Mi-rae’s Choice: Episode 3

Our heroine has her hands full as she tries to avoid one suitor while chasing after the other with one vague hint. But that’s no easy balance when all of them are working under one broadcasting station. We learn some more about Shin that suggests that there’s more to him than meets the eye. With so many other factors that threaten the present, it’s no wonder the future’s so uncertain.

EPISODE 3 RECAP

When Se-joo asks if Mi-rae is okay after her bold declaration to prove her worth, she tearfully admits that no—she’s not okay and sick of pretending that she is. He offers a latte in consolation, saying that something sweet is the best remedy in these situations.

Instead, Mi-rae chooses beer as her pick-me-up and is remarkably pragmatic about why she was fired: it was likely because of her lack of skills rather than her age. Deciding to start over from square one, she gets up to finish her first and last project, only to realize her stuff is still at the office.

Shin is surprised to hear that Mi-rae was fired because she was too old, the same reason behind his reassignment. Mi-rae’s presence hardly goes unnoticed during their team meeting, as she searches for her bag on her hands and knees. Then Shin surprises her by giving her the floor to suggest a new feature.

He passes on all of her ideas, including one particular grandpa who hits anybody seeking to cover his story with water. Shin argues that no one’s willing to tune into that, but she insists that they give it a try, even if it means a (literal) splash to the face.

When Shin counters that he hates any attack to his face, she tells him to just admit that he doesn’t want to risk his vain celebrity image. He’s not an anchorman anymore, and if he wants viewers, he has to be willing to “ruin” that image and stubborn pride. Girl has a point there.

It’s a tense few seconds before Shin says that she’s right. He agrees to feature the story and tasks Mi-rae as the staff writer, to everyone’s surprise. Oppa PD is up in arms about the decision, arguing that Mi-rae is too old for the job, to which Shin points out that he himself is, too.

Mi-rae meets with her brother at a nearby restaurant where he directly demands to know how she knows Shin. His eyes grow wide at her answer of “We were in an accident,” momentarily thinking they slept together, and she says exasperatedly it was a car accident.

He all but rolls his eyes at her threat to cut their family ties, and tells her that she’s not up to the task. Mi-rae scoffs at that, saying that he barely lifted a finger to help her earlier—how can he still call himself her brother?

But she soon realizes that it upset him more to see his own little sister being treated like a speck of dust. Aww, you do care.

Taking his hand, she pleads with him for a chance—she’ll do a good job, really—and Oppa reluctantly gives in; however if she screws up, she’ll quit, move out, and marry the guy he chooses for her.

Excited, she agrees without question and the siblings drink to seal the deal.

Thus Mi-rae heads to work with an extra skip in her step. The Jokey PD pays her a few uncomfortable compliments, but thankfully Se-joo steps in to show her to her seat. She gets to work on the feature, and spends her day scrounging up past drafts to use as a reference.

Mi-rae is still busy with work at home, ignoring Ajumma Mi-rae buzzing around her with questions about her progress with Se-joo. Fed up, Ajumma Mi-rae hangs up on the call she’s on, to Mi-rae’s annoyance.

Oppa hears the two fighting, and I love their synchronized reaction to show that everything’s fine. Then it’s great how he tries to explain to the ajumma how guys don’t always want to be called “oppa” from all women, not realizing that Ajumma Mi-rae has been addressing him appropriately this entire time.

Ajumma Mi-rae is alarmed to hear that Shin has mentioned her, and that Mi-rae knows that he’s “that bastard” she was to avoid. Mi-rae says she got laughed at when she confronted Shin about it, and now she reckons that she doesn’t believe a word of Ajumma’s ridiculous claims anymore.

She wants to see clear proof, and when Ajumma Mi-rae can’t give it (thanks to some pesky time-travel restrictions), Mi-rae suggests that she go seek professional help. Realizing that she won’t get through to her younger self, Ajumma Mi-rae agrees not to interfere anymore and suggests they go their separate ways.

Once she’s alone, Ajumma Mi-rae’s heart starts to beat irregularly, and she wonders to herself: “No, this can’t happen already.” Oh, does that mean time-travel also takes a physical toll on the body? That certainly hammers in the “risking one’s life” to a certain degree, doesn’t it?

She then puts in a call, and it’s only now she learns that Yoo-kyung was the other party in the first fated car accident.

The production team arrives on location the next day, and they’re surprised to see their host show up so early. As Shin introduces himself to the grandpa, I love how certain he is that his celebrity appeal will work… and then he gets hit with water again and again and again. It’s hilarious.

That effectively sets off another round of swears from Shin, who demands to know where Mi-rae is. She shows up just then with a puppy and shoves the box of puppy toys in his hands. And that’s what piques the grandpa’s (and his little puppy’s) curiosity.

Meanwhile, Se-joo updates a secret document that evaluates the morning show and staff. Hmm. He nearly gets caught by Jokey PD, who’d rather slack off than do actual work. Once he’s gone, Se-joo makes a note to revise the PD entrance examination. Ha.

The grandpa allows the team for a chat but strictly restrict them from filming. Unbeknownst to him, they do anyway. This time, Shin notes in a kinder voice that the old man’s humble shop contrasts with his rather sizable charitable donations to the disabled persons fund.

He learns that the old man’s disabled son has since passed away, and when the grandpa reminds him not to film them, Shin reveals that they already are. He adds that they would need his permission to broadcast any of this.

Shin echoes the old man’s sentiments, and shares his story about his own sick father. The broadcasting network had promised to pay for the hospital bills if he permitted them to film everything about their poor and penniless lives.

But he had an image to uphold as the class president, so in the end he said no, and his father inevitably passed away. “It as if I killed him myself.”

There’s an genuine and earnest quality in Shin’s voice as he says that’s why he always does any feature to collect donations himself. He knows how painful it is to reopen old scars, but encourages the old man to make his son’s story known to raise awareness so others can donate as well.

That’s how they secure the story, and in the editing room, Mi-rae asks Shin if his childhood story was true. He doesn’t give her a straight answer, but spins her around to say that in broadcasting, one must be able to see the hidden truth in the background.

He invites her to look directly at him to guess whether it was the truth or not. She stares for a minute before she looks away, suddenly growing uncomfortable.

But Shin takes her by the chin to look back at him. “I saw something in your eyes,” he says. “I only see a silhouette, but it’s dark. As if you can fall into it like a black hole.”

Then he leans closer to study her eyes (while she tries to avert her gaze, ha), saying there’s something written on them. He utters, “Ill… fate,” and pushes her away.

Mi-rae lets out an empty laugh at his joke, but then he suddenly rises to stand behind her chair to point at the screen. That’s when she notices his Adam’s apple and the veins his arms, slightly thrown off by their close proximity.

She involuntarily smiles when he ruffles her hair… and she cries at the realization that she hasn’t washed her hair in days.

She tries to shoo away the janitor ajumma as she washes her hair in the sink. She practically jumps out of her skin to see Ajumma Mi-rae, who notes that she sure looked cozy with Shin earlier. At this rate, they may even end up married, “Like me.”

Mi-rae asks why Ajumma didn’t tell her earlier outside in the hallway. Ajumma Mi-rae sadly notes it was a marriage gone wrong before declaring that it’s all a lie anyway.

When Mi-rae presses her for more information, Ajumma Mi-rae wonders why she’s so curious—has she already fallen for Shin? Mi-rae vehemently denies it, but Ajumma Mi-rae knows better. It doesn’t matter anyway, she adds, because fate has already changed its course and Shin will likely end up with Yoo-kyung.

So Mi-rae tries to oh-so-casually ask about Yoo-kyung to her sunbae. Not that she needs an explanation of course since Yoo-kyung waltzes into the office just then (à la evil Mi-shil music from Queen Seon-deok) all smiley and cutesy with the male staffers.

That is, until she comes face-to-face with Mi-rae, and the Evil Queen soundtrack becomes more apparent as her thinly veiled barbs about Mi-rae’s age (in banmal, at that) carry an air of a viper. Ooh, so there’s more to Little Miss Perfect Reporter than her pretty face.

So Mi-rae asks how old Yoo-kyung is then, and she pops up a V-sign: “12!” earning laughs from the men. Then Yoo-kyung swoops over to Shin’s side, taking him by the arm.

Mi-rae can barely stomach the oozing aegyo from Yoo-kyung, and points out to Shin that they seem to be on friendly terms. He asks that Mi-rae be a friend to her since she doesn’t have any close female friends. Oh gee, I wonder why.

Shin says he feels bad because her injuries from their car accident will take a full six months to heal. Mi-rae scoffs in disbelief at that, and walks out in a huff. Mmhm nope, you’re not jealous at all.

It’s actually pretty satisfying to watch Se-joo shoot her an Are you kidding me? look as Yoo-kyung confirms dinner plans. When Yoo-kyung spots his eyes fall upon her legs, she deliberately recrosses them in front of him.

Se-joo covers her with his jacket instead, saying they need to concentrate, but she lets the jacket fall on the floor. Se-joo scoffs and then surprises her by asking, “Do you want to sleep with me?” Well now.

His insinuation that her seduction tactic won’t work on powerless VJ like himself ruffles her feathers, and Yoo-kyung stews silently for another minute until Mi-rae knocks on the door. She doesn’t miss their friendly rapport.

Yoo-kyung wastes no time to confirm whether Mi-rae is just friends with Se-joo, making her plans to pursue him perfectly plain. She asks Mi-rae to keep it a secret.

When Mi-rae hedges, Yoo-kyung pulls the sunbae card, talking down to her in banmal. So Mi-rae lures Yoo-kyung outside just far enough that allows her to speak freely. She gets a few barbs in before Yoo-kyung hopes behind the line to say fine—she’ll speak in jondae to Mi-rae, but she’ll get both boys on her side.

But that means Mi-rae might lose both men to Yoo-kyung, so she rushes to complain to Ajumma Mi-rae (who’s been giving out stock advice to the other ajummas, haha) about the viper reporter girl.

Ajumma Mi-rae asks why she’s seeking her help, still worked up. She softens a minute later and says they need to refocus their efforts on Se-joo. She teaches her the keyword to Se-joo’s heart: “Water.” Then Mi-rae asks, “Do I have to drink it? Spray it?” Ha.

As Se-joo drives Mi-rae home that evening, she racks her brains and uses a water bottle to try out any connection with water. I especially love how she spritzes herself and accidentally sprays Se-joo too.

He asks if she has a few minutes to spare and takes her… to a carwash? Well I suppose there’s water there too. He turns on the stereo and it all seems perfectly romantic… until Mi-rae opens the car window. Ha, is this your idea to incorporate water for him to fall for you?

They end up back at the office to dry off and finish their work, and aww, he even set out candles. Then Se-joo wraps her with a blanket, and Mi-rae insists that they use it together.

Noticing her scar through her shirt (it’s more innocent than it sounds, I promise), Se-joo asks her where it’s from. He says she doesn’t have to tell him, but Mi-rae doesn’t mind. She accidentally got burned while her parents were arguing, she explains, and because she was so young at the time, she naturally thought it was her fault.

Her parents were sorry, but they’ve long since passed away, Mi-rae continues. She’s okay but not okay with it at the same time since she’s aware of people’s judging eyes. When he says it must have, she playfully teases that she’s been found out “because of water.”

Se-joo says she’s fallen into water twice now, and a flashback teaches us that Mi-rae nearly drowned from her moonlit ocean swim. She had been rescued by a patrolman, and Se-joo had watched her sleep peacefully.

Mi-rae asks if he’s heard from Yoo-kyung, who’s told her about her intentions to date Se-joo. She describes Yoo-kyung as that pretty girl guys would easily fall for, and he replies that she’s not his type.

Shin walks by just then to see the two laughing on the couch. And when Mi-rae notices him standing there staring at them, she laughs a little harder next to Se-joo. Do I sense a hint of jealousy or perhaps even, a longing?

Then we see an older gentleman walk into the same time machine, traveling back to 2013. Omo, is this older Shin?! If not (’cause time has really not been a friend to you), then who are you?

We roll the clocks back to the day of the fated car accident, and given how Shin rams into Mi-rae’s car instead of Yoo-kyung’s, this must be the reality that Ajumma Mi-rae remembers.

It’s Mi-rae he visits at the hospital now, and he notes apologetically for adding another scar to the one she already hates. Then Shin turns her face towards him and kisses her… to wake up in his bed, confused. Wait, so that was a dream?

Shin places his fingers to his lips, then breaks open his dictionary to a random page as usual. The second definition of the word “dream” leaves him stunned: “Something you want to realize; a hope or an ideal.”

It weighs on Shin’s mind when he gets to work and Mi-rae rushes into the same elevator. He tugs at her sleeve to confirm his suspicions, and asks how long she’s had that scar. Feeling a bit violated, she gets off in a huff.

The feature story about the grandpa broadcasts over the air as Shin provides the narration Mi-rae wrote. Mi-rae can hardly believe that this is really happening, and Se-joo assures her that it is—hundreds of thousands of viewers are watching the show.

Then after Shin’s signoff, Se-joo shows her the best part: her name in the credits. Mi-rae jumps excitedly and hugs him, something that Shin doesn’t miss.

Having had enough, Shin slams a hand on to the table and shouts: “I told you, no dating team members!’

COMMENTS

How this show continues to surprise me and it’s barely been two weeks. It’s a nice feeling to be taken for the ride, allowing the story to present itself to me. It allows plenty of room for speculation with so many questions that await answers along for new ones to be introduced. I like that we’re getting an intricate weave of different timelines and alternate realities; so while it’s bad for my head (gah, the headaches!) it makes for a potentially rich storyline that can take us anywhere. Almost. Just as long the story doesn’t go all willy-nilly later. *fingers crossed*

How much do I love that Yoo-kyung is actually hateful? She’s the type of evil that you love to hate, and I wondered what kind of second lead we would get from the brief glimpses we got last week. A part of me wondered if she’d be nice, but that makes for such a boring character, so I like the veil of viciousness about her. What also makes it great is that Mi-rae doesn’t take her standing down, and puts her in her place (outside the YBS building, that is). Not only that, both boys regard Yoo-kyung in a platonic way, which is sure to be a big pill for the reporter princess to swallow. Her introduction was a great way to learn everything we need to know about her. I can’t wait to see more of her and how she’ll spice up the place. Ajumma Mi-rae didn’t refer to Yoo-kyung as “that bitch” for no reason, after all.

I like that we got to learn more about Shin in this episode, especially after the first week did a fantastic job of painting him as a target. He knows that Mi-rae is denied a chance to pursue her dream for the same reason why he was ousted, so I appreciated that she gave her the shot to prove herself. I’d like to believe that his childhood story about his father was genuine in both its telling and purpose, not as some tactic to convince an old man to talk. Even back then, he had an image to uphold, and that choice led to such dire consequences. Given his overall serious nature, I want to trust his words of his earnest desire to reveal and share the truth to the rest of the world. And then I can understand his frustration when he’s denied that in the workplace.

While we’re on the topic of Shin, the sequence of the rollback to the fated car accident to the hospital, only to reveal it was just a dream honestly confused me. Because that scene was intercut with our other mysterious time-traveler (who I’ll get to in a minute), I momentarily thought that Shin had his own Future Self giving him advice about Mi-rae; I couldn’t tell what was the past, the present, or the dream until Shin woke up. Apart from that, it’s interesting that a dream awakens his feelings for Mi-rae. It begs the question of whether they were dormant until now and if it didn’t matter particularly when he met Mi-rae since he would be attracted to her anyway. And now that his romantic feelings have opened, it paves the way for Jealous Shin, which, eee!

As for our mysterious time-traveler, the question becomes: if he’s not Shin, then who is he? One possible theory is that he could be Jokey PD, whose flirtatious overtures made me a tad too uncomfortable. The way he looks at his futuristic cell phone (is he watching Ajumma Mi-rae perhaps?) just makes me uneasy. But if he’s not, then there’s a possibility he could be a loan shark since we know that Ajumma Mi-rae isn’t rich and we’ve been given more than one reminder that she risked her life to come back. It’s still rather early to be certain, but let the speculation rounds begin!

On a lighter note, I’ve been enjoying Se-joo more and more with each passing episode. Jung Yong-hwa has a natural presence onscreen, a large improvement from his early days in dramaland. It’s always nice to see idol-actors come into their own as the years pass by, and while I’ll be hard-pressed to buy his cold chaebol side, I’m seriously falling for his nice boy next door character. And from the way Se-joo keeps staring at Mi-rae, I keep thinking that he thinks she might float away like bubbles if he looks away. Oh hell, I’m already drowning.

Thanks for the recap.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before in other posts but whenever I see Mirae and See-joo together, I can't help but think of Kookie on running man and wonder if Yung-hwa teases Eun-hye about him. Or if they will tease Yunghwa about working with her next time he appears on runningman to make Kookie jealous.

Hello??? why he would do that? There are not that close to tease YEH. And YEH is not comfortable to be a guess in Running Man since they will only focus on their scripted love line before in Xman than the real purpose why she went there as a guess. tsk..tsk..

My money is on the new time traveller being some sort of Time Cop - The Wicked Witch of the When has already admitted to breaking the rules of time travel, so I think there's a good chance he's come to track her down for those violations.

this episode gave me butterflies. Best kind of storylines do that. Shin in so nice jealous and all handsy. se joo is sweet, too bad she can't have both lol.

I know it'snot up for debate but after the hype of heirs this drama pulled me in clean. heirs isn't bad but it took me a while to roll into it.

Time Cop sounds just about right because if time travel is as easy for Ahjumma in the future then there must be some sort of restriction and rules etc...

Or else he could be the guy that gave her access to the past and is here to collect, kinda like loansharks dealing with time instead of money loans.

I also agree with gummi's Sejoo staring thing. Yonghwa is pretty good in this drama! I think I'll get 2nd lead syndrome sometime tomorrow :)

Thanks for the recap Dramabeans!

Initially I thought It was time cop, too. But loanshark dealing with time also sounds plausible since his style looks more like gangster than cop. But who knows what the standard haircut for cops is in the future.

I believe that is a Time Cop too. Ajumma Mirae has broken the rules, so his job is to undo what she has done, and let Kim Shin experience that fender-bender with young Mirae in his dream, and awaken his feelings for her that way.

I love Yong Hwa in this drama. Never thought I'd live to write that sentence, but he is really good as SJ so far. And I already have 2nd lead syndrome from ep 1! Becos he is sweet and caring, while KS has been presented as an ass.

We'd like our older selves to give us advice, but I don't want it if it involves anyone who is anything like Ajumma Mirae.

Time Cop was my very first thought, too.
But then I wonder whether that guy travelling back has anything to do with Shin having that dream...?

Haa, I'm already super in love with the drama!
I love the comedy parts and everything, but I'm also really intrigued by the whole time travel affair and all those unanswered questions... (I just hope there're going to be some good answers!)

And, let's face it - I'm already having a severe case of second lead syndrome. Actually Jung Yong-hwa was my very first second lead syndrome in YAB and here it really might get even worse... *sighs*

Yep....I am wondering too about the Time-Cop/other from the Future character. Shin had that dream after that guy when into the time machine back to 2013.

I love time travel dramas -"Queen In-Hyun's Man", "Nine" and now this one! They bring up so many questions to our perceptions and fate/destiny/free choice. Love it!

I am also thrilled with the casting of this drama - each actor is so well chosen for the part - the writing, the directing - so far really well done!

Yay!! I was worried you were no longer recapping it! I LOVE THIS SHOW. The love triangle is soooo engaging. I really hope the ratings improve because the show totally deserves it.

However, I get the feeling that he might not be endgame, and might be destined for yoo kyung (grrrr I don't really like her character coz she comes across as bitchy...we shall see what the future holds, cant wait for next ep already....

I don't think future time traveler is Shin, unless he got got short and chubby in his old age. I'll go with Time Cop of some sort. I do wonder if future Mirae is going to leave soon now.

Shin and Mirae are too great together. This episode sealed the deal for me. I hope YK ends up being a decent person because I don't want to see SJ get his heart broken, but I'm just not shipping him with Mirae. He looks smitten, but she's really trying too hard to force herself. Not that she doesn't like him as a friend, but she just doesn't have the same reaction to him that she has to Shin, as we saw throughout the episode.

Shin remembering things that should have happened, but didn't just confuses me. His jealousy is amusing so I'll wait and see how it goes. I'm really surprised he's falling so quickly and she is as well. Will something stop them (other than future Mirae) soon? I hope not, but it's only episode 3. I hope we don't have 10 more episodes of them denying their feelings, but we still have a lot more to go.

This episode was really great. I'm cautiously optimistic it will continue. With a show like this it can go terribly wrong pretty easily. :D

BUT dang! if Kim Shin is not beginning to shake my second-lead resolve in this episode. Now that we glimpse his earnest, sincere layer behind the facade, I am starting to see why the former-future Mi-Rae fell, loved and married him.

It doesn't help my dilemna that I love both actors equally too!!!

I have no idea WHY it happened, but I'm totally loving that dream thing. And I don't know why, but I have a thing for jealous men... (in dramas, just in dramas!) It's even better when they don't really know what's happening to them themselves, haha.

Akk, I can't waiiiiiit for episode 4 to be subtitled...! >.<

also torn between these two men. At first I definitely preferred Se Joo and it also helped me to choose, that Yong Hwa is also more handsome than the other actor (something to do with the hairdo or the eye-brows?...)
But now that I've seen some cute scenes with Shin + Mi-Rae and that Shin isn't the as**** he seems to be, I don't know...I can't decide...and there's chemistry between these two...Plus, it's obvious that Mi Rae already feels something for him...

I actually squealed out loud at the mysterious time traveller, it just upped this show to a whole new level of cramazing. I'm still hoping that it is Future Shin - although that entire sequence was slightly confusing, I don't think it ruled Future Shin out as a possibility - because how fantastic is the concept of duelling Future Spouses? So excited for the next episode.

But I also had another thought: why didn't Future Mi-rae show Present Mi-rae her scar as proof of identity? The show has made such a big thing of the scar, so there must be something going on there.

That's an excellent point re the scar. I had that thought right away in the first episode. If it's not a deliberate plot point, it's a pretty big dropped ball by the writers.

Not really. Plastic surgery would probably be so advanced that the scar would be completely gone. Probably wouldn't cost her much to have the procedure done so she would only have the scar if she wanted to keep it.

The point is that we're sort of forced to fanwank when we say things like that. I mean, it's a plausible theory, but you just made it up. I think it would have made sense for Present Mirae to at least ask, even if she was told she got surgery later on down the line.

Huh. Well, the drama threw some curveballs at us, which is a good thing! I really wasn't expecting to see someone else in the time-travel portal. It didn't look like it could be Shin height-wise, but maybe I'm just nitpicking. Hope we find out before too long who it is.

I am somewhat confused about the sequence with Shin hitting Mirae and falling for her in the hospital. Was that a dream? A vision of what could have been?

Although the Shin-Mirae budding relationship was sweet, I felt the change was too abrupt from the last episode. It seemed like one minute they were hating on each other -he was particularly obnoxious to her in Episode 2- and here, he's practically mentoring her, getting her job opportunities, bringing her to the interview with the ajhusshi with the disabled dead son. I don't know. If felt like we should have seen something to transition from the hate to budding love.

JYH is very likeable - but he's really headed for friend-zoning in the end, isn't he? Sigh. Second-lead syndrome strikes again.

Grr at Yoo-Kyoung. I think we've all known someone like her, ladies, am I right? Why do men always fall for that type? The phony veneer of sweetness over the viper personality, which women can see right through (that's why that type doesn't have any female friends), seems to fool men so well.

LOL at the scenes of Mirae trying to find the water source that will seduce Se-joo; that was comedy gold. It would be great if they could keep that as a running gag at least into the next episode. Mirae asking Se-joo to help her with something while she's rinsing her hands at the sink . . .inviting him for a swim . . .asking him to help her out at a laundromat (hey, lots of water in a washing machine) . . .

Thanks for the recap!

So true about the water.And all the while she is playing at controlling fate, fate keeps happening in spite of her. The one moment when she let go of trying to control the water issue, that's when a new water issue pops up which totally touches VJ. I really like that view of things. We just have to let go and stop doing and controlling and while we are just being ourselves the universe takes an opportunity to do what we always wanted...without our own effort.

I'm also not liking aegyo girl. And i'm hoping the worldview in this allows for subtle little change in fate. There is the fated relationship -- it seems-- between Shin and Mirae. But i'm not sure VJ is fated for aegyo girl. He's just fated for water girl. And for once i would like some dark horse to pop up and be perfect for second lead guy.

Really great statement about fate happening in spite of her. I had the same feeling last week, when she avoided the first car accident, but ended up having a much worse one with him later on. It will be interesting to see the interplay of fated destiny and attempts to thward the future.

We just want our second lead to be happy. Nothing wrong with that :).

I don't think KS hated MR per se, it just that their meeting was in an unfortunate (or fortunate, take your pick) accident that ruffled KS feathers whenever she was around plus some other circumstances with MR running away from him at the police station and the misunderstanding with ahjumma MR's sort of vaguely accuse him on something that is yet to happen. Furthermore, judging from KS character, even though what we saw of him from the first episode of mostly him being an ass but he was really caring. If he was really an ass right from the start I don't think MR would ended up marrying him for real. Plus MR's plight hits closer to home that KS felt the urge to help her just to prove to others and himself that age is just numbers, not an indication on what you are capable of doing and achieve.

I'm speculating that the show might possibly be giving us sequences of what would of happened had future mi-rae not gone back and changed it.These sequences are going to be in the form of shin's dreams. Might even start including it in Mi-Rae's dreams too, who knows. I like that they're doing that, because i'm also curious how they fell in love in the first place and what really went down.

Having said that, i much prefer this altered reality because both (fated?) couples meet on bad terms. Se Joo and Yoo kyung, who apparently fell in love at first sight, start off on the wrong footing with se joo seeing right through her. Shin and Mi-Rae were obviously enemies upon meeting.
I like this version better because both couples see the other's true side first, and maybe, that changes the dynamic of the relationship, and in turn changes the future.

Feel like that's going to be the most tragic of them all - I'm guessing he gets physically ill and dies early? Because older Mirae jumped when he said he was sick. H m m m mmm.

oh my gosh i'm so torn. I was officilly second lead last week but now i'm with Shin. There's a sweetness and a depth and maturity and a goodness to him that....oh my gosh, VJ/chaebol prince has that as well. What to do? What to do?

It occurs to me that brother may have died and his death may not have anything to do with the marriage. Maybe he died in the course of an assignment and we can see that fate may give folks some wriggle room and allow her to avert that.

I love how Mirae and her brother both made fun of Aegyo in this episode. "Don't call me oppa cause some guys don't like that."

Also love that Shin has his dictionary as his spiritual/fate guide. Synchronicity is guiding him while Future Mirae hs her charts.

Not liking Aegyo girl. If Mirae doesn't marry Chaebol, I want Bae PD to have him. In that way, once again we see fate's wriggleroom.

Glad things are moving along and getting complicated in a good way. thanks so much for the recap.

One of the things that makes this drama so interesting is that both leads are now compelling. It's not going to be another situation where you can't figure out for the life of you why the heroine is picking the first lead.

I kind of think the brother's death (if it's him who dies) has to be connected to Shin, right? Didn't Future Mirae say that he causes the death of the one she loves?

LOL at Mirae's brother telling Future M not to call him Oppa. I thought he was just creeped out by a middle-aged woman doing it.

It's possible that brother's death has something to do with Shin but i guess a big part of me hates it when a drama feels claustrophobic and one feels the writer doesn't give life a chance to breathe. Sometimes these k-dramas are so tightly overwritten that I end up mixing up what i want to see in the drama with what the drama is hinting will happen. I'm just saying Crap can happen to the brother without it having anything to do with Mirae's marital choice. That's what i want. For everything in everyone's life not to revolve around Mirae. But i guess it might go k-drama style and be way interconnected.

I'd rather he get mysterious kdrama illness and die than it have anything to do with Mirae or Shin. They didn't seem to get along in the first place, she said she din't like him, didn't care if he died and FMR's actions just seem like regret more than anything else. Oppa just isn't important or compelling enough to be who she was talking about. Plus I'm still 100% sure she's not being literal.

Thank you, Show, for giving me some sweet OTP moments before I'm falling too deep in second lead syndrome. And thank you for giving us wet Se-joo :)

It's nice to see some scenes from original timeline, but I don't like how they use it as Shin's dream. I thought the time travel was supposed to used 'scientific method', so how can they explain Shin's dream? Don't tell me because of fate. In Nine and QIHM, they use magic as time travel method, so the double memories there were quiet consistent.

Yup, It's fun to hate Yookyung. But since our nice Seju most probably will end up with her, I hope she will redeem herself later.

Good catch!

It is as if TC can't change time, but he can give people the opportunity to FEEL what they would have felt if the timeline hadn't been messed with. Dreams are efficient because the dreamer doesn't have to re-experience EVERYTHING they missed from the TimeV1, just the highlights, and we all remember feelings more accurately than facts.

I love the idea that his apparently awakening feelings (to us) should have already taken root a while back, but he doesn't know that. He's as flummoxed by his intense and sudden awareness of MR as we are.

I'm just so enjoying this drama. So far it's all good. I hope it will keep up this way.
And Yoon Eunhye's acting is so great omg, I can't stop laughing while watching the drama.

What I also like with this drama, it's that I appreciate all of the 4 main leads.
I like Han Chae Ah, and I'm willing to give Yoo Kyung a chance, since she just appeared in the drama. Actually, this character kind of reminds me of Tae Yi Ryung from Master's sun, I didn't like her at first, but with the development of her character I grew to appreciate her and then like her, because she was an enjoyable character. That's a case where a drama successfully dealt with a second lead. I hope this drama can also do that for Yoo kyung's character. So that she won't just be the (classic?) annoying second lead that she "seems" to be for now.

I think I'm ok whether Mirae ends up with Kim shin or Park Sejoo, because Lee Dong Gun is so damn hot haha and Jung Yong Hwa is all cute and lovable. But I've got to admit I'd still prefer Mirae to be with Sejoo for now. (So I'm saying I'm ok but actually I don't know if I am that ok with the idea of Mirae with Kim Shin... >< hahaha)
I'm still waiting for a drama with a main lead ending up with a second lead :D Besides, Sejoo has a lot of potential, he's not just the second guy lead who is here just to be in love with the main girl.

Oh, it would be great if Yoo-kyung would become a second Tae Yi-ryung, cause I actually really liked her! (Yi-ryung, that is)

The main reason why I want to be able to like Yoo-kyung is because I really really want both guys to end up with a nice girl in the end... So far I can't even decide whom I want with whom more, but please, give every guy a decent girl, yes? Pretty please?

Well, and besides that I actually really don't like hating the bitchy second lead, so I'm always grateful when a drama doesn't have her...

I am boarding the 1st lead ship from the start and this episode just stamped it properly on its place. I have always love LDG and has been waiting for his comeback. And I might be a bit (well a lot!!) bias with KS compared to SJ but O can see a lot of growth from KS character and I always rooting for character growth in most dramas I've watched. Plus, MR's feeling has been leaning more on KS side right from the start even though it was SJ that she met first, and it was rather apparent for me to ignore. SJ is all sweet and totally not being write up like the usual cheabol character and it is a harder task not to like him...

I think that KS will have dream sequence that reveal the actual fate that was suppose to happened and I am glad that they give him that. Because he was such at the disadvantage of not knowing anything but getting hated on the person that is suppose to love him. From the bits and pieces that they've shown us there are sides of him that we would found it rather shocking especially the way he treated MR so loving and adoring OMG!! I love the faces he made when he was with her, well in those dream sequence(s) because I think he will have more judging from the preview of the next episode. This layered arch for his character I love it the most.

I am intrigued about the future unknown ahjussi but I think this guy will counter back what ahjumma MR had done to change the future, and for now I think ahjumma MR is blissfully unaware that some is coming and is hot on her trail.

Can't wait for the next episode. I am curious on how SJ and YK relationship will progress because from what I see, fate can't never be change but the path can be paved anew and the same person from before might change into a better person in the future.

Yay, think I've found my next drama crack after Master's Sun!!

Love the set-up so far, and no-one brings on the appealing vulnerability quite like YEH!

Did anyone else get a "Sliding Doors" feeling when they were playing out the "other reality" of Shin colliding with Mi-rae's car? If they're gonna do a lot of "here's Reality A" and "here's Reality B" stuff, I just hope they do it well. It was the only part that felt a tad forced for me this episode - it felt like they were trying to accelerate Shin's romantic feelings. But heck, I'm looking forward to Petty Jealous Shin, so I'm not too bothered :)

It has these moments where the scenes are really choppy and abrupt. It takes time to link them together. I also find it difficult to believe all their relationships because the chemistry isn't very strong for all the pairings.

With that said, the lead actors are still good at what they do, and I love my YEH crack after missing her for so long, so I'll see where this goes. I am also surprised with Yonghwa's maaajor improvement, I no longer cringe whenever he delivers his lines.

I'm also on the fence with this drama but mostly because time-travelling is usually not my thing so if I do watch it, I prefer the time-travelling stuff to happen in as much straight-forward manner as is possible. Sorta like Nine where you change one thing and all the ripple effects are shown clearly. Here, I was a little "what the hell" when they showed Shin dreaming his original alternate timeline. That just doesn't make sense to me...it goes far more into nonsense magical territory rather than time-travelling. I need proper rules! And then the drama goes on to show Shin suddenly developing feelings for Mirae based on dreams?? I loved the Shin-Mirae pairing but to have Shin's feelings predicate on what is imaginary at this point is just hard to swallow. I want to believe in the romance!!! *sigh*

I guess I'll see ep 4 before deciding if I still want to continue this. I like YEH and Lee Dong-gun makes my heart flutter in such wonderful ways but I really really hope the romance between their characters is at the very least, believable. There's nothing like a sucky rom-com in which you can't even believe in the romance of it. The whole thing is then pointless.

I kinda thought the feelings were an adjustment. There is something very Adjustment Bureau meets Groundhog Day/Primer to this so far.

I got his love for her. The dream is from the real reality trying to break into this falsely created "present" that Future Mirae has imposed on it. Everything in this drama feels s if the "real" (accomplished) timeline is trying to exert itself in spite of Future Mirae's plotting.

I don't think she actually had anything to do with Se-joo in the future... I think she just chose him because she knew that he was rich and because she knew a little bit about how he fell in love so she thought she could make him fall in love with Mi-rae. (Well, which worked after all :D)

I mean, if she knew him better, wouldn't she for example know the whole story about how he fell in love and not just the stuff from the tv interview?

I think the reason why ahjumma mirae dont want shin n mirae tog. is because of her oppa. Maybe he got sick and died and they dont have money for hospitsl. Same story as the old man's son. That is why she wants her to marry any rich guy. Another guess is Shin died protecting mirae.

MR's desperation for money is tied to saving someone's life. Maybe there is some super duper expensive but high cure rate treatment that MR failed to get for her loved one.

Now she is bound and determined to change it, even if it means trading off happiness with Shin for it.
Let's face it, she fell hard for Shin for a reason. Getting mad at your spouse later in the marriage is inevitable no matter who he is. She can't want to break off with him because she isn't satisfied with her marriage. It has to go deeper.

I think they mean too old to be a beginning writer. I don't pretend to be an expert on Korean culture, but from what I've seen and heard from Korean friends, it is very stratified and rigid. You start at the bottom and work your way up (unless you're a chaebol). In many cases, people stay with the same company or profession for years as they progress. So I can see how in such a society, it would be frowned-upon for a 32-year-old to take a beginner's position in a new career. Granted, they're probably exaggerating people's reactions to heighten the drama.

In real life, of course, I'd say you should go for it no matter what you age.

I actually think the presence of the ahjusshi could maybe cause the flashback like dream in this alternate reality. Since, and I m going out on a limb here, that ahjusshi is probably here or errr there to set things back to its intended course?

I am quite disappointed with this episode. The storyline is a little too choppy waters for me. Suddenly oppa wants mirae to get married to someone he chooses after threatening her with severing family ties? Seju and mirae at a car wash?(i did love it when mirae sprinkled water on her face and it hit seju).

However..this episode accelerrated my second lead syndrome high up. Seju was sweet and manly when he was concerned about the scar. I melted into chocolate goo. Dark chocolate goo.

Unfortunately..while the first two episodes gave me high hopes of seju winning the girl, this episode kills that hope. Shin showed a softer side (even if it was in his dream) and mirae seemed so into his machoness. Dammit. Get into that sharp suit, seju! and be the powerful man his grandmother wants him to be!

I don't usually ship any couples, but I really want Yonghwa to get the girl for once (although I know he's obviously 2nd lead.... boohoo....)! (I really wanted him to get the gal in YAB, but of course we all know that he wasn't going to...) He has really improved a lot. I didn't used to feel much for his acting, but maybe this role is a good fit, plus he's much improved. Kudos, JYH!

YEH is really nailing her character too, and LDG too. This show has great acting all round. I'm hooked with this ep!

Definitely think future guy is a Time Cop and the reason Shin had his dream was due to Time Cop trying to undo Future Mirae's damage to the timeline. Rooting for Se-Joo all the way, but definitely saw the chemistry between Shin and Mirae in this ep. The fact that she wants him makes me think this will be endgame. The fact that it's so clear this early on is somewhat disappointing though. I was really shipping Se-Joo and Mirae with the first two eps, but it just looks like she's with him because "she should love him" as the first trailers for the drama implied. This just makes me adore the writer of "Dream High" and "I Hear Your Voice" even more. Both dramas were a very pleasant surprise in the romance department giving the viewers first and second male leads that were very likeable. You seriously didn't know who the female lead would wind up with. Just a really good writer to the point I knew Dream High 2 would be a sinking ship before it even aired since that writer wasn't returning.

Am thinking this drama has too many curveballs ahead.

I am hoping.
I think the writers of time travel stories MUST have the end figured out so they can make sure everything fits.

You can't retro fit a future story without it being super noticeable. All the seeds have to be planted early so they sprout at exactly the right time.

I am hoping this is true of this scriptwriter.

Estou gostando bastante desse drama, fazia um tempo que eu não encontrava algo assim tão bom desde Gaksital e Princess Man. Espero que o enredo se mantenha no mesmo ritmo sempre surpreendente.

"Oh hell, I’m already drowning."

Me too. I think I have, for the first time, a major Jung Yong-hwa-as-an-actor-crash. Because of "You're Beatiful" many people had a second lead crush. But in the beginning I always fell for the OTP - so no room for Jung Yong-hwa until .....now.

Oh hell, I’m already drowning.

Episode 3 made me love this drama even more! Actors are great and the chemistry between main characters is awesome! But the last scene of this episode made me JUMP! I watched it like 5 times! Shin being jealous ohh well that was priceless! But Se-Joo can't end up with Yoo-kyung ( she IS a BITCH!! and I hate when they talk using that baby voice it is pathetic) !!!! Do something about it!!! Well I have to say that this drama is addictive!

I only ever got second lead syndrome once, it was with YongHwa in You're Beautiful. I can't believe I'm going down this road again. I'm hoping they'll end up together anyway. I'm really hoping for it, but I don't think it's headed that way... Aish.

Ohhhh! Twist. Well sort of, I expected some kind of time police to crack down on Future Mi-rae. Also, I don't think that was a "dream" in the sense of a k-drama fakeout. I think time cop guy somehow somehow effed the fabric of time/space and those are 2043 Shin's memories. It's somehow leaking into 2013 Shin and I think it will continue. I'm glad because I wanted to see how the original love line progressed.

BUT, Yoo-kyung! If she ends up with Se-joo without some serious re-vamping imma flip tables. We know originally he's head over heels for her, but, WHY? Apparently future Mi-rae hates her too.
