s passion for acting and his determination to be successful, as well as his impatience when every role he lands is a non-speaking role. That’s why I was so excited for him when he got the latest job offer, because it’s something he did on his own. He has a lot to live up to with such a famous father, and I loved the glimpse into Joon-ki’s family life and the knowledge that his father supports his dream, and even tries to help him achieve it, even though Joon-ki doesn’t want the help.

This episode just killed me with its surprise emotional moments, and I found myself tearing up several times. I appreciate those moments because they temper the over-the-top humor, reminding us that the characters aren’t just ridiculous caricatures who do everything wrong, but people with hopes and dreams. Joon-ki got me right in the heart when he begged his father to let him succeed or fail on his own so that he could be proud of himself. Yoon-ah’s breakdown over her failure to sell her muffins was particularly poignant because she was so disappointed, but what really hurt her was Dong-gu’s disapproval. And then later when she told Dong-gu that she feels like she has a family for the first time in her life, I was a goner.

Those moments show that, while the characters in Woohoo Waikiki have dreams they want to realize, what really matters to them is the love and approval of those they care about. And that’s something that’s so universal, so indelibly human, that you can’t help but love them for it.

Raw meat slap was awesome.

The drama seems to be settling into a nice pace. Really enjoying the back stories and such. Hope there's more like this and less of the gross-out humor now (I had to scroll really fast past that part of the recap, I can't even read it).

I couldn’t watch the booger scene and was gagging just imagining it. But, (and, this is where my inner gross monster surfaced, I guess), I spent an inordinate time explaining the scene to a friend. He was basically disgusted, but whatevs!

Every episode has been better than the last, and that's a good sign. I loved the balance in this episode between humor and heart, and I hope they continue on in that groove.

I was also thrilled to see Yoon-ah stand up to Dong-gu. She can be so feisty, and I find her a lot more interesting when she's being bold rather than mousy (Like the time she defended Dong-gu at the dinner or chased after his ex). Their little head butt was like a preview for all the times they're going to hilariously butt heads from now on and I cannot. wait. I was so annoyed and Dong-gu for telling her to stop crying when he spent all last episode sobbing under a blanket!

I have liked so many of their scenes together, but have never felt a sparkle of romantic chemistry between them. I like friends to lovers most anyway, so it will be fun to see them get close as friends. But in that last scene in this ep you could see that the crackle is there, and could light at any moment. It's so great to have a single mom be a romantic lead, partly because Dong-gu will let his guard down since he would't imagine she'd be someone he'd fall for. It's gonna be a fun ride.

I've been seeing this theme of sexual harassment a lot lately in dramaland, and it's great they keep pointing out the issues that exist. It was a nice and sad twist to have the other girl essentially just take the abuse for the position.

Joon-ki was great as always--it adds a nice layer to his character to have found out about his famous dad. And I like that they pointed out that he really can act--because he ends up in so many ridiculous situations it's easy to forget he's talented.

I went from not totally sure about this show to totally onboard this week--bring it on, Waikiki!

Reading the recap made me laugh out loud all over again.
1. Joon Ki is positively stealing the show with his earnestness and drive to be successful no matter what!
2. The other part that still kills me is "Who would throw out a BROKEN toaster oven?"
Love this show! And thanks for recapping it!

#2: The reactions of the housemates was gold! I like Dong Gu just said what we were all thinking and the other housemates are so understanding.

A corollary to this is also "Why would someone throw out a working [insert appliance found on the street]?" ---> "Because it's broken. That's why! You'll see!"

Ok, am I the only one who thought Yoona's past was invented? It reminded me of a daily drama. Plus, still don't get the reason why she went to their house and left the baby there back at episode 1. Something is wrong here...

And yes, I gagged, HARD, at the part. And I swear that the PD/writer wants to make people leave with those idiotic scenes :(

It's too bad that every episode has gross humor (only 1 damn scene), cause I would love to watch this drama with people....

I can't rub off the feeling that Yoon-ah might be a con artist because her story is too dramatic.

I'd be really disappointed if the writer made Yoon Ah into a con artist. She's unbelievably naive to the point where the viewer might wonder, "Is this an act? Or is she for real?"? Plus, Dong Gu would be crushed. That's something else I don't want to see. His tsundere facade is starting to crack, and if she was a con artist, it would do him in.
The whole interview/sexual harassment scene was fantastic. I could have done without the meat slap, but the part where the other interviewee was willing to go on a date with the boss or whatever to get the job was spot on. Women can be each other's worst enemies sometimes. Scenes like that make me forgive the gross-out humor.

In an earlier episode, she did mention she has no parents or grandparents. Not sure if that orphanage and boyfriend's parents splitting them up stuff in true. It would be that the drama is just riffing off the "tragic past" a weekend drama heroine would usually get. I also have trouble reconciling her as the person who left her baby behind, stole her back, and ran through the streets like an action star.

I called it in episode 1 that her sob story seems made up. Like she just invented it to make people take pity on her and let her stay. She might have scaled and targeted them because they are a bunch of nice kids. Curious curious.

Lol, I'm so gullible that I didn't even think of the possibility that Yoon Ah might not be quite as clueless as she's been these first few episodes. But now I'm starting to agree with y'all. It would be heartbreaking, but very interesting if this turned out to be the case.

Also, I had to look away during that scene. Same with the nose-picking last episode. I don't mind that they do gross humor here and there because I think one of the charms of the show is the various degrees of humor it can do. I personally just can't stomach some of it. :P

This show keeps getting better. And maybe now looks to be more than just stupid people doing stupid things. Because we are starting to see real growth in the characters. As much as Dong Gu loved his girlfriend for 4 years maybe she wasn't so good for him- he literally got no-where either personally or in his career. Maybe he what he needs is a warm but feisty momma who cannot permit him to fail. And, that final scene is classic foreshadowing- Anyone who was seeing them for the first time at that moment would immediately assume tat they were watching a husband and a wife in an intense discussion. And maybe these chuckleheads will not remain losers after all- It seems like Joon-ki may have just climbed onto the first rung of the ladder of success.

In an earlier episode recap, a beanie mentioned they were slightly put off by Yoon-ah because she seemed to slyly get what she wanted out of the housemates. This is the first episode Yoon-ah annoyed me slightly with Sol’s 100th day celebration. “It would be perfect if there was cake” and “it would be more perfect if there was the gold ring.” I was thinking these people have known you maybe one month, just be grateful for what they give you

I was put off by that too. They’re the nicest people she’s ever met and she seems to be taking advantage of their kindness. Makes me wonder if she’s shameless, insensitive, or manipulative.

They had no money for bills, but were forced to buy formula and breast pump, also a toy. She’s staying for free, yet she asks for cake and gold ring? Yeah, she cleans and watched over the house. And where did she get the money to buy ingredients for her business? From the house budget?

But I am willing to give her a pass because she seems truly nice and harmless. She’s also doing her best for her daughter.

Yes! that is also a reason why I don´t like (or have not liked) her that much from the beginning, because she is just inspiring pity in order to get things she needs, but well... yes, at least they are all things for the baby, and maybe the show will redeem her later when she turns out to be a Chaebol´s daughter like somebody said, or maybe she will earn lots with her muffins, and somehow pays them back... I hope... because I think she has abused them a little bit, or maybe just too much taking into consideration she is a stranger (even until this episode).

jeez people, are you guys for real???
that ring scene was supposed to be a joke, most likely an adlib.
imagine if joonki were yoonah and he asked the same thing as what she said, you guys probably would laugh about it.
damn... female lead even in a wacko drama like this one has to suffer to fans nitpicking every single thing

I don’t think anyone is nitpicking, we’re commenting on how it can annoying how clueless she can be to the point it comes off rude. I witnessed a similar situation between 2 friends IRL where one was pretty much Yooah- “thanks for the $75 gift card, you couldn’t just add $25 more.” It’s not cute no matter how clueless and innocent the person is. If Joon-ki said the comment, one they have been friends or years not weeks, two it’s still rude as hell to say and three his friends would have told him to shut it and be grateful

Junki’s acting and TV misadventures are still the highlight of this show. I threw up with that bodily fluid/snot bit. Cameos in this drama are awesome. Junki appa is awesome actor Deokhwa and an awesome dad, yay!

Poor people have to eat muffins for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They must be eating muffins in their sleep too. Grumpy Dunggo is so cute, of course he just “happens to pass her by while walking” LOL. I can’t wait til he truly warms up to YA and Sol and form one little happy family. Preview showed a wedding! 😸

Of course 2/3 of our mumbling idiots would caused trouble. Then our seemingly normal sis wore a sports bra to her job interview. LOL. I’ve seen the iconic kimchi slap, and Seojin’s bulgogi slap is coming down to the history books.

@LollyPip I also cried when Seo-jin was talking to herself about how it was unfair the job interview, but how she felt proud of herself, even though it seemed what she did was wrong. It made me remember Noh Eun seol in Protect the Boss, but Seo-jin really made me cry, and right after that, made me laugh when I realised she was talking to the statue... Oh my God!!
And I also cried a little when Yoon ah was telling Dong gu that she felt they were like family to her, and that she was always alone before... I recognize I have not liked Yoon ah so much, but i am soften up to her, or I could say, she is softing me up little by little.
I agree with you. This show makes me laugh most of the time, but once in a while it has started to tear me up a little as well. I like that. I like it very much...

They are working on it like @V said. They are hunting for them.

I think it is beyond their control that the site is being used for a phishing scam. Might need to turn on or add some security measures within their server.

Hey, and I thought it happens to me only, because my telephone has something weird. It has me also nervous of viruses. Sometimes when I want to read a recap and all the comments, I have to open the page and turn off the internet in my telephone immediately, so that I know I can read without interruptions. It is really annoying. I hope they can fix it.

The grandma diaper scene is funnier with added context, because the baby is the first boy born into the family in generations, so Grandma wants to change his diaper to see the family jewels in person. She presumably faints after opening the diaper and realizing that something important's missing.

And here I thought this show would just be treating me to a weekly dose of LOLs. But then the onion ninjas started showing up too. UGH, it keeps getting better!

Watched this ep after reading recap to know which gross part to skip over.
Yoon-ah is suspicious, what if instead of an orphan, she's a runaway over-protected heiress instead..?

I have had my eyes on Lee Yi Kyung since School 2013, and am delighted that he is doing so well in this drama.

Whenever I see the role of 'famous actress' in a series for some reason I always imagine they're doing Bae Doona. I was watching the first season of 'Vampire Prosecutor' recently and thought the famous veteran actress actress role in an episode was a Bea Doona impression. Maybe its just me.
