Search Query: WWW: Episode 12

I always thought that a good solid bromance was the best thing a drama could offer, until this show came along. The relationships between the women are so fascinating – one friendship has finally died, another is beginning, and a third is in the process of redefining itself based on the friends as they are and not as they used to be. I’m happy that our heroine has at least one good girlfriend to rely on, especially since other parts of her life are proving difficult to figure out.

 
EPISODE 12 RECAP

Hyun sees Ga-kyung unfairly attacking Ta-mi for leaving a loose end at Unicon, and she shocks Ga-kyung by standing by Ta-mi’s side and saying that she’s starting to think that Ga-kyung was like this all along. Hyun leads Ta-mi away, but she questions whether she did the right thing almost immediately and yells at Ta-mi for looking so pitiful. Ta-mi snaps back that she didn’t ask for Hyun’s help, and Hyun says that she’s the only one allowed to beat up on Ta-mi, ha.

Ga-kyung sends Jin-woo a text, and he drops everything to go to her. She simply asks him to get her out of there, and she takes his hand when he offers it. They sit to watch the sunset, and Ga-kyung says without emotion that it makes her want to die. But she admits that the sunset’s an excuse, as she thinks about the look of disappointment on Hyun’s face.

Ga-kyung says that she wanted to disappear, but instead, the things she cares about are disappearing from her life. Jin-woo asks when it started, and Ga-kyung says she’s not sure, but she’s terrified that her very existence is the cause.

Over a game of golf with President Seo, Chairwoman Jang apologizes again for not being able to get his article on Unicon’s site and for causing trouble for his friend. She says she’s not lobbying because she hasn’t given him anything, and he asks if she’d be interested in lobbying for real.

Ta-mi’s team finally decide which links to remove from the new Barro front page, but Ta-mi says that she feels like they’re missing something. Hyun recalls the advice Brian gave her about making the right impact at the right time, and she throws out the first thing that occurs to her, “Let’s get rid of the real-time ranking.”

She’s expecting the team to push back, so instead she suggests they change it from a static top ten list, to a rolling list that shows one rank at a time. Jenny worries that their index (their ratings) will drop, but Hyun says that the future of web portals isn’t about the index, but about providing a core image.

She looks up Ji-hwan online later, and grins to see tons of articles about him and how popular he’s growing. She asks Jenny what kinds of gifts fans usually send to actor celebrities, and Jenny says that these days they go big, like sending food to the staff of their dramas or take out billboards.

Ta-mi comes home after work to find Mo-gun cleaning her apartment and jokes that she’s got a giant house fairy, hee. She climbs up to ride him piggyback as he finishes vacuuming,and he tells her that he’s got a new project so he won’t be over as often. Ta-mi says casually that he should just bring his work materials to her house and live there.

Mo-gun freezes and asks, “Did you just propose?” Ta-mi says she’s just talking about living together, reminding him that she has no intentions of getting married. Mo-gun admits that he was hoping she liked him enough to change her mind, then quickly changes the subject.

They run errands and stop for an ice cream break,a ad Mo-gun catches Ta-mi heaving a huge sigh. She says she’s dreading talking to Kevin about the main page tomorrow because he’s going to reject her idea, and that she’s not enjoying being a grownup. Mo-gun quips that at least a handsome guy keeps hitting on her, but Ta-mi says that he wants to get married when she doesn’t.

Mo-gun asks when she decided against marriage. She tells him that it was when she realized marriage is the only thing she can’t do on her own.

As Ta-mi predicted, Kevin is against changing the real-time rankings to a scrolling list, but she argues that the rankings will die out eventually because the younger generation doesn’t care what other people find interesting. The head of the Search team tells Kevin that their index will drop, but Ta-mi says that they can use the extra space for advertising.

Surprisingly, Kevin agrees, but in return he wants to get rid of the entire My Homepage service (and its employees) since it’s no longer popular. Ta-mi says they can’t just delete all the history recorded there, but Kevin won’t take no for an answer. Ta-mi tells her team about the decision to remove My Homepage in two months to give people time to back up their data.

The Games link is also being removed from the new main page, mostly because most users have a direct bookmark to their gaming page, and gaming creates its own sales. Joon-soo sulks about it until Ta-mi tells him that games are being bundled with hobbies so the new games will still be featured on the new page, and he perks right up.

Ta-mi is surprised to run into Mo-gun at Barro, as he still hasn’t told her about his new contract, and he enjoys her shocked reaction. He pulls her into the break room and almost kisses her, but Ta-mi hides when they hear people approaching.

Mo-gun blocks the women from going into the break room, promising to make coffee for them. While he does, Ta-mi makes Are you kidding me right now?? faces at him, but he just joins her in her corner and kisses her senseless. One of the ladies asks his opinion on a song, and he stares deeply into Ta-mi’s eyes as he says, “I like it. I really, really like it.”

Hyun sends a coffee truck to the set of What’s Wrong With My Mother-In-Law? from “Seol Ji-hwan’s Fan Club,” and LOL, he’s so confused. Later he calls Hyun to tease her that she’s an entire fan club now, and when he mentions he’s on his way home, Hyun hangs up on him.

She finds him and gets in the same subway car, and she follows him off the train. She’s giddy with excitement when Ji-hwan sees the wall-sized mural of his own face, with a supportive message from “Seol Ji-hwan’s Fan Club.” Ji-hwan suddenly takes off at a run, but he soon comes back to look again, and he almost starts to cry.

He knows it was Hyun so he calls her, and he hears her phone ringing, so she sheepishly comes out of hiding. She says she was watching him from afar like a real fan does, and again at the word “fan,” Ji-hwan’s shoulders slump. Hyun says she just wanted to see his reaction to the mural, but Ji-hwan says that it’s such a huge gift, he can never repay her.

Hyun says she can repay him with his acting, which he’s already doing, looking unsure of herself now. She takes the rose he bought on the way home and says it’s enough. Ji-hwan walks Hyun home, their hands almost touching, and Hyun says happily that she became a successful fan today.

Ji-hwan asks if she’s really no more than a fan. She says she’s been his fan from the beginning, but she struggles to hold her smile steady. Ji-hwan stands outside her building until he sees her lights come on, and he says softly, “If you thought about it, you’d come out. I’m still here waiting.”

When Mo-gun gets home after work, he finds Da-in talking to Sun-woo, who asks why he’s been ghosting Da-in’s invitations to her recital. Sun-woo goes to put some of their music on a thumb drive for her, and Da-in asks Mo-gun if he plans to get married. He says wistfully that he wants to, but that’s why he can’t.

As she leaves, Da-in stops to calm her racing heart. Sun-woo suggests to Mo-gun that they have Da-in play one of the game tracks — he tells Mo-gun to go to her recital and check out her playing, and that it’s only business.

Ta-mi takes the employee-signed petition to Brian to show him how many people at Barro want him to return. Brian says again that resigning was his way of being responsible, so she asks why he called her out.

He tells her that Kevin from Barro is meeting soon with In-kyung and Chairwoman Jang, and Chairwoman Jang’s involvement unsettles him because it means it’s about the government. Ta-mi says she knows someone who can find out what the meeting is about, though she’s not confident of their loyalty.

Michelle, the head of the My Homepage department, asks Hyun to go with her to talk to Kevin. But Hyun says regretfully that it’s not Kevin canceling the service, it’s the fact that times have changed.

She says that Michelle is idealizing the past when they created the service — they were actually very difficult, and Hyun’s health even suffered, and that sometimes things are best left in the past in order to maximize the present.

She finally composes the notice announcing the My Homepage shutdown, and on her way out she runs into Ta-mi, who invites her out for a drink. Hyun is determined to get drunk, and later, Ta-mi deadpans (as she eyeballs the table full of empty soju bottles) that they can’t do this often because getting Hyun drunk is expensive.

Hyun falls asleep on the table so Ta-mi piggybacks her to her place, which is hilarious as Hyun’s feet drag on the ground behind her. They flop onto the bed and Hyun throws a leg over Ta-mi, and she grins when she finds out where she is.

Ta-mi tries to leave to sleep on the sofa, but Hyun pitches a kicking toddler fit and calls Ta-mi “Peanut,” begging her to stay. Ta-mi snaps at her to go to sleep because she’s going to kill her tomorrow. Hyun switches tactics, this time batting her eyelashes at Ta-mi and calling her “unniiii” in a plaintive voice.

Ta-mi caves, and once they’re tucked into bed, Hyun complains that emotions change too fast, and it’s exhausting. Ta-mi says that life goes on regardless. After a long pause, Hyun says that Ta-mi should sign the consent form to allow Ga-kyung into her Unicon email account.

Ta-mi half-complains that Hyun is lying in bed with her and talking about another woman, ha. Hyun rushes to the bathroom to throw up, breaking Ta-mi’s razor in the process but promising to pay her back.

Arriving at Barro in the morning, Ta-mi learns that the announcement about My Homepage being taken down has gone live, and it’s made it onto the real-time rankings. Hyun’s lovingly-worded announcement makes a lot of people at Barro grow emotional as they look back on old photos:

Don’t forget about all the amazing moments in life, and cherish them with all your heart. We’re sorry that [My Homepage] cannot continue to be your lifetime companion. However, we hope My Homepage will be a part of your memory when you look back and think of the past.

Ga-kyung comes to Barro and asks Hyun tentatively if she can say hello, unsure if Hyun would rather ignore her. She asks how Hyun is feeling after the My Homepage announcement, and admits that she was always jealous that Barro offered such a service. Hyun says she both loved and hated it.

Wistfully, Ga-kyung says you can only hate passionately when you love passionately. She asks how much Hyun liked her back in school, hoping it will tell her how much Hyun hates her now. Hyun says she doesn’t hate Ga-kyung and never has, then hurries away.

Ta-mi signs the email consent form, and Ga-kyung says she owes Ta-mi a favor. Deciding to cash it in immediately, Ta-mi asks why Chairwoman Jang is meeting with In-kyung and Kevin, but this is obviously the first Ga-kyung has heard of it. Ta-mi requests that she find out, and Ga-kyung says that they’re even after this.

Jin-woo gets a visit from Ga-kyung’s parents, who have received some documents from him that they don’t understand. He explains that he’s offering half of everything he owns to them and Ga-kyung in the divorce, enough for them to live on without relying on his mother.

Ga-kyung’s mother accuses him of ignoring Ga-kyung for ten years, but he fires back that they ignored her all her life. He tells them firmly to stop using Ga-kyung’s weakness against her, and they hang their heads as Jin-woo asks them not to tell Ga-kyung yet about the division of assets.

Mo-gun goes with Ta-mi to buy a new razor, and he insists on paying (HAHA, he holds her credit card over her head without even stretching). She fusses at him for spending money on her until he says she sounds like his mom, so she just thanks him with a pout.

He asks why Ta-mi seems down, and she sighs that she’s just worried about problems she can’t solve. She thanks Mo-gun for cheering her up, and in return for buying the razor, he says he wants to hear her play piano, pointing to a display of pianos for sale.

She balks, but he knows how to handle her — he says she must be terrible, so she tells him to just watch. The song she plays is simple, but Mo-gun applauds and whoops when she finishes. She rushes him out of there, both of them laughing.

They run into Mo-gun’s birth mother, who asks who Ta-mi is, and Mo-gun nods encouragingly. But Ta-mi says she’s his colleague, and his expression stiffens. Their drive home is awkward and Mo-gun says he’s not staying the night, so Ta-mi asks if they’re really going to act like he’s not upset.

He says he needs time to think, and when Ta-mi asks if she should have said she’s his girlfriend, Mo-gun says wearily that he doesn’t want to fight. He tells Ta-mi that he understands why she said she’s a colleague, but it still hurts.

Mo-gun says that he thinks Ta-mi just wants to avoid complications since they won’t be getting married, and he doesn’t understand why she’s okay with living together but not marriage. Ta-mi explains that if they live together, it’s because they love each other and no other reason, and she doesn’t want their relationship defined by the law.

He argues that those laws also provide security, which Ta-mi doesn’t disagree with, it’s just not what she chooses for herself. She tells Mo-gun that his choice is considered better by default, and the fact that she’s the only one having to explain her position proves it. Mo-gun apologizes for hurting her, but Ta-mi says that they’ll always feel sorry, and goes inside.

Jin-woo stops by the apartment and asks Ga-kyung if he can stay the night on the couch to make sure she doesn’t die, since the sunset tonight was beautiful. He settles in, but he’s obviously uncomfortable, so Ga-kyung lets him sleep next to her in bed.

They remember that they used to share a bed as newlyweds, trying to make it work, though they failed. Jin-woo says they can be more successful with the divorce, but Ga-kyung asks him to wait while she takes care of something first. He doesn’t ask what it is, but she says he’ll know.

On the day of the meeting between Chairwoman Jang, In-kyung, and Kevin, Ga-kyung shows up and surprises them. She sits down and tells them to continue their conversation, then listens with alarm as Chairwoman Jang tells the others that President Seo is concerned about how much money the web portals cost to run. She mentions how much they could save if the were only charges industrial rates for electricity… the catch is the real-time keywords.

Later, Chairwoman Jang confronts Ga-kyung and asks what she plans to do with the information she learned today. Ga-kyung asks if she’s scared, or maybe lonely now that everyone is her enemy and nobody shares her values anymore.

Chairwoman Jang sneers that she’s not fighting the changes of time but watching those who are, like Ga-kyung, who she’s been watching for ten years. She challenges Ga-kyung to try and use today against her, when only one word from her got Ga-kyung suspended before.

Mo-gun goes to Da-in’s recital, but instead of listening to her playing, all he can think about is Ta-mi. Unsurprisingly, Ta-mi is there too, and she sees Mo-gun sitting nearby in the audience. She remembers Da-in talking about her first love, and puts all the clues together.

 
COMMENTS

I really hope Ta-mi doesn’t have a jealous fit over this, mostly because I think she’s better than that, but also because she should know Mo-gun better than that. It’s not his fault if an old classmate still nurses a crush on him, nor does it mean anything for him to attend the recital of a colleague and someone he may wish to work with in the future. I do think Mo-gun knows how Da-in feels about him, which is why he keeps such a careful distance from her, but he’s made no secret of his feelings for Ta-mi, so she has no reason to be jealous.

That said, I will understand if Ta-mi is a little testy about seeing Mo-gun at Da-in’s recital, so long as she gives him a chance to explain and doesn’t fly off the handle at him. They’re in a weird place where they want to take their relationship to the next level, they just disagree on what that level is, so they’re naturally going to be sensitive. The hard part is that they both have good points to back up their position — Mo-gun is correct that marriage offers protections and security that living together doesn’t, but Ta-mi is also right that being together because they want to be, instead of because they have to be, offers its own kind of personal security. She has the right not to want to get married, but Mo-gun isn’t wrong or bad for wanting marriage for himself, especially considering his own family background. The problem, as Ta-mi pointed out, is that there’s no way for both of them to be completely happy. Either Ta-mi caves and they marry, or Mo-gun caves and they don’t, but either way, someone isn’t getting what they want out of life. I really have no idea how, or even if, they can solve this problem and still stay together.

This whole episode was sad, because now even Hyun and Ji-hwan are at an impasse, and it’s a lot harder to figure them out because they haven’t had the hard conversations like Mo-gun and Ta-mi have had. I’m still not sure why Hyun keeps insisting she’s only Ji-hwan’s fan, unless it’s that she doesn’t want to tie him down just when his career is taking off, which is a valid concern in a culture where even a dating rumor can kill a career. I do think she’s aware of his feelings — he hasn’t stated them explicitly, but he also doesn’t hide his disappointment every time she calls herself his fan. I think that Ji-hwan just needs to tell Hyun straight how he feels, and get a straight answer from her, and put all of us out of our misery. I just want all the puppies and kittens to be happy, is that too much to ask?

REMINDER: I know the finale has aired and I’m still way behind, but I’m catching up as quickly as I can. Please be careful not to post spoilers in the comments!

I truly dont know how they are going to solve this hard and realistic impasse that Tami and Morgan have as you are right @lollypip. Either one of them is not going to be happy if the other one gets their way and this isnt a situation where you can find a compromise. Honestly i am tired of them near-breaking up and coming back together. I saw this coming way back in ep 8 when they decided to stay together despite knowing this... lets see how the writers resolve this.

Hyun! Why are you doing this?! I mean later episodes will explain but like why! He likes you. You like him. At least start from there and go forth!

Honestly, I don’t think they can solve it.

Couples can and will compromise on small stuff to make a relationship work. But not on marriage. Especially in a country like Korea when so much expectations are rained down on wives and daughters-in-law. I can’t blame Tami for wanting to keep her independence.

Tammy over-thinks EVERYTHING. She's been dating a hot younger guy for a short while and all she can think of is 'someday' the inevitable breakup will be difficult. And her actions are making that a self-fulfilling prophecy. At some point 'caution' turns into 'self-sabotage'.

I understand where Mo-gun is coming from,
fear of abandonment is something very real and hard to deal with.

If I was in his position, I will pine for marriage as well,
but other than a house and children,
I will say that marriage is not a requirement.

So the solution to the impasse would be Mo-gun recognising that marriage is not necessary.

And seeing how Ta-Mi is fine with living together,
the next big question will be children,
which is a life decision that both sides have to agree on.

Be it adoption or Ta-Mi changing her mind
(children without marriage is a big-no-no)

How Tami handles jung Dain 's crush on Mogun will be certainly very interesting to see. Especially since she has seen first hand how much she likes him.
On Cha Hyun and Seol Ji hwan, I understand his reluctance to tell her how he feels. She claims to be his fan and it would not be fair to her for him to take advantage of his position as a celebrity. Also, the fact that she has given him so much and single handedly saved his career makes him even more hesitant. It's harder to ask for something from someone who has already given you so much. And Cha Hyun's last relationship ended because of infidelity and looking back on the conversation she had with Tami in the car in episode 7, a lot of her previous relationships probably ended the same way. That would make anyone hesitant to start a new relationship. I just hope that Cha Hyun opens her eyes some time soon and realizes how precious he is to her so we can get back to the cuteness.

Cha Hyun's "unnniiiii" is the cutest thing evvaar! I luf it.

My biggest quip with this episode is that we don't get to see why
Ta Mi is so opposed to marriage other than the line about realizing it's the only thing she can't do on her own. Why that's a sticking point for her, I'd love to know. I feel like it's a disservice to her character when we get a peek into the motivation of all the other characters. Heck,
Ji Hwan's love for his dog gets more attention.

I'm still in love with this drama though. It's up there with Misaeng on my drama list.

This is exactly the problem with society. Why is it that if people want to get married, no one questions it, no one asks for their reasoning but if someone says they do not want to get married, suddenly they need to explain themselves and they must apparently have a "backstory"? I don't think Ta Mi should have to justify her reasons for not wanting to get married - marriage is just not something she wants, it could be as simple as that. Is it really that hard to accept or understand? There are plenty of people in this world who feel that marriage is not a path they would like to take, just as there are people who feel like marriage is a goal they would like to achieve. Not everyone wants the same thing. People should feel free to decide what is important to them and how they want to live their own lives without being expected to conform to society's traditional standards.

@coffeeowl, I can see where my comment can be viewed as a call for justification. From my perspective, it was a moment of curiosity and a desire to see more of Ta Mi.

I started writing a list of the other character moments that helped me understand them better when I typed "Hyun has always been that way and that's enough for me" in reference to Hyun jumping into a fray for people she perceives are being taken advantage of. I realized to an extent you were correct. It's enough that Ta Mi has asserted that marriage is not what she desires.

I think my curiosity is peaked because like Ta Mi, I'm an older woman who doesn't want marriage, but navigating your way to a relationship without marriage and kids is like looking for a unicorn.

I had someone like that, quite good looking and all, but I don't feel like getting married, and he got tired of waiting, says that I won't even meet him halfway means I didn't love as deeply, maybe he is right. Broke up after 7 years. It still hurts, but I still appreciate my freedom more.

Hyun is the real definition of a successful fan (with or without romancing our Puppy):
1. She is friends with "her actor"
2. She is financially stable so she can afford gifts like coffee trucks and subway advertisements
3. Her favorite actor walked her home and even gave her a rose

It is frustrating to see Hyun and Ji-hwan like this but we also need to understand her from a respectful fan's perspective. Without Hyun, the Puppy Fan Club won't have a great president!

Maybe becuase she was very active in creating their relationship, she may feel that he is confusing gratitude with affection? Or maybe Hyun as we saw her is someone who loves giving her all without second thought, and don't expect anything in return.

I agree with your assessment of Hyun and Ji-Hwan's relationship. We dont see as much depth as Tami and Mogun's and really thats why they are our OTP.
I am thoroughly enjoying the different opinions of people on forums about Tami and Mogun's precarious situation. Some hates Tami for being too coward to take a leap of faith and some hate Mogun for being too conformist. The writer shook everyone's beliefs about relationships, age and marriage. Dare I say its revolutionary for a drama to explore these kind of scenarios. Maybe I should say it's about time.

Yesss! I love those too! From your post, this episode is more romance heavy than workforce. This show illustrates modern women's challenges and their highs and lows. The Tech part of the story did open my eyes on how much we take things for granted as users. Show just makes us think overall.

While the romances are taking up a big portion of the comments, I just want to commend this show for remaining focused first and foremost on the women and what their doing at work. I personally found this episode a bit weaker since it focused more on the romance(s) and less on the workplace stuff, but there was movement - such as Tami asking Brian to return, or the deal between Tami & Ga-kyung & Ga-kyung infiltrating the meeting with Chairwoman Jang.

I agree so much @greenfields! Way too often dramas seem to forget about the work place halfway through the episode run to purely focus on the relationships and... suddenly you have those CEOs who never seem to be in the office.

I'm so happy that WWW doesn't do that, still slips in work conversations even in the relationship-heavy episodes and never forgets that these men and women have a job to do.

First, that kiss in the pantry was H O T!

Second, our Puppy! The way my heart ached with every word he said in this episode. He wants to approach and tell Hyun how he feels but he also wants to respect her since she’s drawing the line with being a “fan”. It breaks my heart

It wasn’t the center of the episode but I loved the short tribute to My Homepage. It wasn’t My Homepage in my case instead it was Friendster and how it’s gone now. Once in awhile my friends and I talk about how we thought of what shout-out to write, what playlist should we play, the testimonies we wrote on another friends’ profile or something. It reminded me of the good old days.

"I just want all the puppies and kittens to be happy, is that too much to ask?" -> No it's not too much to ask at all.
I'm rooting hard for this ship to sail as well.

I love how Ji Hwan, though obviously disappointed with Hyun keeping her distance, still gave her the space and patiently and silently waited for her to come to him (as he was standing outside the door waiting for her). K-drama is in dire need of heros who actually respect the heroines' wishes and not just follow hard and stalk on them.

This waiting is not as annoying as I felt before. Because think about it, this is a relationship that involves respect and waiting for the other person to open up their heart. This means it takes the time to build a firm foundation to last long and stay strong later. I'm sure Hyun will feel secured with Ji Hwan and they will both value this relationship, which is not that easy to get due to her insecurities and his circumstances.

Anyway, love this couple and thinking about it, all three couples are my favorite. Thankful to have watched a drama that Grace's us with not one, not two but three strong couples.

Now it's time to rewatch all my favorite scenes. I wish someone would make a compilation of Hyun-Hwan and Jiwoo- GaKyung moments with English sub on it. If you see such video, please let me know!

My favourite part in this drama it's the work scenes because these 3 women are the best in their job! They're strong, have good ideas, look forward, stand against bad people, etc.

In their love life, they're kinda the opposite and it's pretty frustrating. I understand and like the subject marriage against no marriage but my issue it's Tammy gave me the feeling she always has to be pushed in this relationship and it makes it exhausting to watch.

Thanks for the recap lollypip!

I love this episode for a couple of reasons:
1) My homepage being discontinued and Hyun’s feelings about it
I think any creators can relate to her having to put to rest something that she put so much effort into it. If at least it was something tangible like a painting, she could keep a copy, but with code, you just press “delete” and that’s it. Years of work completely removed. Poor Hyun.
P.S: also drunk Hyun is now my favourite thing in the world.

2) Tami and Morgan marriage dilemma
I relate to Tami so hard on this issue. Because despite society telling everyone that we have choices (marriage, children, house, ...), there is still an expected path of life. First, you go to college, then you get a job, then you meet someone you love and naturally you will get married. And then you will have many children and live happily ever after. The end and the credits start to roll.
If you follow this, no one will ever question. But if you deviate ever so slightly at any point, here comes the questions. “You guys have been together for X years now. When is the marriage?” “You don’t want children? Wait until you meet the right person” and so on and so on.

At this point I think not giving TaMi backstory is a choice by writers, she is main character and a blank page for viewers to fill with their own experience and stories and it visible in this comment section where we fill the blanks using our life experience, and frankly I don't think TaMi choices need justification spelled for us.

Yay I can finally copy and paste what I thought on this episode 12! Such a nostalgic episode!

++++

One of the many great things about Search:WWW is the depiction of how the internet affects the lives of people in South Korea. This episode is a tribute to what was once such a big influence on the internet; before there was twitter and instagram, there was Cyworld. Almost every citizen in South Korea had an account on this site. Cyworld was a personal blog where an individual could post whatever they wanted. You could see the number of visits you have on your minihompy (short term for Mini Homepage - I see what you did there show, “My Homepage” 😏), you could play background music, people comment on your page, etc. K-Celebs were heavy users of Cyworld as well, and I remember back in the day, I would check out Super Junior members' minihompy too on regular basis. Then twitter came. K-Celebs slowly switched to using this platform that can, not only reach its Korean fans, but also connect to their international fanbase. It serves a great purpose to promote themselves to the rest of the world

As Scarlett stated:

My Homepage wasn't terminated by Kevin. Our era did.

Time changed, and unfortunately Cyworld couldn't keep up with what its users wanted for change. One way or another, I guess Twitter, Instagram, Facebook will be replaced by new platforms too just like how Xanga, MySpace, Cyworld are no where to be found in this day and age.

I’m getting a kick out of Ta mi and Hyun’s grumbling friendship. That bed scene was hilarious in so many ways. As @lollypip said dramaland so far taught us that the best we could expect in dramas would be this kind of relationships between men. So whatever is in her future I am forever grateful to this writer for showing us differently and exploring female friendships in such depth. It is unusual for me to enjoy a drama without a fluffy romance this much (it has to be a Misaeng or a My Ajusshi) so I'm loving this.

Maybe there is a logical explanation for this but my one gripe is that the ages don’t seem to make sense to me to make all the women at high school at the same time. We know Ta Mi is 38, I expect Ga Kyung to be about 5 years older and Hyun to be about that much younger but I guess they want us to believe there’s only a few years at most between each.

They all close in age. I’m gonna need to find that relationship chart again provided by TVN with their ages, but Ta Mi is 38, Scarlett is 37, Ga Gyeong is 39 (or 40 I’m not too sure).

Hwan is 30 and Jin Woo is 40 or 41.

Sorry autocorrect typo - I meant Ji Hwan is 30.

Anyways here’s the relationship chart TVN provided with their ages listed.

Thank you for this, I hadn't seen it. I expected that the show wants us to believe that they are about one year apart but it's the choice of actresses and their styling as well as where they are in their career that gives an impression that they are more apart than the show intended with their youth connection. I cannot imagine a different actress in any of the roles, especially Ga Kyung or Hyun, I am more lukewarm towards Ta Mi, but I cannot be convinced that Hyun is only 2 years younger than Ga Kyung when the latter was talking of becoming a CEO vs. Hyun was hoping to be one in a decade.

In real life the actresses playing Ga Kyung is 43, Ta Mi is 40 and Hyun is 34. No way does Hyun look only a year or two apart with the others.

I remember getting 3/4 the way through 'Misty' when a someone mentioned that Hye-ran was 37. What? That's not right! She's a senior news anchor obviously in her mid-40s! It was as though they had messed up the timeline and hastily had to de-age her to match-up with the other character's prison sentence.

Regarding the TaMi-MoGun-DaIn scenario, I think Ta Mi’s missing earring is going to reappear soon and cause all sorts of misunderstandings/problems.

I love this episode. First and foremost, that kiss was delicious. Must be one of my most favorites in K-dramas. Second, Ta-mi was so cute, when she tried to reached her card in Mo-gun's hand but couldn't since she's so much shorter than him, and when she caved in because of Hyun's cutest "unni ~" 😆 Then I love all the other things such as Hyun's farewell to My Homepage which was basically also her youth, and that Ta-mi spilling the tea about her not wanting marriage is just as valid as other people's wanting it, she shouldn't need to explain. People want different things in life, everyone should know they have multiple choices instead of a default option "one size fits all". Tbh I wish Mo-gun would just move in as Ta-mi suggested and they have a corner of their own without anyone's interference.

There are lots of close female friends in K-dramas but I cannot recall any that depicted 'sexual chemistry' between the pair. I've seen multiple gay (or implied gay) side female characters but they tend to live lonely lives and have one-sided crushes on their straight friends. Our friend Scarlet, in contrast, seems to be a virtual nexus of (implied) pansexuality. She's attracted to who she's attracted to and makes no excuses or concessions.

It's nice to see someone talk about it because there is SOMETHING going on between cha Hyun and GA gyung. I don't know what it is though.

Thank you, LollyPip. This drama has so many coincidences with my life and I am so pleased that has been made so carefully. Your analysis brings many considerations to life. I can't wait to read more from you.
