Fox Bride Star: Episodes 9-10

The employees at Incheon International face their first life-threatening emergency, and while some don’t show their best sides, others turn out to be quiet heroes. The crisis affects one member of the Terminal Two team very personally, prompting another to risk exposing a secret in order to help. The result may be irreversible, but in the best way possible.

 
EPISODE 9: “Human error”

While still at work, Soo-yeon’s entire right arm suddenly goes lifeless, and he drops the letter of apology (for disobeying the head of Customs) that he was carrying. He tries to make his arm move, but it refuses to respond, and he wonders if something was badly damaged when he was stabbed with the pen knife earlier.

In-woo enters the office and peers closely at Soo-yeon, asking if something is wrong. He picks up the letter Soo-yeon dropped, and as he holds it out, Soo-yeon’s hand becomes responsive again just in time for him to take it back. Seeing the duct tape on Soo-yeon’s sleeve, In-woo asks if he’s okay, but Soo-yeon says it’s too late — that’s a question In-woo should have asked twelve years ago.

Soo-yeon retreats to a storage room where he can check out his arm in private. It’s definitely damaged, and some biological material (at least I hope it’s not part of his actual arm) sloughs off from the spot where he was stabbed.

As a plane approaches the runway, a bird is sucked into one of the engines and causes a fire. The pilots struggle to keep the plane under control, and from the airport itself, it looks like a ball of fire is hurtling through the air. Yeo-reum, excited about her mother’s arrival tonight, gets a text about the emergency and is horrified to realize that her mother is on the damaged plane.

Dae-ki and Young-joo are part of the security team dispatched to be on hand when the plane lands. When Young-joo admits that this is her first emergency, Dae-ki mutters, “It’s my first time, too.”

Soo-yeon is near the tarmac when he gets the text, and then a call from Manager Gong to get to the scene. On the way, he spots Yeo-reum through a window at the terminal, looking stricken as she watches the plane descend.

Every available emergency vehicle heads to the runway, preparing for the inevitable injuries (or worse) when the plane lands. On the plane, attendants rush to get the passengers buckled in and prepared for a rough landing. Yeo-reum’s mother tells the young boy sitting next to her that he’s very brave, and he gives her a tight little smile.

As Yeo-reum watches, the plane plummets out of the sky, and the entire airport holds its breath. Amazingly, the pilots manage to touch down on the runway without too much trouble, and everyone heaves a sigh of relief. The plane’s crew prepares to evacuate the passengers, the fire trucks go to work putting out the engine fire, and Yeo-reum’s mom high-fives her young seatmate in relief.

Soo-yeon rushes to where Yeo-reum is waiting, and he has to stop her from running out to the plane and putting herself in danger. When he sees the look of extreme panic on her face, he asks what’s wrong, and she gasps, “My mom is on that plane!”

Eun-seob is worried since Yeo-reum isn’t answering his calls or texts. He gets in trouble for being on him phone during an emergency, but Manager Park calms down when Eun-seob tells him he knows someone on the plane, though he says they still have to do their jobs.

In-woo reports to Manager Kwon that the emergency landing was a success, and the engine fire is being put out now. They still don’t know how many people were injured, but Seo-koon is setting up an area in the terminal for any injuries to be treated, and for those uninjured to get food and water.

Manager Kwon puts Team Leader Lee in charge of handling the press, and gives In-woo authority over the landing site. The fact that nearly all other flights are delayed causes a lot of unhappiness with the airport’s other passengers.

Soo-yeon calls Seo-koon for an update on the plane that made the emergency landing, telling her that Yeo-reum’s mother is on the plane. Yeo-reum asks for permission to go to the plane, but Seo-koon tells her that she can either get back to work, or go to the family waiting area and wait. She does say it would be good if Yeo-reum came back to the office to help out since all flights are delayed, but adds that she’ll understand if Yeo-reum can’t.

After Seo-koon hangs up, Soo-yeon asks Yeo-reum hesitantly if she wants him to take her to the waiting room. She says she knows where it is, but he asks, “Do you want me to stay by your side? That’s what I’m asking you right now.” Something about the way he says it makes Yeo-reum stop and ask what he means.

He explains that just saying not to worry won’t help her feel better, and he knows she can’t go back to work, so he thought it might help if he just stayed with her. Yeo-reum seems disappointed that that’s all he meant, so she says she’s fine, and goes on alone.

Soo-yeon watches her go, then gasps like he momentarily forgot to breathe. He gets a text from a coworker to come back to the office because Manager Gong is angry, then thinks about Yeo-reum’s face when she told him her mother is on the plane, and he makes a decision.

He calls Yeo-reum and asks her mother’s name, then hangs up again. Claiming to be in charge of guiding uninjured passengers back to the terminal, he goes out to the plane, where passengers are just beginning to be evacuated.

On the plane, a male passenger is trying to get off ahead of the women and children, yelling that first class passengers should be evacuated first. Yeo-reum’s mom speaks up and tells the man to follow orders, but he snaps at her that women always want equality until inequality benefits them. Annoyed, she offers to wait until last with him if that’s what he’s mad about.

In the terminal, In-woo, who’s been told about Yeo-reum’s mother by Seo-koon, finds Yeo-reum sitting on the stairs trying to call her mom. He tells her that no passengers were seriously injured, and she’s grateful and relieved for the update. He offers to walk her to where the passengers are being taken after evacuation.

Outside, Soo-yeon asks the women traveling alone if they’re Yoon Hye-won, but Yeo-reum’s mom is still on the plane with the belligerent businessman. Suddenly the plane lurches, and the businessman jumps up, shoves Yeo-reum’s mom out of the way, and starts crowding his way to the front. Yeo-reum’s mom hits her head on a seat and crumples to the floor, badly hurt.

The businessman continues to push and shove people out of his way until he makes it onto the bus. He draws the attention of Dae-ki, Young-joo, and Soo-yeon, but for some reason, nobody stops him. Soo-yeon hears someone on the walkie-talkie say that a woman was injured on the plane, and Dae-ki sends Young-joo in to help. Before she goes, she notices that Soo-yeon isn’t where he was standing a moment ago.

A flight attendant helps Yeo-reum’s mom into a seat and tells her that he called the emergency team. While she’s alone, the flashing emergency lights start to make her feel sick. She closes her eyes, and someone — Soo-yeon — puts a cold pack on her forehead and tells her to keep her eyes closed.

He leans her back when he sees that her head is bleeding, doing his best to make her comfortable. He hands her a cup of water, and she drinks and hands it back. Soo-yeon’s arm goes limp again when he takes the cup, just as Young-joo and the emergency team arrive.

EPISODE 6 RECAP

When the emergency team come for Yeo-reum’s mom, she’s alone, but Young-joo sees the first aid kit abandoned on the floor. She looks around curiously, but a teammate makes her come with them. Soo-yeon hides in the back of the plane, willing his right arm to work again.

Eventually the fire is extinguished, and all the passengers are safely evacuated with no serious injuries. Seo-koon jokes to Team Leader Choi that the press almost seemed disappointed, and he tells her that he heard Yeo-reum’s mother was on the last bus.

Seo-koon finds Yeo-reum in the passenger evacuation area instead of the family waiting area, running around bringing the passengers water, and Yeo-reum says it’s the best place to find her mother. Seo-koon tells her that her mother is on the last bus just arriving and sends her off.

Team Leader Choi watches Seo-koon fondly as she takes over the work that Yeo-reum was doing, and In-woo comes up behind him and comments that Seo-koon acts strong, but she’s really tender-hearted. Team Leader Choi says frostily that he’s not interested in discussing Seo-koon with In-woo. In-woo asks if Team Leader Choi is still mad after two years, and Team Leader Choi snaps that he holds grudges.

Yeo-reum finally finds her mother being escorted into the terminal by Dae-ki and Young-joo. She runs into her mom’s arms and bursts into tears, and as they hug and cry, Dae-ki looks like he might cry himself (such a squishy bear!). Soo-yeon, his arm still hanging limply at his side, smiles a little as he watches from a distance, and only Young-joo sees him turn to go.

In-woo asks Team Leader Choi about Soo-yeon and his support device, curious to know if it was reported to Security Services and whether someone with a level one disability can live a normal life. Team Leader Choi says that Soo-yeon’s support device helps him, but when In-woo asks exactly what support device, Team Leader Choi thinks about Seo-koon’s request for him to forget what he knows and declines to comment.

While Yeo-reum’s mom watches her daughter comfort passengers, Seo-koon sits and introduces herself. Mom says that Yeo-reum must owe Seo-koon a lot, and Seo-koon just quips, “Yes, well,” making Mom chuckle.

The businessman is stopped by Security for purposely injuring another passenger during evacuation. The man claims it wasn’t him, but the attendant behind him says it was him, and when faced with handcuffs, the businessman submits to questioning.

The delayed planes begin boarding, and work continues as usual. Young-joo finally gets the chance to tell Dae-ki that Soo-yeon was at the accident site, but he thinks she mistook someone else for Soo-yeon, since he’d have no reason to be there.

Mom calls Yeo-reum, who’s been so busy she didn’t even notice her mother leaving for home. She tells Yeo-reum that her friend helped her on the plane — we see that she’d asked Soo-yeon who he was, and he’d simply said, “I’m Han Yeo-reum’s friend.” Confused, Yeo-reum asks at Security, and Dae-ki says it wasn’t them, but Young-joo tells her to ask Soo-yeon.

When Yeo-reum calls Soo-yeon, he doesn’t answer. He waits for Bartender Jang to pick him up, and when he arrives, Soo-yeon tells him that his legs work fine but his arm isn’t okay. Bartender Jang helps Soo-yeon into the car, and as they leave, Yeo-reum tries again to reach Soo-yeon.

She’s at her desk now, where Soo-yeon’s bag still sits in his chair, and Manager Gong complains that Soo-yeon was no help at all in the emergency. Seo-koon tells them that Soo-yeon said he’s not feeling well and went home early.

Eun-seob finally gets Yeo-reum on the phone and asks where she’s planning to sleep, having been kicked out of her apartment a few days early, but she just hangs up without answering. But Eun-seob sees her across the terminal, despite having claimed she’d already left the airport, and she’s carrying Soo-yeon’s bag.

Worried for Soo-yeon, Seo-koon visits the Fox Bride Star bar, but it’s closed. In-woo shows up, looking as surprised to see her as she is to see him. He says he hasn’t been here in twelve years — the last time was with a friend who was like a brother, but he got in an accident and injured his arm and leg, and In-woo hasn’t seen him since.

He adds that he recently saw that friend again, and Seo-koon asks why he’s telling her this. In-woo says he thought she might know why his former friend suddenly showed up in his life again, looking totally normal. Finally using Soo-yeon’s name, In-woo asks if she brought him to Terminal Two, or if Soo-yeon asked to come.

Bartender Jang works on Soo-yeon’s arm, taking it apart section by section until all that’s left is Soo-yeon’s own flesh and blood. He pulls a piece of metal out of the area where Soo-yeon was stabbed, mentioning that it’s good he can’t feel pain, and tells Soo-yeon that he’ll have to go without his device until it’s repaired. He says Soo-yeon will need to take a day off tomorrow, since it will take him a while to fix.

Soo-yeon admits that he was scared: “I was worried about people looking at me.” He remembers how people would stare at him when he was still in casts and a wheelchair, and says that he never wants to experience that again. Bartender Jang promised Soo-yeon that he won’t need to, and warns him not to be late tomorrow.

Soo-yeon thinks that all he’s ever wanted was a normal life. He declines another call from Yeo-reum, so she texts that she has his bag, and that she’s in front of the cafe where they first met. Soo-yeon agonizes over whether to go with his arm like it is, but eventually he shows, his hand shoved into his jacket pocket.

He steps close enough to share his umbrella with Yeo-reum, telling her blandly to hold it while he shrugs his bag over his shoulder. Yeo-reum asks what happened to his arm, but he says it’s none of her business. He turns to go, but Yeo-reum calls out, asking if he saw her mom.

When he stops, she runs out to cover him with the umbrella. She tells him that her mom said a friend of hers helped her, but he lies that it wasn’t him. He frustratingly answers all of her questions in the negative until she tells him that Young-joo saw him.

He asks why Yeo-reum came here, and she says she’s curious, and wonders if he likes doing anonymous good deeds. He says no, and that he also doesn’t like playing hero. Finally Yeo-reum asks, “Then, do you like me?”

There’s a long pause while the world slows down around them, then Soo-yeon answers, “Yes.” He turns to walk away, leaving Yeo-reum staring after him in shock.

 
COMMENTS

A confession so soon! And that was about as unambiguous as you can get – Yeo-reum won’t be able to pretend that Soo-yeon meant anything but exactly what he said. I love that he’s so open about how he feels but I really didn’t expect him to just blurt out the truth like that.

Soo-yeon and his feelings are killing me right now. You know that he hasn’t got much relationship experience because of the way he holds himself apart from people, which makes his willingness to be honest with Yeo-reum about the way he feels that much more touching. His hesitant offer to stay with her while she waited for her mother was so moving because it was the first time he let on that he felt more for Yeo-reum than just as a colleague, and I’m glad that she noticed the moment and what it seemed to mean, even if she did misunderstand at first. I wish she’d seen the way he had to remind himself to breathe, because that moment gave away more even than his question to her. It’s hard enough for anyone to admit that they care about someone, but for Soo-yeon, who’s been hurt badly in the past when he let himself love someone, just saying “I want to stay with you right now” is momentous.

I wasn’t expecting In-woo to be such a jerk, especially since he seemed pretty jovial, if annoying, when we first met him. I know there’s got to be a lot of history between him and Soo-yeon that we’ll uncover over time, but he feels so malevolent and hostile when there doesn’t seem to be any reason for it. He’s pursuing the truth as if Soo-yeon is at Terminal Two at him, and it just feels strange that he’s so angry just at Soo-yeon’s mere existence in his space. We still don’t know what happened the night of Soo-yeon’s accident, but before that, he and In-woo appeared to have a close relationship, so I’m very curious to know why In-woo never even bothered to find out if Soo-yeon lived, and what happened to make him so angry about Soo-yeon’s presence in Terminal Two.

The show is really dragging out the secret of Soo-yeon’s arm (and leg as well, apparently). Now we’ve seen that the prosthetic is not a permanent part of his arm — he still has his original arm, and the metal prosthetic fits on over it. But there’s still some deep, dark secret that he’s hiding that would shock people if they knew, and I can’t for the life of me think of any reason why he would have to guard the fact that he even wears a prosthetic so closely. It’s got to be something universally upsetting, because Soo-yeon is hiding from everyone besides Seo-koon, even Yeo-reum.

I really love the way this drama is filmed and edited, with soft, muted lighting and scenes that carry a lot of weight not so much because of what’s being said, but what’s left unsaid. Lee Je-hoon has a particular gift of subtlety, yet you can tell exactly what Soo-yeon is thinking even when he’s not saying it in words. I was particularly moved by the moment I already mentioned, when Soo-yeon asked Yeo-reum if she wanted him to stay with her, because even though his words were simple and straightforward, his eyes and expression said so much more. It’s as if he was pleading with Yeo-reum to ask him to stay, but she was too distraught to see it. The show is full of such emotionally loaded scenes, and it actually makes it more difficult to recap because you just can’t describe those moments in words, but watching them is such a lovely, moving experience. I’m so happy that Fox Bride Star has settled into itself, and I’m enjoying it so much more than I originally thought I would.

I absolutely adore Soo-yeon. Take a page out of this writer's book other drama writers, this is how you write a male lead. I'm also really looking forward to Soo-yeon, Yeo-reum, Dae-gi, and Young-joo forming some kind of bond. I always live for unlikely friendships in dramas.
I'm going to say, I was super anxious until the end because the actress playing Yeo-reum's mom has a knack for dying unexpectedly every time she's someone's mother, so I'm glad she survived.

lol she was also in Sassy Go Go with Chae Soo Bin, only in that one she was playing Jung Eunji's mother instead (and she didn't die!)

There's actually a scene in which CSB looks a little sad/jealous of Eunji for having a mother like her, but now she got her as a mom in a different drama!

'....so I’m very curious to know why In-woo never even bothered to find out if Soo-yeon lived, and what happened to make him so angry about Soo-yeon’s presence in Terminal Two.'

Soo-yeon knows the real In woo and In woo can't manipulate things with him around. Whatever went down, In woo was able to go away and reinvent himself into whatever he wanted. Whatever it is, I think that it can effect In woo's job and his new life.

Also, this is the beginning of Soo yeon just being stupid for Yeo reum.

I cannot wait for Yeo-reum to return the stupid in love favour. They are severely adorable together.
Also, I struggle to understand the obsession with Soo-yeon's bionic arm that everyone seems to have. So he's disabled, why is this a big deal?

Exactly! I don't get In-woo's obsession with Soo-yeon's prosthetic arm either. I know it's a lot more powerful than a normal arm, but does he really have to go around trying to find out what it is? Seems like he's expecting to expose some kind of witchcraft.

I don't get it either. Maybe its supposef to show how badly people react to disabled people in Korea? Maybe there is still a strong prejudice which we don't seem to grasp.

Or maybe there is a big weird secret were all just missing.

I just dont get the dramatic treatment of it. He had a disability. He functions normally with a supportive device like a prosthetic arm. You can't notice a thing. How does this require extreme secrecy and shocking reactions when people find out?

I think it's probably illegal/unlicensed technology. Soo-yeon probably doesn't want/can't afford to have any attention brought to him or the bartender but his secretive nature makes people suspicious. (and he crushes metal poles with his arm so ofc people are curious)

While technically Soo-yeon has a disability, I don't have any expectation for this drama to address that plot point given his bionic arms. But then this eps happened, and I'm surprised by Soo-yeon's raw and honest answer about being scared of other's prejudice against his condition. Is that means we'll see this show seriously tackling this issue? Will we see various yet realistic reactions about it from all those characters? (I just hope that wouldn't make me hate Team Leader Choi. So far, I like that guy. But I guess I'll have to see how he'll deal with his newest order.)

Thanks @lollypip.
Watching the first half of the episode I was chuckling and sighing that love has got our serious, steady-on-the-job Soo Yeon to be infected by Yeo Reum's virus of doing what they feel is right, at the moment, instead of their assigned tasks. Granted, he didn't do it to win favours or get attention, but still ... the mentor has imitated the mentee, ignored orders and gone his own way. It was also surprising or possibly unsafe for him, because his arm had become unstable.

I've never liked the character, In Woo from the beginning. He always had that supercilious look and smirk. A good way to know what kind of person he is, can be from checking how the more sensible people respond to him. Seeing that Seo Koon and TL Choi who know him from before, are far from warm towards him, while Soo Yeon seems to loathe him, we can conclude he has been found wanting.

I get the impression that he got in the way of Seo Koon and Choi's relationship in the past and is not in the least sorry about it. Now In Woo goes around goading Seo Koon and has a bee in his bonnet about Soo Yeon 'following him'. I find him distasteful in the way he pokes and pries as if he has a right to know.

I'm glad that Yeo Reum (unlike the early episodes) was able to get past her own needs, get the better of her panic and come out of herself, so as to see to the needs of other passengers. I like that she bothered about Soo Yeon's bag, and that she'd already been putting 2 and 2 together to ask him those questions. It's cute that he lied about the first 2 questions when it was in regard to himself being seen in a good light, but could not or would not lie when it was about how he felt. Does that mean the relationship can take off now? Or that Soo Yeon will tell Yeo Reum (and us) more about his arm and accident? Yes, please! 😃

I just like that in this episode Yeo Reum listened to what she was told. I don't care if you're an employee, rules are rules and you cannot go to the site if youre told not to. I love that SooYeon decided to go for himself-- not because he was allowed but decided to go in secret and break the rules for her (despite him wanting to be under the radar). hmmm Im not explaining it well: to sum up: Yeorum is learning, Sooyeon is taking risks. Rules were broken, but dealt with in a better way.

I dont quite understand the dynamics between Yeo Reum and her mom. She was kicked out of her apartment and had nowhere to go, but her mom has a home to go to. Why couldnt she live there?
I hope In Woo turns out to be a not so bad guy and is just widely misunderstood. He showed some compassion with Yeo Reum which looked genuine. But I dont get his obsession with Soo Yeon's arm. Maybe its guilt overload? There are dramas where there are no bad guys and I hope this is one of them.

It looked like Yeo Reum's mum had to take a train somewhere to get home. Possibly it's not near enough to the airport to enable Yeo Reum to get to work on time.

The airport where I live is far a way from downtown, I used to work at airport and it took me 2 hours to go there if I leave from my house. The transportation is as hard, only certain transportation like bus or train that exclusively head to the airport, or taxi you can ride but they are all a bit expensive. So it is better if you own a car, but it's usually the higher ups who could afford that, or a motorcycle but it's tiring because you need to get around hangar. Fortunately my company provide bus for their employees in several location, but most of them choose to rent house or room near the airport then again it is not really near, the nearest one you still need to walk more than 1 km, and continue with certain transportation lol I just realized it's complicated.

I like how nuanced they are about tackling Sooyeon's disability. It's not wrong how most people with an invisible condition are afraid of not being 'valid' enough' because they straddle between being 'normal' and yet also are clearly haunted by imposter syndrome since they know they aren't- which is what Sooyeon has unfortunately been burdened with by being "gifted" with superpowers he has little control over and doesn't want.

I also enjoy the fact that Seokoon told Inwoo to stay in his lane about Sooyeon's condition- he never had the right to know and had no reason whatsoever to be such an ass about it in the first place. It takes 0.01 seconds to reflect upon your behavior over something that is quite obviously very private.

Overall, love it, I love the bionic braces and I think it'll eventually come in play down the line.

For all those who are afraid of flying the bird strike and engine fire must have been disconcerting. However, please remember the captain saying that he was trained for this. Thanks to my son I happen to know that this is absolutely true. I cannot speak for Airbus but I can speak for all Boeing aircraft: Every single pilot of every single Boeing aircraft is trained in What To Do If I l Lose An Engine.

I do have a major quibble with what I saw however- and I realize that it was done for the visual dramatic effect- but in real life that fire would essentially be out before the plane touched the ground because the very first thing that the Captain of that aircraft would have done is cut off the fuel to that engine. The remaining fuel in the engine itself would have very quickly been consumed. The real life visual would have been the sight of that plane making an awkward landing-perhaps even a bit of a hop or two- with an ugly piece of blackened, useless metal hanging down from the right wing. The fire trucks would still have been there and they still would have put foam on that plane (not water- exploding jet engines are not a good idea) but mostly just as a precaution.

What is accurate- and I hope will calm a few fears- is that the main lesson here is true- in such a situation not only do the pilots and crew know what to do but so do the people on the ground.

Great explanation @oldawyer. I got mad at seeing an engine fire depicted like this. Planes can fly perfectly fine with only one engine too. Also after everyone has observed that the plane landed safely, why act as if the plane has crashed on a mountain and teams are doing search/rescue? I understand the need for dramatic events in a drama (duh), but this is just lazy writing. It is insulting even to people who have seen 1-2 youtube videos about flight safety.

We just have to suspend our disbelief- and realize that it is for dramatic effect- and forgive the writers for occasionally going over the top. It is a fun show and we just have to prepare to cringe together for the sake of enjoying all the good and fun things that the show has.

O/T gripe but first thank you @lollypip for the recaps. I always enjoy your recaps. Now the gripe. Viki is just not getting it together on providing timely subs for FOX BRIDE STAR/ WHERE STARS LAND.
It is available fully subbed through episode 12 at Kocowa.
Why is Viki messing around subbing this drama if it is already being subbed at Kocowa? A possible reason is that Kocowa planned not to make it available to Viki.
