Who Are You–School 2015: Episode 4

Eun-bi sets out in search of answers—though they may only lead to more questions—and Mi-kyung has to make a heart-wrenching choice. At the same time we learn more about Tae-gwang’s family and the circumstances that shaped his childhood. Everyone has a story, it seems, and that story never fails to conceal some sadness at its heart. And though it sometimes feels as though no one understands what you’re going through, everyone grapples with the same question: How do we navigate this strange, often bumpy road we call life?

 
EPISODE 4 RECAP

Eun-bi finds letters and notebooks that Eun-byul left in her room, with messages addressed to her. When she sees the handwriting, Eun-bi finally learns that the person who sent her gifts at the orphanage was actually Eun-byul.

Eun-byul’s diary explains how she came to be adopted, and later to find out that she had a twin. Years ago, when Eun-byul’s first adoption fell apart, Mi-kyung saw her at the orphanage, sitting apart from the other children. Mi-kyung told Eun-byul that she saw her before “at Love’s House Orphanage,” but Eun-byul was too scared to say that she had never been there—the child Mi-kyung saw first was actually Eun-bi.

So that was Eun-byul’s first clue about the existence of her twin, and the cause of her guilt towards Eun-bi. The final words in her journal ask whether, if Eun-byul had known the truth all those years ago, she would have been able to tell Mi-kyung.

Eun-byul’s mom finds a letter waiting for her in the morning. In it, Eun-bi tells the truth about the mistaken identity, thanks Mom for giving her such warm memories, and apologizes. We see her boarding a train bound for Tongyeong.

At the Tongyeong hospital, Eun-bi checks to see if another patient was brought in with her. Checking in with the police, she learns that they found a corpse near where she was rescued. ACK! Please don’t be Eun-byul!!!

Eun-bi visits the funeral home, where she has the surreal experience of seeing her own name on the burial urn. A picture of the younger children from the orphanage rests beside the urn. Eun-bi starts to cry, believing that her twin died to save her.

Yi-an runs through Eun-byul’s neighborhood, clearly hoping for another early-morning stroll. He keeps looking, jumping in front of one poor girl who looks like Eun-byul from behind, but she’s nowhere to be found.

At Tae-gwang’s house, the ahjumma reminds Dad that Tae-gwang’s birthday is coming up in a few days. He tells her to prepare a gift, and that he’ll check his schedule. Father of the Year, he is not.

Teacher Kim addresses the class at school, asking if anyone knows where Eun-byul is. Song-joo looks to Yi-an, but he is just as confused as the rest of them.

Mom goes to Love’s House Orphanage to find out if Eun-bi’s letter was telling the truth. When Mom introduces herself as Song Mi-kyung, the lady in charge of the orphanage recognizes her as the person who sent packages to Eun-bi over the years.

She tells Mom about Eun-bi’s suicide, sparked by the vicious bullying she received at the hands of her classmates. Bewildered by all the contradictory information, Mom asks where Eun-bi’s ashes are interred.

Mom goes to the funeral home, where Eun-bi is still looking through the glass at the urn with her name on it. For a long moment, they look at each other in silence.

Mom addresses Eun-bi as “Eun-byul” at first, not wanting to believe the alternative. Close to tears, Eun-bi says that she thinks this happened because Eun-byul saved her life. It’s too much for Mom to take in, and she sinks to her knees.

“My Eun-byul… My Eun-byul can’t be dead!” she whimpers, and Eun-bi, now crying herself, can offer nothing except her shoulder to cry on. They cling to each other in the hall, grieving for Eun-byul.

After bumming a cigarette on school grounds, Tae-gwang overhears Teacher Kim talking on the phone. He’s asking for consideration from someone, and says that he’s trustworthy—in twelve years, he’s never been in a car accident.

When Teacher Kim hangs up, Tae-gwang asks if anyone knows beforehand whether they’re going to get into an accident, and if Teacher Kim needs money. About to reprimand Tae-gwang for smoking, Teacher Kim thinks better of it and says that he prides himself on keeping a safe distance from students, like the distance between his car and the car in front. Tae-gwang wonders what he’s talking about.

Class President Min-joon informs one of the students that he can take the Level Test to get into his study group (this is the study group presided over by the Mafia Moms, that might kick out Eun-bi because of her “amnesia”). The only other person taking the test is Shi-jin, who seems surprised to hear that her name is on the list.

Shi-jin calls her mother and yells at her (quietly, because she’s in the library) for trying to get her into the study group. She doesn’t think she has a chance at passing, and suspects her mom of placing her close to Min-joon in the hope of pairing them up. Teacher Kim asks Shi-jin what she’s so upset about, and she replies that her mother met a friend who’s having a bad influence on her.

When Tae-gwang comes home, the television is playing an announcement about his mother’s third marriage. Ahjumma hastily turns off the tv and asks if there’s anything Tae-gwang wants to eat for his birthday, but he replies that anything’s fine.

In his room (which has some serious gaming equipment), he looks at an old picture of his parents and broods.

A flashback shows us little Tae-gwang on his birthday, which was also the day his mother was supposed to come back after a long period of filming. He hides behind the table to surprise his parents, but when his mother comes in, the first thing she does is demand a divorce.

She reminds Dad that he didn’t marry her for love, and that Tae-gwang was a mistake. “That’s why I’m being punished now,” Dad replies, and Mom shrieks that he sees her and Tae-gwang as a punishment. That pushes Tae-gwang to the edge—he screams and stands up, startling his parents, and sends the contents of the table crashing to the floor, birthday cake and all.

In the present, Tae-gwang picks at the meal that Ahjumma has made for his birthday. He pushes aside the seaweed soup (traditionally eaten by mothers to restore strength after giving birth, and subsequently by children on their birthdays), saying he doesn’t like it.

On the way to school, Tae-gwang sees Teacher Kim driving the car behind him. He grins devilishly, and then forces the chauffeur to stop abruptly—poor Teacher Kim rear-ends their car, shattering his headlights.

Tae-gwang hams it up when he gets out of the car, clutching his neck and acting hurt. Teacher Kim, good guy that he is, is first and foremost concerned about his student. Tae-gwang says impishly: “This isn’t like you, Teacher. I thought you always maintained a safe distance. Your car and the car in front of you; teacher and student.” He skips away merrily, while Teacher Kim groans in despair at the knowledge that he’s been had.

The chauffeur asks about his insurance, and we learn that the call from earlier was about Teacher Kim’s insurance coverage expiring. Poor guy. Unseen by Teacher Kim, Tae-gwang’s father pulls up in his own car, watching the scene unfold.

Mom is about to drop off Eun-bi back at Love’s House Orphanage. She feels sorry for Eun-bi and the other orphans, who had to work so hard without adults to protect them, and yet grew up so strong. She tells Eun-bi to contact her if she ever needs money or someone to talk to, and Eun-bi thanks her again for taking care of her until she regained her memories.

As Eun-bi starts to walk away, Mom remembers all the moments when Eun-bi seemed happy to have found a mother. She remembers how Eun-bi lay in the hospital bed, repeating the word “Mom” over and over. Eun-bi, too, replays her time as Eun-byul as she heads back to the orphanage.

Mom runs out of the car and hugs Eun-bi from behind. Crying, she asks if they can’t go back to how they were, before Eun-bi regained her memories. She admits that without Eun-byul, she doesn’t know how she will go on. Can’t the two of them live together? Hesitantly, face glistening with tears, Eun-bi returns Mom’s hug.

The swimming coach addresses his team in preparation for an upcoming competition. Yi-an is already slotted for three events, and the coach tells the other athletes to decide amongst themselves who gets the other races.

Once the coach leaves, Yi-an’s Angry Sunbae confronts him again. He’s angry that Yi-an gets all the opportunities to shine, while the rest of the team fights for the scraps. But Yi-an doesn’t fight back; he says calmly that there won’t be any problems in the future, bows and walks away.

Shi-jin meets with her classmate after school to take the Level Test. Time ticks away, and it’s clear that she’s struggling. She eventually finishes, long after her classmate has left.

Song-joo meets with Shi-jin and shows her an application for an acting agency. Song-joo hopes to be scouted and become an actress. Shi-jin is jealous of Song-joo’s determination; she says that it would be nice to have even one thing that she knew she wanted to do with her life.

Yi-an swims laps on his own, pushing his body to its limits. Coach sees him working hard, smiles and leaves without saying anything. But when Yi-an heaves himself out of the pool, he tests his shoulder with a grimace of pain.

Later that day, Yi-an meets his father outside of an auto shop. He insists on carrying a heavy item, and Dad scolds him for over-exerting his body. He even says that Yi-an could injure his shoulder, which makes me think he must have injured himself before. Yi-an promises to succeed, even if only for his father’s sake. He urges Dad not to skip meals.

Mom urges Eun-bi to act comfortably, but she struggles with it. She has to be reminded a few times not to use formal speech, and she offers to stay home from school to look after Mom while she’s ill. But Mom won’t hear of it, and they compromise—she will eat the porridge Eun-bi made, and Eun-bi will take the bus to school.

After donning her school uniform (complete with Eun-byul’s nametag), Eun-bi looks into the mirror. She promises Eun-byul that she will live well, to thank her sister for giving her this chance.

On his way to school, Yi-an sees Eun-bi on the bus. He runs after the bus, and sneaks in to sit behind Eun-bi without her noticing.

Yi-an texts Eun-bi, asking if she was sick or just skipped class. Eun-bi says she skipped, prompting him to ask if she’s really Go Eun-byul. Of course that hits a little too close to home, and Eun-bi freezes. Yi-an watches her, confused, and when she doesn’t reply he reveals that he’s been on the bus the whole time. Eun-bi has a tense moment, but she gets control of herself and jokes with Yi-an the rest of the way to school.

In class, Eun-bi has another stressful moment when Song-joo and Shi-jin notice that her handwriting is different from before. They’re amazed, because they thought that even people who’ve lost their memory retain physical traits through muscle memory. Eun-bi masks her discomfort and leaves the class, needing to pick up a form from the nurse.

In the nurse’s office Tae-gwang is “recovering” from his car accident, though he assures the nurse he doesn’t need to go to the hospital—checking his watch, he says he should be fine in about two hours. Not a bad way to skip class, honestly. When the nurse leaves the office Tae-gwang looks at his smartphone, reading a news article about his mother.

Eun-bi enters the nurse’s office and sees Tae-gwang in a hospital bed. She sits down on a neighboring bed and asks if he has recovered after his accident. At first Tae-gwang is surly, using the accident as an excuse not to talk to her.

But Eun-bi remains cheerful, saying that since she never talked to Tae-gwang before her amnesia, he must not know anything about her. “You don’t know anything about me, and I don’t know anything about you,” she reflects. “It’s nice.”

Turning to Tae-gwang, Eun-bi offers to tell him a secret. “Don’t believe anything I tell you,” she warns him before sharing her secret. “I’m a liar.” Then she tells Tae-gwang that her name is Go Eun-byul. Tae-gwang thinks she’s gone crazy from all her studying, but he still responds by showing her the picture of her mother. “Do you know top star Song Hee-yeong?” he asks. “She’s my mother.”

Teacher Kim goes to Director Gong’s office—he seems to know Tae-gwang’s father personally, calling him “Teacher,” and he also seems stiffly uncomfortable. Director Gong offers to pay for any damages to his car, but Teacher Kim cuts him off quickly and says he’ll take care of it himself.

“I know you were disappointed in me-“ Director Gong begins, and though Teacher Kim denies it, his face says otherwise. He says that he treats all of the students in his class equally, and that teaching to him is like any other job that pays the bills. Hmm… could something have happened between the two men that caused Teacher Kim to adopt his impersonal “safe distance” philosophy?

Teacher Kim and Eun-bi walk past each other on the stairs, when they each receive a text message at the same time. Both texts are from the mysterious Jung Soo-in, containing a cryptic message about “good memories.” Eun-bi asks Teacher Kim about Soo-in, and he exhibits a classic case of Shifty Eyes when he says it’s difficult to remember all the students’ names.

In class, students gossip about actress Song Hee-yeong’s third marriage. They’ve heard the rumor about her having once been married to Director Gong, and how she received a large settlement even after marrying another rich man.

Class bully Ki-tae jokes that their gym is half the size it was supposed to be as a result of the divorce, and now Tae-gwang has had enough. He gets up, muttering about them being too loud, and kicks Ki-tae out of his chair to the floor.

Tae-gwang takes a vicious beating from Ki-tae. One of the students runs for a teacher, but in the meantime Ki-tae bloodies up Tae-gwang pretty badly. Each blow only seems to fuel Tae-gwang’s anger, though, and he even manages to laugh as he’s getting hit.

Eun-bi takes his arm and tries to urge him to stop, but he throws her away without even looking, not noticing when she falls to the ground and hurts her elbow. When Yi-an enters the classroom and sees Eun-bi hurt, he jumps in between Ki-tae and Tae-gwang. At that point the dean arrives, putting an end to the violence.

A little calmer now, Tae-gwang sees what he did to Eun-bi, and his face fills with remorse. But Yi-an pulls him back when he tries to go to her, and the dean leads Tae-gwang and Ki-tae away. Yi-an leans down next to Eun-bi, checking to see if she’s alright.

Eun-bi walks through the courtyard with Song-joo and Shi-jin, who tell her she’s lucky to be okay after interfering in Ki-tae’s fight. Song-joo then says that Eun-bi has been different since the class trip, and shares what the girls know about her supposedly fighting with some guy. Eun-bi remembers what Yi-an said about dropping by Tongyeong briefly, but neither Song-joo nor Shi-jin know about that.

Later that day, Eun-bi meets with Yi-an and asks for more details about his detour to Tongyeong. He lies that he didn’t meet her, and keeps silent with difficulty when she wonders if her fight with the “strange man” resulted in the wound on Eun-byul’s neck.

Tae-gwang is playing video games at home, face covered in scrapes and bruises, when his father gets home. Dad disconnects the game, looking furious.

Dad tells Tae-gwang to prepare for study abroad, to which Tae-gwang fires back that he could just go back to the mental hospital for a few months. Dad thinks that not seeing each other might be the best course of action, while Tae-gwang thinks Dad just wants to get him out of sight.

Tae-gwang changes the subject, asking if they can’t have dinner together—him, Dad, and Mom—to celebrate his birthday. He’ll even congratulate Mom on her third marriage. His father retorts that he is just like his mother, expressing her emotions in ways that don’t make sense. When Tae-gwang wonders if anyone living with his father would turn out the way he had, Dad slaps him.

“Think about what I must have seen and heard as I grew up,” Tae-gwang says through gritted teeth, “that made me turn out this way.” He walks out of the room, leaving his father alone.

Tae-gwang rides a segue (or some automated scooter-thing?) in the middle of the street. He screams his frustration into the night, heedless of the cars that follow behind him, honking.

Meanwhile, Yi-an looks at the medal he meant to give Eun-byul, wondering if he’ll regret giving it to her now and telling the truth. He makes his decision and texts Eun-bi, asking to meet—we see that her phone is still at home, on her dresser.

Eun-bi is out for a walk, and she passes Tae-gwang on the bridge in her neighborhood. He turns back, and their eyes meet. Instead of apologizing for hurting her during his fight, he snorts that she shouldn’t stick her nose in other people’s business.

When Eun-bi tells him not to be concerned, he asks if she means the opposite—after all, she told him before that she was a liar. “I really want to be alone,” Tae-gwang says. When Eun-bi agrees and begins to walk away, he shouts out after in frustration: “You really don’t understand people’s words, do you?!”

Eun-bi turns back, and the hurt, lost look in Tae-gwang’s eyes really kills me. Eun-bi looks at him, then smiles in understanding.

Yi-an is running to meet with Eun-bi, when he sees her on the bridge. Tae-gwang is showing her how to use his segue, and the two of them are laughing and enjoying each other’s company. Yi-an looks down at the medal in his hand, and sighs.

The next morning, Teacher Kim announces to the class that a transfer student has arrived. Of course, who should it be but Kang So-young, the bully from Tongyeong who originally drove Eun-bi to attempt suicide.

So-young is greeted by an approving chorus from the boys in the class, and begins her self-introduction. She asks the class to look after her, sees Eun-bi—and freezes. The two girls lock gazes, shocked.

 
COMMENTS

Oh, my. This episode felt like it was taking its time, working through Eun-bi’s dilemma and Tae-gwang’s family situation deliberately and without undue haste, but we certainly ended with a bang! With So-young entering the classroom and Eun-bi remembering who she is and what she did, there is no telling what will happen in the future.

I hope it involves a little cosmic justice, of course. With friends at her side, Eun-bi is far from the isolated loner who was so vulnerable to So-young’s calculated cruelty. At the same time, it won’t be easy for the victim of such lasting trauma to confront her abuser. And as much as I want So-young to experience what it feels like to be isolated, such a course of revenge might pull Eun-bi down a darker path, tempting her to turn into another version of So-young.

The slightly slower pace allowed the emotional beats—like Mi-kyung’s anguish at the Love’s House orphanage—to land with full force, but it didn’t feel like it dragged at all. I particularly liked how the story developed Tae-gwang’s character even as it followed Eun-bi’s difficult choices, showing how the two start to mean more and more to each other as time goes on.

It was great to see how Eun-bi turns to Tae-gwang because he has no experience with her “pre-amnesia,” and so he isn’t constantly comparing her to how she was before. She has to keep up her pretense, and he has a whole host of defensive mechanisms to keep anyone from getting close enough to hurt him, yet somehow that short scene in the nurse’s office allowed them both to be more honest with each other than they can be with anyone else.

And the scene at the very end, when Tae-gwang doesn’t know how to apologize or ask for help, was beautiful. Eun-bi has always been the kind of person to look after others, even when she has trouble protecting herself, and it’s fascinating seeing Tae-gwang come to confide in her more and more, without even realizing.

It was also nice to see that we still get a focus on everyday issues faced by high school students the world over. Even with abusive rich dads and secret twins running around, there was time for Shi-jin’s more modest dilemma of what she wants to do with her life.

Bullying, divorce, living with mental illness, the question of how to live a meaningful life once you leave the uniforms and timetables of high school—all these issues are real and important, and I love that we can have a plot that is so unabashedly dramatic without losing sight of the more mundane (but no less important) battles that make up most of our lives.

Whether Eun-byul is dead or not (did anyone else think that explanation is a little too neat?), her central mystery—which seems to include Soo-in, whoever she might be—still remains. But even that will probably have to wait a while, until we see how Eun-bi handles having her nemesis once again in the same class. This show’s secondary title—“Who Are You”—doesn’t only refer to the obvious difficulty of telling twins apart; I think it’s also a nod to the choices we face while growing up, the choices that ultimately make us who we are. Who will Eun-bi choose to become? I can’t wait to find out!

I hope So young does too. I mean, that's the point of her existence, right? Threatening and bullying Eun bi, so bringing greater development to friendship and romance.

Can't wait to see the two knights to her rescue.

I think that's developing but I don't want them to get together! Love Yi An's sweetness. I want him to get what he wants. Maybe Eun Byul if she's not dead after all.
But i highly doubt the death is unreal, since it'll be hard to film the twins meeting (something that is inevitable she be alive.)

Actually, it's quite easy to have both the girls in one scene. The Disney show Liv and Maddie does it every episode because the main actress is both twin girls. All you need is a body doubke and a split screen and it is convincing and simple enough.

Yeah, me too. I thought that Eun-Byul might actually not surfacing on purpose to let her sister get to know the joys of a happy school day. And the other corpse might just be another suicide. I do hope Eun-Byul isn't dead. That would be sooo depressing

Omg great episode! I didn't expect her to get her memories back so quickly and I'm glad that they didn't drag out the amnesia scenario like in every other kdramas. I really don't think that Eunbyul is dead because Eunbi had the scarf with her when she was at the hospital. And Eunbyul obviously pulled her out of the water so how could she have died? I think this aspect of the mystery will be developed more throughout the series.

I really like the discussion about mental health, bullying, and living a meaningful life. And I wonder how much Eunbi's character will develop as she faces that bully.

Btw is it just me or is the chemistry between KSH and Sungjae off the charts?

I somehow think that it would make sense for Eun-byul to be dead:

- The story was about Eun-bi from the beginning, Eun-byul was just the foil for Eun-bi during the setup stage of the show.
- Eun-bi taking over Eun-byul's identity is pretty much the whole premise of the drama. Eun-byul is not necessary for the whole thing anymore.

Yeah it would make sense but there are just too many unanswered questions... like the scarf ending up with Eunbi, how Eunbyul came to her death (she was able to save Eunbi so she should have been okay), and what happened to her between when she went missing and Eunbi decided to jump. For all of these questions to be answered, I would think that Eunbyul would need to be alive.

Well the scarf fell off and stuff in the water, I remember the original drowning scene and taking note of the floating scarf. Our twin could have fallen back in the water or been killed after - that's certainly part of the mystery they have going. But I don't see how she could be alive when clearly a body was found and cremated and funeral stuff happened.

Or the twin might have just taken the chance to disappear - there seemed to be other issues in play on Eun Byul's side.

But if she disappeared how did they find a body and identify it as her?

I'm afraid Eun byul is dead because it would be odd for yi an ending up with eun bi. And eun byul is responsible for all the unanswered questions. She should be alive to ease our minds. Lmao

Eun Byul's screaming in the toilet is still a mystery tho. I really wonder what happened at that time.
BTW, I'm sorry to the male lead coz so far I enjoyed GTK's acting & story more than HYA. KSH has better chemistry with Sungjae imo

Just a guess, but I am thinking that Eun Byul has Soo-Ins phone and is not really dead - that perhaps Soo-In was killed or committed suicide from bullying, of which she may have been a part of.

I don't think Eun Bi recovered all of her memories. It's because what's strange is that when she woke up in the hospital, she had a wound on her forehead. Someone who jumped into the river to commit suicide and then got saved from her sister would not have such a wound on her forehead. I don't think Eun Byul died from just saving Eun Bi from drowning. I don't see how that can happen. I think something else happened before Eun Bi lost her memories. I just don't know what. There's just so many possibilities. Gah! My brain hurts!

I don't think Eun Byul is dead either, especially for the reason you mentioned. I don't know how she could've died if she was the one who saved Eun Bi, plus it doesn't make sense for Eun Bi to have the scarf if she was dead. Another thing, isn't there a picture of both of them together on one of the promotional pictures? Maybe it's a stretch, but it gets me thinking they end up reuniting.

Ooh thank you so much for the long-waited recap! I was starting to think that you guys have given up on recaping this...

Anyway, I think if Eunbi is gonna continue living in Seoul, I want her to live as herself and not her sister. Putting up all that pretense is tiring. But I really love that Eunbi and Taekwang ended having something in common and the way they trust each other!

It's kinda funny that it's the daughter Shijin who scolds about her mom having bad friends and not the other way around in real life. I am also a teen and I agree with her about not knowing what to be when you grow up...

So much mystery left! Can't wait for next episode!!! Kim Sohyun is doing a great job!

I think it would be too difficult for Eun Bi to live as herself in Seoul... I'm sure not everyone in Eun Byul's life would agree with that. Imagine if your best friend suddenly told you she's not the girl you've known your whole life, but she's still going to live her life?
I also love her relationship with Tae Kwang, but I don't know, the way she's so comfortable with Yi Ahn makes me happy too. I guess we'll see... (Or more like I'll see, since I'm watching this so late.

I don't think Eunbyul is dead. For someone as important as her, didn't they should at least show Eunbyul's corpse? Because the police might have mistaken the identity of the corpse.

I really like how Eunbi and Taekwang share their secret with each other. (Even they both didn't believe it).

I also love how Eunbi is protecting sad loner Taekwang and accompany him on his birthday. And when Soyoung transferred to their school, I'm hoping that Taekwang will protect Eunbi in return.

I don't think Eun Byul is dead either! It's a film rule that if we don't see a body, the character isn't dead yet. Plus I agree with purplecow, Eun Byul dying while saving her twin is too simple an explaination.

What if the both of them planned all of this? I love that the show is keeping us guessing.

Btw KSH is obviously awesome and really carrying the show, but i'm impressed with Sungjae too!

I'm not sure how they would mistaken the identity of the corpse unless it was hurt so badly that the face was unrecognizable, but I see where you're getting at. I also believe that Eun Byul is alive.

I thought it was funny that Eun Bi told a lie (My name is Go Eun Byul) but Tae Kwang believed it, and Tae Kwang told the truth (my mother is this actress) but Eun Bi probably thought he was kidding. Ironic.

I hadn't thought about Tae Kwang defending and protecting Eun Bi from So Young, but I definitely love that idea. No doubt he would, plus her two best friends and Yi Ahn. It's so satisfying to know that Eun Bi is so supported this time around. She deserved so much better anyways.

The story is getting more and more interesting, I love how each character has their own story. I can't wait how Song Joo and Eun Byul background unfold, since apparently Song Joo is the one with 'no problem' at all right now.

And Kim So Hyun, may I say that I'm waw-ed by her? The girl get her meat deliciously and prepare it neatly. I can't wait for the next episode. Monday! Please come quickly

Many dramas tend to neglect to tell every backstory, but I do hope they delve deeper into Song Joo's. You're right, she's the only character that seems to have no problems, I wonder what she's dealing with under the surface.

Thanks for the recap, purplecow! Lots of interesting development in this ep!

I liked how we found out Eunbyul and Taegwang's back stories. I didn't expect for the twin mix-up from years ago. No wonder Eunbyul feels guilty about Eunbi and decides to send her all these gifts while growing up and even saving her life. She mid have felt that if she hadn't kept quiet back then, Eunbi would never have had such a miserable life being bullied; instead, she would have been enjoying a wonderful life with the loving mom. At this point, I will assume Eunbyul's dead if the police found a corpse and it's been ID-ed, meaning she looked the same as Eunbi to be presumed to be her. I'm still curious about what happened to Eunbyul's neck, that scream in the bathroom, and who this mysterious Sooin girl is.

It's heartbreaking to see what Taegwang has gone through and on his birthday no less when he was a child. Glad that he can open up to Eunbi now and they can be comfortable to start on a clean slate. Totally understandable that Eunbi warms up to him since she doesn't need to pretend to be Eunbyul.

I'm happy that the mom decides to keep Eunbi by her side after finding out the truth. From what we know, Eunbyul was a bit cold in personality towards mom, so she never did those things Eunbi did while she had amnesia, such as jumping into bed or having those mother-daughter bonding times. So, it was touching to see that despite the short time they spent together, the mom didn't wanna let her go. Even though she requested for Eunbi to live as Eunbyul, I think she will come to care for her as her own person. Maybe she will later discover that the girl she originally saw at Love's House was actually Eunbi.

Teacher Kim must have an intriguing back story as well, what with his ties with Taegwang's dad and Sooin.

The Yian/Eunbi bus scene was cute. He's definitely the first one to pick up the change in her. So, I hope he can get to know this new her and still like her when he eventually learns the truth. For now, I hope he can at least fess up that he had been in Tongyeong to see her. I also like Yian's relationship with his dad. Hope his shoulder pain/injury is not severe enough to affect his swimming.

You took the words right out of my mouth. Hahaha

I don't want to assume that Eunbyul's dead, since there are still questions left unanswered (her neck wound, the bathroom incident and where she was at that point up to the time she saved Eunbi). And how would she end up dead right after saving her and leaving Eunbi the scarf?

With all the events happening, I hope this would be the chance for Eunbi to stand up for herself against the bully. I know it's not easy but I hope she could do it (she has friends to back her upㅡand I hope they wouldn't leave her side when they learn the truth) and also correct the wrong things Eunbyul MAY have done (this mystery with Sooin is driving me insane).

Hi Bree! Heehee~

I agree there are still a lot of unanswered questions about Eunbyul, so I hope there will be more clues in the upcoming episodes. Maybe Eunbi will help uncover these clues now that she's seen the strange text from Sooin.

Yes! I really hope that Eunbi can stand up against the bully. She's already thankful for Eunbyul's sacrifice in saving her and vowed to make her unni proud. So, I hope she can be strong enough to not let the bully know she recognizes her. She should just play the role of Eunbyul for now since she's got her friends here to back her up. For sure, Yian and Taegwang would protect her. And yes, I think it would be great if Eunbi ends up righting the wrongs Eunbyul had done. Just like the situation with the girl who was like the wallet to them, I hope she can work things out with Sooin (if she isn't dead already).

I had seen a previous theory that Eun Byul felt guilty about something... and now we know why. Personally, I hadn't seen this coming either. It's a interesting twist.

As for Eun Byul's mom deciding to let Eun Bi continue living with her, I feel like it's a little bit unrealistic. I don't know, I guess I can understand why she's doing it, but isn't it a little strange to know the girl living in your house is living the life of your supposedly dead daughter? I'm glad the mom is so welcoming, but it's just a little weird.

I'm excited to find out who this Soo In girl is, which I'm sure we all are. There are so many unanswered questions and it's only been four episodes, it's hard to think about all at once.

I still ship Yi Ahn with Eun Bi more than Tae Kwang with Eun Bi. Maybe I just have a soft spot for Nam Joo Hyuk, but I do love Yi Ahn's relationship with Eun Bi. He seems like he would do anything to protect her and that he would always be by her side. Maybe it's just because we haven't seen too much of Tae Kwang's relationship with Eun Bi.

Is it just me or does this feel like a sort of a 'prince and the pauper' story line. Also, Eun Byul was trying to contact Eun Bi before that whole incident happened. I wonder if there's something Eun Bi's memory is leaving out. I want to say I believe Eun Byul is dead, because they said so but Byul left so many mysteries behind that I won't believe it happened till there's solid proof. That bruise (injury?) on her neck was from...?
I'm not sure which ship I'm on yet, I'm thoroughly enjoying both though.

I don't think Eun Bi's memory is leaving something out, because she didn't know about Eun Byul before her memory loss either. I'd like to know why Eun Byul was trying to contact Eun Bi too, but I'm sure we'll find out later.

While I am enjoying this show, I find Mom's request/the premise of the show to be so messy. I understand why she does it but it sucks that Eun Bi has to live a lie. I keep thinking of the fall out when everyone finds out that she isn't Eun Byul.
Ugh, this drama is do heartbreaking on different levels... I'm interested to see what will happen now that her former bully is back in her life. I hope Eun Bi will be able to stand up for herself. I'm a also looking forward to uncovering the mysteries of Eun Byul's life.

You're the first person I've seen to have the same opinion as me about Mom... it's so strange how she's letting Eun Bi live her daughter's life like that. I'm not sure how the fallout will be once everyone finds out she's not Eun Byul. I feel like the impact won't be as huge, considering it might be hard to believe she's not Eun Byul when they look exactly the same.

I also hope Eun Bi will stand up for herself. She'll probably be more motivated to do it with so many people standing by her side. It frustrated me so much in the first few episodes when she just let So Young and her entourage bully her so terribly.

I think a lot of people are shipping TG and Eun Bi is because they have similar backgrounds.
TG coming from a broken home and is bullied by the boys, Eun Bi being an orphan and bullied by the girls from her old school. Also their chemistry is undeniable.
I'm not sure if their chemistry will lead into something romantic but I am loving their blossoming friendship.

OHHHH ! finally a recapp haha just coming here to read your recap and seeing people's opinion on the comment boxx ! haha

i think that eun byul is really dead , because i mean how could they possibly state the corpse as 'Eun-bi' if they couldnt recognize her at the very first place , it doesnt make senseee ... and if they recognized the body as eunbi through dna test , then it should be found out that the body is actually eunbyul !
i kinda hate the mother , because she just keeps treating eunbi as eunbyul , and not accepting her the way she isss urghhh
so confused which one to shipppp! i love yi an's puppy loveee ah so cuteee ! and i think he's totally suspecting aha !
on the other hand , i found eunbi and TG have superb chemistry , and with TG eunbi can be honesttttt oh i just love themmm !

Things to note about k-dramas:
Nobody ever contacts the police about anything ever. .hardly.
On the rare occasions that they do, the police are totally incompetent.
Nobody ever does a DNA test unless it is to prove that someone is a lost chaebol heir, so any body found could have been anyone.

We have seen no flashbacks as to when the mother ID'd the body, in fact no info at all on how she was identified - so I think this is a red herring.

Why must Fate be so cruel to Eun Bi? She was starting a new life with a new mom, new school, new friends, and potentially new boyfriend (take your pick), but her past refuses to let go. I hate So Young. Why did she move back to Seoul? Just stay in Tongyeong with your good-for-nothing friends. At least she has no friends in Segang High, so she'll have no one to hang out with and have to eat lunch alone. My biggest wish is she becomes an outcast. I'm terrified she'll make Eun Bi's life hell. Eun Bi needs to hold out for as long as possible and live and breathe as Eun Byul. Don't let anyone in on her secret. Thank goodness Song Joo is a badass and has no qualms about confronting anyone who puts down her best friend (I cheered when she flipped that gossip girl's lunch tray over), plus Eun Bi has two white knights waiting in the wings. I squeed during Yi An's text conversation from the bus seat behind her. He better not abandon her when he finds out the truth or else he's dead to me. Tae Gwang and Eun Bi's opposite game was adorable ("Does that really mean be more concerned about you?"). It's like getting to tell each other secrets without actually telling them.

I'm still holding out hope that Eun Byul is not dead. Did the police not find it strange that the corpse found right next to Eun Bi looked exactly like her? If so, how did they determine which one was Eun Byul to call her mom that her daughter was found and which one was Eun Bi to call the orphanage director to claim her body? Speaking of death, are we sure Jung Soo In is still alive? Because my theory is Soo In was an outcast a la Young Eun and subsequently committed suicide. Shi Jin was Soo In's childhood friend, so she becomes close with Eun Byul to get revenge, and the text messages Eun Byul and Teacher Kim receive are from Shi Jin posing as Soo In. In reference to his cryptic conversation with the director, Teacher Kim probably tried to stop Soo In's bullying, but the director told him to turn a blind eye, which he continues to live by till this day.

Thanks for the recap, purplecow!

I think they shouldnt have assumed Eun Byul's identity. Why couldn't they just have declared her dead and let everyone mourn her properly? It is disrespectful to the dead and Eunbi. Now she has to live a lie. It wasn't as if the mom could not adopt Eunbi... she is an orphan after all.

I loved the bridge scene. I felt sorry for the swimmer but... I think Eunbi really matches Taegwang really well.

Because that's the premise of the show.

They went out of their way to maneuver Eun-bi into a position where the option of switching her identity with Eun-byul appears even remotely reasonable.

When you are a writer, and you come up with a cool crazy idea, I think ethical considerations are the last thing on your mind.

i dunno but i felt sad when eun byul's mom begged that eun bi throw her identity and live as eun byul.

The mother is a bit selfish .... while eun bi has too much selfless in her bonesss... soooo I conclude that taek gwang and eun bi will beeeee the ending ship of this story :p lol i just cant see yi han to just let go her puppy love for eun byul because i dunno about all of you but itssss verrryyyy hard to let go your first love. hahaha

There is a song on the OST that I think is really fitting but a bit unintentionally so.

The song is called Reset and there are parts she sings "I wanna reset, I wanna reset, ..." but I keep hearing "I want a recess, I want a recess,..." which is so fitting to the setting :P (I didn't even realize it was different until I saw the lyrics).

I mentioned in the OT but...I really wish our resident bully hadn't shown up so quickly. I wanted her to have some moments to adjust and figure things out before dealing with all that. Not to mention I can't stomach large amounts of bullying. I'm sort of worried I'm going to end up tuning out of the show because of it.

I definitely have SLS and I'm sad because originally I really thought the two guys would be best suited for different twins. I tend to route for the wounded but nice guys in these shows though. However, I think Yian is naturally the better fit....and SL would have been good for our dead twin. But our leads are just both a little too 'perfect' for me right now. And our second lead really deserves someone in his live who openly and genuinely loves him.

I don't know how I feel about Eun Byul's Mom wanting Eun Bi to actually take Eun Byul's place. It's one thing to take the girl in because she reminds you of your daughter, but to make her actually turn into your daughter and just forget her past identity is a little crazy. She isn't Eun Byul and she will never be her, I want her to embrace her own identity. Hopefully we see that develop.

Also I feel like the only one on Yi An's side.... I really like him...

Maybe it's just because I loved all the well-made scenes between eun bi and tae gwang, but i like how purplecow interprets their interactions. How they became each other's confidante even without realizing.

And I like how their conversation goes on. Both are saying that they lie, but only eun bi lies while tae gwang tells the truth that he disguised as lies. It shows how deep inside, tae gwang is someone who wants to be understood but afraid to let people in. Instead eun bi is someone who is afraid to let people know the truth but wanted to have someone next to her.

You just can't help but ship these two because of how well-balanced the characters' developments are.

PLOT TWIST:

Eun Bi actually died when she committed suicide, Eun Byul tried to save her but she failed and almost died too. She suffered from amnesia but can somehow remember Eun Bi's memories. Remember in the beginning of this episode where there was this "I believe in twin telepathy" in a diary? I think that's some foreshadowing.

Idk, I just find it hard to believe they'd just kill the real Eun Byul considering all the mystery concerning her death but at the same time I don't know how they could explain the body found without either of the twins being dead.

This episode was great, though I really don't understand why Eun Bi didn't go back to the orphanage before going to Seoul. Wouldn't it have been best to reassure them she is alive, and tell them she is going to Seoul? So at least that poor little girl could have someone to write too if she had a bad time. I can't believe she would just leave them like that. Also I wonder what happened to Eun Byul. Its a kdrama...so maybe Eun byul and Eunbi had afight, Eun Byul ran out into the street and got ran over? (Just joking.) I don't really know how it makes sense that she was found in the river when she could clearly swim, perhaps suicide? The mark on her neck is also intriguing. I was not expecting the bully to come to Seoul and cannot wait to see what happens next.

Also love Eun Bi with the director's son. They are so cute. I hope she tells him who she is, so at least she has one person who knows. Having to be a replacement for Eun byul - especially in the case of the mom - must be hard.

I am really enjoying this drama so far. KSH is (not surprisingly) perfect for the role. She is really an acting prodigy. Everyone is doing great in their role. I'd like to especially mention the actress who plays the bully So Young. It's more difficult to pull off playing evil and she does it so well. I really hate her character which is kudos to her great acting.

The writers already show us in previous ep that there are anti eun byul students on her class. An example of that is the 2 students who kept on talking bad things about Eun Byul, i think one of them is called Ha yeon. They'll be perfect as minions of So Young hahahaha fudging barrrrrr I cant wait to see episode 5! BTW greatly appreciated your recap purplecow!

I ship YiAn-EunBi:) I love Yi Ahn's cuteness, hilarious playfulness:) He is very gentle and sweet, helpful like EunBi. They are not rude (than Byul or Gwang).
I think EunByul died, because this story is about EunBi. I understand that viewers doubt (a very little me too), because we don't know how, why she died suddenly, that night's events aren't clear. A lot of question... BUT as they showed her burial place, this is enough serious. Plus when she argued with Yi Ahn, she had serious problem (her neck), so something happened which led to her death.
By chance she would live, I ship EunBi-YiAhn as well, but I doubt strongly about her exist.

I hope Eunbyul isn't dead, and I really don't like how the mother makes Eunbi lives as Eunbyul, that means that Eunbi sort of threw away herself to live in her sister's shoes and she would never be able to be herself again. I just find it so painful to be reminded that you yourself don't exist, and now you have to exist as your sister.

I also have severe second lead syndrome and am hoping that director's son ends up with Eunbi instead, I do have high hopes that Eunbi will tell him who she is first. If Eunbyul isn't dead, I'm hoping the writers will put Eunbyul and Yian

But I also want Eun Byul to be alove for the romance to work out. We should make Yi Ahn and Tae Gwang happy by having both of the twins alive, right?

Anyway, I would like to digress with the part about Song Mikyung being selfish to ask Eunbi to live as Eunbyul. She's not crazy or anything, she's a mother in mourning and I don't think anyone would find it easy to process and adjust right away to the situation the three of them are in. I think she came off wrong that she's coercing Eunbi to drop who she is; no, she probably meant have that happy life her daughter had with her back in Seoul instead of the unfair one she almost died because of in Tongyeong. I have high hopes that Mikyung continues going out of her way to be the warmth-providing angel of a mom to Eunbi just as she was to Eunbyul. Give her time, for now, they're both just leaning to each other, making the best out of their found family. I'm sure the two of them will get to the acceptance stage, both of the reality (if it were really true) that Eunbyul's gone for good and Eunbi is now the daughter needing Mikyung's love and care.

haha meh well when I watched this ep you cant really deny that eun byul's mom was a "bit" selfish. She specifically ask Eun bi to erase her past memories and live as Eun byul. In my perpective she wants to forget not only the name of Eun bi but her existence. Take note Eun bi commited suicide because no one help or acknowledge her and Eun byul's mom knows this. In my perspective Eun byul's mom is repeating what Eun Bi's classmates did to Eun bi not physically but emotionaly? mentally ? haha Eun bi's being/identity was rejected by her peers (So Young) and nooooow her psuedo mother wants to reject not only her name but her whole existence hahaha But if she lives as Eun byul she'll experience the normal teen life! Soooo what will a "young" orphan who just commited suicide choose? or does she really have a choice on the matter? ... that makes me feel a "bit" upset on Eun byul's mom. To wrap up i know eun byul's mom is mourning the death of her daughter sooo she has an excuse to be "bit" loopy but so is eun bi ..its her sister. Peace out~~~

I really hope eun byul is alive so that she can be with yi-an and eun bi can be with tae-gwang and everyone can just be happy and beautiful together... except for so-young.

I'd like to second/third the idea that Eun-Byul is still alive and that she has somehow incorporated/received Eun-Bi's memories. She does have amnesia for Eun-Byul whose memories will be triggered when she has to relive a memory that was traumatic for Eun-Byul--say episode 8 given traditional drama timelines. She then has to figure out which twin she actually is (maybe this is even left a mystery?). Happy ending is incorporating both twins into one body...

And can Tae-gwang end up being her/their brother? For some reason that seems like a really nice idea... that Tae-gwang was adopted which is why his dad has such a hard time connecting with him... and would clear up why people don't connect him with his parents.

I'm so happy. xD who knew there THAT many Tae kwang and Eun Bi shippers!!! haha!! I thought I was the only one since two of my sisters wants her to end up with Yi Han (not sure about my little sister though. She might be switching because of me. hehe). But I just couldn't see it between Yi Han and Eun Bi because the one he has been loving all these time is Eun Byul not Eun Bi. And besides, who couldn't see the chemistry between Tae kwang and Eun Bi? it is like off the charts!!!! She doesn't even need to pretend to be Eun Byul in his presence and they just totally match each other in personality and their situation.

I hope I am not the only one shipping Eun-bi with Yi-ahn here. I can't wait for an episode where he gets to shine and show how much he's worthy of the girl. I love this show, so far! :-)

[Spoiler Alert]

Omaigod previously I dont feel anything towards Yi An because I know he like Eun Byul, not Eun Bi, that's why I ship Eun Bi with Tae Gwang. But in this ep I feel quite sorry for him esp when Eun Bi yelling at him in front of the cafe. Poor that innocence soul who knows nothing about Eun Bi T_T I reallyyy realllyyy hope Yi An will know the truth asap so that he can grief (EunByul need as far as I know since she's dead at this moment *not sure if one day she'll pop up somewhere) and can make up his mind earlier that the one he's facing now is EunBi not EunByul. And TaeGwang awwww what a sweet guy he is. At last someone appear, someone that can really look at EunBi as she is, not as EunByul (apart from SooKyung that bit**) Urgh I've just finish ep 6 now I need ep 7 immediately! Oh dont skip the last part (where the ost keep on going) because you can see when did EunByul appear when EunBi wants to suicide. I've already put the spoiler alert, dont blame meeee okay though I dont spill that much hehe.

Am I the only one who thinks Tae Kwang and Eun Bi are the endgame?!?! Why are all the Tae Kwang/Eun Bi shippers saying they have second lead syndrome? Am I missing something here?? LOL.

With that being said though, I love Yi-an too much to really ship Tae Kwang/Eun Bi cries. Hopefully Eun-byul really is alive so Yi-an doesn't end up heartbroken LOL.
