Perfect Wife: Episode 15

Just when it looks like Jae-bok has finally gotten herself and her children free from Eun-hee’s clutches, Jung-hee screws it all up again. His greed and overconfidence make him reckless, which could stir Eun-hee’s anger into something much more dangerous if he’s discovered. As much as Jae-bok would love to let him suffer the consequences of his own actions, Jung-hee is the father of her children, and she can’t leave him to Eun-hee without doing what she can to help.

 
EPISODE 15 RECAP

When Jae-bok confronts Jung-hee with proof that Eun-hee was his stalker in college, Eun-hee begins stammering more apologies and promises. Sick of hearing them, Jae-bok tells Eun-hee to shut up and stop lying before ordering Eun-hee to get out of her family’s life.

Jae-bok tells Jung-hee that she’s not doing this to get back together with him, she just can’t stand watching him head toward disaster. She tells him to get out of this situation and to stop being a shameful father to their children.

But instead of obeying her as he’s always done, Jung-hee glares back at Jae-bok and asks what’s so shameful about him. He points out that he’s successful now, and he accuses her of resenting him now that he’s doing well for himself. He tears up the article that Eun-hee wrote as Eun-kyung, declaring that he doesn’t care who she used to be.

He pulls Eun-hee to his side and tells Jae-bok that she did everything out of love and that he intends to marry her. A shriek startles all three of them, and they see Jung-hee’s mother standing in the doorway, having heard her son say that he plans to marry his stalker. Shaking with terror, she collapses to the floor.

Jae-bok gets Jung-hee alone to ask if he has his memory back, which he’d lost after Eun-hee tried to kill them both. He says that he remembers, but that Eun-hee is all better now. Jae-bok snaps that she can’t save him from himself and says that it’s really, truly over between them.

She decides that he can’t see the kids whenever he wants, so Jung-hee counters that he wants to renegotiate their custody agreement. Now that he makes more money, he sneers, he can’t allow his children to grow up poor. Jae-bok reminds him that she was the one who paid for the apartment in Eun-hee’s house, and she warns that if Jung-hee pushes this issue, she’ll bring up every single thing he’s done.

Worried about Jae-bok confronting Jung-hee and Eun-hee alone, Bong-gu comes to the house to check on her. He insists on driving her back to Won-jae’s house and grabs her wrist to prove how badly she’s shaking.

Eun-hee thinks it’s terribly romantic that Jung-hee still wants to marry her even after remembering everything, seeing it as proof of how much he loves her. Hyung-sun asks if she’s sure Jung-hee doesn’t have some ulterior motive, but Eun-hee refuses to hear a single bad word about him. Hyung-sun grumbles that Eun-hee loses perspective around Jung-hee, which will be her downfall.

Meanwhile, Jung-hee talks to his mother, reassuring her that he really is fine. He says that he can control Eun-hee so long as he’s careful, since he’s determined to marry her and gain success through her connections. He asks his mother to be strong and trust him for just one year so that he can give his children a better life.

Bong-gu can’t stand to see Jae-bok so preoccupied, so he takes her to see the cherry blossoms. As they walk under the gently falling petals, Jae-bok thanks Bong-gu, but he says that he’s the thankful one and awkwardly murmurs, “Seaweed soup.” He admits that he’d never had it before (that’s so sad – traditionally, mothers make it for their children on their birthday), then he gets adorably embarrassed at his own show of emotion.

He also apologizes for Sugar Mama’s outburst in the office, and Jae-bok says honestly that she doesn’t approve of his lifestyle. Bong-gu gives her his most charming smile and asks how he can raise his score, so Jae-bok allows him a few points for coming to her rescue today.

Won-jae has a grand time remembering her almost-kiss with Sam-kyu… until Hye-ran shows up to burst her bubble. Won-jae reminds her friend that she broke up with Sam-kyu and has no right to be jealous, then she calls him to ask him on a date just to drive home her point.

Hye-ran snatches the phone to screech that she’ll kill Sam-kyu if he dates her friend. Sam-kyu takes the coward’s way out and pretends to get disconnected, but then he squees to himself that Won-jae asked him out. Such a cutie.

Won-jae’s daughter catches the two ladies fighting over Sam-kyu and deadpans that she sees why Jae-bok thinks Hye-ran is like Eun-hee. Then she asks her mother if a man is worth throwing away her twenty-year friendship with Hye-ran. Smart girl.

When Jae-bok gets back, she tells her friends how everything backfired on her tonight. What worries her most is Jung-hee’s threat to sue for custody, because it would mean that her children would have to live with Eun-hee. Won-jae assures Jae-bok that the last thing Eun-hee wants is her kids, so if Jung-hee pushes the issue, Eun-hee will do something to show her true colors.

Arriving back at the house after taking his mother home, Jung-hee runs into Eun-hee — and for one horrifying moment, he sees her as she looked back in college. Eun-hee asks why he pretended not to know her when he knew she used to be Moon Eun-kyung, expressing embarrassment that she’s been assuming he didn’t know.

Jung-hee thinks fast and fibs that he had already started to like her when he remembered, so he didn’t think there was a point in bringing up the past. This dispels Eun-hee’s suspicion, and she throws her arms around him, elated to hear that he’s happy with her. Behind her back, Jung-hee’s face goes slack.

Jung-hee’s mother cries to herself, recalling the days just after Jung-hee broke things off with Eun-kyung, and she tried to kill him. His mom had hovered over his hospital bed, and when he’d woken, he’d hallucinated that she was Eun-kyung. Jung-hee had flipped out, screaming and begging her not to come near him. Now his mother can’t understand how he could marry Eun-hee when he feared her so badly then.

Eun-hee sets up a fancy dinner on the lawn and wears her best dress, and she turns on some music so they can dance. She doesn’t notice Jung-hee’s discomfort, and she thanks him for forgiving her. She says that she’s always regretted that she hurt him once, but Jung-hee says that the future is what’s important.

Giddy with happiness, Eun-hee starts to giggle uncontrollably, then twirls around the yard under the drifting cherry blossoms. Jung-hee watches her, looking scared but trapped.

Worried about money, Jae-bok admits to herself that she talked big to Jung-hee, but she’s more concerned than she let on. As she looks at her sleeping children, she vows that she’ll do anything to protect them.

In the morning, Jung-hee tells Eun-hee that he wants to sue for custody of his children. Eun-hee argues vehemently that children should live with their mother, but Jung-hee makes it clear that his children are his first priority.

Eun-hee follows him downstairs to try and change his mind, but Jung-hee says that if she loves him, then she’ll love his children, too. Growing angry, Eun-hee asks why he can’t respect her wishes, and he says that giving up his kids is the one thing he won’t do. He goes without another word, leaving Eun-hee to throw a tantrum.

Jae-bok instructs her children never to leave school with Eun-hee, no matter what she says. Jin-wook grumbles that he doesn’t like Eun-hee anymore anyway. He cringes when his mom wants him to say he loves her, but little Hae-wook happily chirps that she loves her mommy more than anything. Eun-hee asks if she misses her daddy, and though Hae-wook pouts and says she doesn’t, Jae-bok can tell it’s not true.

Eun-hee lies on her bed, stewing over Jung-hee’s refusal to marry her unless she accepts his children. She pulls herself together and decides that after all these years of planning, she’s not going to lose him over some brats.

She surprises Jung-hee at work with lunch, claiming that she’s worried because he skipped breakfast. She apologizes for arguing about the kids and says that she’ll go along with whatever he wants. She even offers to hire him the best lawyers, which has Jung-hee genuinely thankful.

Eun-hee hugs Jung-hee and sighs that soon they’ll have their own kids. She seems ecstatic at the idea, but Jung-hee grows wary again.

Worried about a possible legal battle, Jae-bok asks Jung-hee’s mother to testify to make sure Eun-hee doesn’t get her children. As scared as she is of Eun-hee, Jung-hee’s mom seems hesitant to testify against her own son.

Jung-hee is annoyed when Jae-bok calls him to her office to talk, but he shows up anyway. Sam-kyu leaves them alone, then he answers a call from Eun-hee, who asks if he has any information for her. He decides not to tell her that Jung-hee is with Jae-bok right now, but she already knows, since she has someone loitering outside his office.

Jae-bok informs Jung-hee that she’s already filed a complaint, and that he’s not allowed to see the children without her permission until the trial is over. He says that he’ll file his own complaint to demand visitation.

When Jung-hee runs into Bong-gu on his way out, he guesses that Bong-gu is acting as Jae-bok’s lawyer. He says darkly that he’ll uncover all of Bong-gu’s filth, but Bong-gu jokingly says that Jung-hee is the filthy one, mentioning the photos that he burned.

Jae-bok pokes her head out, and Jung-hee warns her to be careful of Bong-gu, or he’ll stab her in the back. She retorts that she has no back left after all the times Jung-hee has stabbed her, ha. She calls Bong-gu inside and he goes with a happy smirk, and Jung-hee scoffs at their playful bickering.

They get down to business with the custody case, with Bong-gu confident that the key is proving that Eun-hee is insane. Jae-bok correctly assumes that all of the records have been destroyed, so there’s no chance that Hyung-sun or Jung-hee will testify that she was institutionalized, and she’s not sure about Jung-hee’s mother.

Jae-bok and Bong-gu realize they need to set up a situation where Eun-hee will be seen behaving erratically. Jae-bok asks Bong-gu not to let Na-mi know of their plans, concerned that she’ll do something reckless. Unfortunately, Na-mi is right outside listening to every word, and she smirks like she’s already getting ideas.

Eun-hee also meets with a lawyer, who tells her that they could lose the case if Eun-hee has received psychological treatment in the past. Though Eun-hee informs the lawyer that she’s cured, he still thinks it will be a disadvantage for the trial.

He warns Eun-hee that she must control her emotions until the trial is over, since even with the records destroyed, the opposition knows of her psychological problems. Later, Hyung-sun asks Eun-hee if she can control her temper for that long. Eun-hee says that she’s waited this long for Jung-hee, so she won’t lose control.

Hyung-sun sneers that she already had that one outburst in public, when she passed out in front of a crowd. Eun-hee waves that away like it’s not important, since she didn’t know how Jung-hee felt back then. Her control is immediately tested when she receives a photo from her spy which shows Na-mi and Jung-hee talking together.

Na-mi seems to be aware of the man taking their pictures, as she tells Jung-hee that people at the company are calling him “Cinderella.” She says that she hopes he’s recognized for his own abilities, then denies it when Jung-hee asks if she’s trying to seduce him again. As she walks away, she thinks that this is just the first part of her plan to help Bong-gu by making Eun-hee look crazy.

Eun-hee asks Brian to fire Na-mi, since her flirting with Jung-hee bothers her. He refuses, reminding her that he and Na-mi are dating (it’s not true, but he wants her to think that). Brian asks Eun-hee if being with Jung-hee truly makes her happy, and she says she’s so happy that it makes her afraid.

Out for coffee, Jae-bok asks Bong-gu why he’s being so good to her lately. He gives a vague answer, so she asks what mission he was given by Eun-hee. Bong-gu’s grin slips as he warns that she might be offended, but he tells her honestly that Eun-hee ordered him to seduce her.

Jae-bok goes on a rant about how Eun-hee’s answer to everything is to seduce someone, ha. She asks why Bong-gu isn’t doing as he was told, and he hilariously accuses her of hoping for it. Jae-bok is all, Come at me, I dare you, and Bong-gu throws an arm around her so it will look like he’s doing his job, just in case someone is watching.

Eun-hee’s spy is taking pictures — and luckily, since Bong-gu and Jae-bok are laughing, they’re good enough that Eun-hee believes that Bong-gu is performing his mission well. She goes to see Jung-hee’s mother and catches her taking out the trash, and she tries to approach her. But Jung-hee’s mom recoils from Eun-hee, throws her bags of garbage at her, and runs back inside.

Eun-hee waits for Jung-hee’s mother to come out again, and when she does, Eun-hee falls to her knees to beg forgiveness. Jung-hee’s mom drags her back to her feet, and Eun-hee presses the keys to a luxury apartment on her. Jung-hee’s mom snaps that this won’t work, but she doesn’t refuse the keys, either.

Next, Eun-hee intercepts Jin-wook and Che-ri on their way home from school. Che-ri refuses to leave Jin-wook alone when Eun-hee asks, then blatantly eavesdrops as Eun-hee asks Jin-wook why he doesn’t visit her anymore. Jin-wook reminds her that the last time they spoke, Eun-hee was angry and rude to him.

Eun-hee explains that she wasn’t feeling well, but Che-ri breaks in to say that that’s no excuse, and that Eun-hee went out shopping right after that. Eun-hee apologizes to Jin-wook and says she bought him a new guitar and amp, inviting him to come whenever he wants.

Sam-kyu and Won-jae meet for lunch, where they obviously feel incredibly awkward. Scared of the prices, Sam-kyu fakes an allergy to get out of paying for the meal, but Hye-ran already warned Won-jae how cheap he is. She offers to pay and Sam-kyu experiences a sudden, miraculous recovery.

But they’re both shocked when Hye-ran shows up and invites herself to lunch, then orders the lobster for all three of them. Sam-kyu digs into the succulent lobster obliviously while Won-jae looks like she’s planning to strangle Hye-ran with her own hair.

The next time Eun-hee talks to Brian, she’s startled to learn that he’s not the one who took the photos from her secret room. She wracks her brain trying to think who it may have been, then sends her spy on an emergency errand.

Angry with Na-mi for her interference, Brian roughly drags her aside to warn that he’ll fire her if she keeps it up. Na-mi promises that she’ll stop flirting with Jung-hee, and Bong-gu happens by as she’s pouting at Brian. Brian leaves, and Bong-gu says he came to drive Na-mi home.

Awww, he’s so sweet, he even got her favorite clementines for Na-mi to snack on. He lectures Na-mi that Jung-hee is bad news these days and orders her to stay away from him.

Eun-hee has her spy clone Jung-hee’s phone so that she can track him, read his texts, and even listen in on his calls. She makes a huge fancy meal for dinner, and while they eat, she asks about Na-mi. Jung-hee says they work in different departments, so he doesn’t see her very often.

Seeing the elaborate food, Jung-hee remembers a time when he and the kids met Jae-bok for a simple meal, though Jae-bok had complained that they couldn’t afford it. But then she’d felt guilty when the kids complained that there wasn’t enough, so she ordered more anyway.

Jung-hee tells Eun-hee that he doesn’t feel well and excuses himself. He calls Jae-bok, missing his children, but she says he can’t see them now. He throws on a coat to go anyway, but Eun-hee stops him on his way out. She knows he’s lying about going to the office, but she remembers her lawyer’s warning to keep her temper in check and lets him go.

He picks up Jin-wook from prep school and brings him to Won-jae’s, and the kids are so happy to see him that Jae-bok invites him to dinner. She softens as she watches Jung-hee and Hae-wook feeding each other and snuggling at the table.

Eun-hee waits, but Jung-hee doesn’t return. Eventually she stands, tosses the food to the floor, then storms out of the house. She lets herself into Won-jae’s place, scaring the whole family when they look up to see her staring at them.

She’s frighteningly calm, and when Jae-bok sends him a tiny head-shake, Jung-hee goes with her. Jae-bok asks if Eun-hee is going to apologize for barging in on them, and when Eun-hee stammers that something urgent came up, Jae-bok asks if her anger is that urgent.

Eun-hee holds everything in until she and Jung-hee get outside, then she stops and says that he’s never laughed with her the way she saw him laughing with his children. She asks why he lied to her, but he fires right back, asking why she eavesdropped on his phone call.

She says that she knew he was lying, but he counters that he lied because she wouldn’t have let him go if he’d told the truth. Unable to stay silent about her suspicions, Eun-hee asks if Jung-hee pretended not to remember her in order to use her for her money. Jung-hee tells Eun-hee that it’s not wrong for a father to want to see his kids. Growing more upset, he asks Eun-hee why she lied about having changed since she was Eun-kyung.

He spits that if she acts this way, people will think she’s not sane. Eun-hee’s expression goes scarily neutral as she asks if he’s saying she’s psycho, then she slaps him across the face. She tells him in a cold voice to shut his mouth, but the blow infuriates Jung-hee past the point of reason.

Just as it looks like someone may really get hurt, they hear a noise. They look up to see Jae-bok nearby, filming them with her phone. Jae-bok says the recording is her evidence that Eun-hee has issues with rage and obsession, thus her proof that she and Jung-hee are unfit to have custody of the children.

Eun-hee demands that Jae-bok hand over the phone, and she lunges at her. Jae-bok holds her off long enough for Jung-hee to grab her from behind, but she continues to fight and scream at Jae-bok to give her the phone. Jae-bok coldly says that the more upset she gets, the worse it will go for her.

 
COMMENTS

I know I said that I wanted to see Jung-hee get a backbone and take control of his own life, but now he’s gone and jumped the shark. I know that he’s not really in love with Eun-hee, and I’d been hoping he was planning some sort of revenge. It’s obvious that he finds her repugnant, if not downright horrifying — he can barely look at her, and whenever she touches him he looks like he wants to throw up. He’s so bad at hiding what he’s really feeling that he’s lucky Eun-hee has been too deep in her delusion to notice until now.

If he’s telling the truth and his plan is to use Eun-hee to gain money and power, then (I suppose) dump her after a year, then he’s dumber than I thought. This is a woman who has been stalking his family, buying people, and planning to trick him into coming back to her for over a decade. Does Jung-hee really think that Eun-hee will just give him a divorce and go on her merry way when he decides he’s finished with her? At the very least, he’ll lose the job and money he’d have gotten while with Eun-hee. What does he think he’s going to do after that to continue being successful, even if Eun-hee does let him go peacefully? Which she won’t. There’s no way this plan of Jung-hee’s can succeed.

The only reason I could think of that might explain Jung-hee’s behavior was if he were trying to protect Jae-bok and his kids. By distancing himself from them, he could redirect Eun-hee’s focus off of them and fully onto himself. But then he decided to sue Jae-bok for custody and there went that theory. If he’s really doing all this just to have a fancy job and a good paycheck, then that’s one thing, but to bring his children to live with a woman he knows will harm others to get what she wants is irresponsible and dangerous. Eun-hee isn’t sane, and eventually she’s going to get jealous of the attention Jung-hee gives to his kids, and then who knows what she’ll do. She’s already put a target on their backs by telling her that they’re his first priority, so how much worse will Eun-hee be now that she has a reason to directly target Jin-wook and Hae-wook?

On the other hand, I’m so proud of Bong-gu right now! Not that I was ever really worried, but I was so happy when he told Jae-bok that his mission from Eun-hee was to seduce her. This show is just full of people who let themselves be bought by Eun-hee, and not just bad people, but people who are otherwise decent human beings like Na-mi and Sam-kyu. Even Jung-hee’s mother was swayed by a fancy apartment when she knows more than anyone how badly her son was traumatized by Eun-hee and how his life was ruined. So to see Bong-gu, who previously categorized his dates by their net worth and who let himself be kept by a rich girl who paid for his car and clothes, put his friendship with Jae-bok above money is just really refreshing to see. We know he has feelings for Jae-bok, but I don’t even feel like that’s his main reason for coming clean to Jae-bok about Eun-hee’s mission for him to seduce her.

What I love about Bong-gu as a second lead is that his romantic feelings for Jae-bok always take second place to the respect and admiration he holds for her. We don’t have to suffer through him pining after her — though we see his pain at times, it’s not the primary focus of their relationship. Bong-gu is learning from Jae-bok’s example on how to be a good person: to be honest and not to take advantage of others, and to always do the right thing even if it’s hard. I just think it’s wonderful that for once, the second lead’s role in a drama isn’t to wring more angst out of the audience, but to highlight how he’s being changed for the better by having known the heroine.

Thank you so much for the recap, @LollyPip !!!
Yesterday's episode was absolutely amazing!
I am so in love with the interaction between Bong-gu and Jae-bok in this episode !! I rewatched each scene several times. It's so weird that I both WANT a romantic angle to it and yet, it would be soooo wonderful if they simply stayed as super good bickering friends.

when Jae-bok clapped back "I have no back, you have stabbed me too many times" at her ex-husband, I howled with laughter and Bong-gu's expression was priiiiiiceless !!

MORE MORE MORE!

What an awesome burn! I had the same expression as Bong-gu! Jae-bok's got some great lines in this episode. I really like how in the beginning when that piece of trash, Jung Hee, was going to challenge her for custody and that he had the advantage of being in a better financial position, she shot back with something like "I'll build a case and get a lot of alimony from you".

Agree so much! She's so great at flipping between so many of personalities - kind and innocent, cold, femme fatale, hot-tempered, hurt little girl, and nerdy stalker. It's so weird to see Jo Yeo-Jung as Eun Hee when the last time I had seen her in a drama was Haeundae Lovers where she was this sweet and innocent country gal.

I'm sure Jin Wook will end up being like his dad. Some poor crazy gal will be obsessed with him. And some competent gal will end up marrying him and wasting a decade on him (sort of afraid that girl will be Cheri). I'm so tired of Jin Wook. Sort of wish Jae Bok would just give him to Jung Hee and be well rid of these idiots.

By contrast, Hae Wook is so freaking sweet and such a comfort to Jae Bok in this turbulent time. Also perceptive too. I think she caught onto Eun Hee being suspicious before Jae Bok.

Exactly! Hae-wook caught up Eun-hee dancing with her cast on while she was pretending to others that her feet was still hurt falling from the stairs and being in the wheel-chair. Since then, she was really afraid of Eun-hee.

I liked Cheri's comment about Men easily getting swayed when Jae Wook was tempted by Eun hee's offers. Lol she is so insightful. I lowkey ship Cheri and Jae Wook, they are an otp on itself. So I think the competent girl who will end up marrying will be her.

I said this somewhere else also, but Jung-hee and Eun-hee are both terrible people. They deserve each other. Eun-hee was always crazy, but Jung-hee went from being pathetic to downright disgusting. I don't know what world he lives in where he thinks his kids will be happy or safe living with the lady who has been obsessing over him for 15 years. As much as the kids love him, I just can't even find a small drop of sympathy for him. I hope they both get out of Jae-bok's life.

Jung Hee is easily the most useless spouse I've seen in a drama, and is in good running for the most despicable—there are other characters who have done worse, but at least they had some kind of smarts and conviction. He's just a craven opportunist willing to risk his marriage, family, and kids for whatever he thinks he can get out of his current situation (whether his affair with Na Mi, or using Eun Hee). I don't feel in the least bit sorry for him. I'm just worried that his stupidity will get his kids hurt. And I'll just say…Jung Hee's mother is no better. The apple didn't fall far from the tree with those two.

My sentiments exactly! And he is just as stupid as he is spineless if he thinks that his 'leach-off-eunhee' one year plan is feasible. Did he forget the terror this woman put him through just to have him, and the fact she's been planning this whole scheme for 10 years? Don't get me started in Jung-hee jnr, so much for not liking Eunhee, the mention of a new guitar had him singing a new tune!?

I have no idea where it is going. I'm not ashamed to say that I don't want them back together because, despite the fact it won't happen, I ship Jaebok with Bong-gu.
But then I see Junghee loves his kids and that his kids NEED both their parents around.
But I just don't see how they are going to get back together after all this. They have no respect or affection for each other, and the forgiveness necessary for them to get back together requires a love that I have not seen in their relationship, except in flashbacks to when they were dating.
I honestly have no idea where this relationship or this drama is headed. But the writers are gonna have to do a lot to redeem Junghee if they want to get him and Jaebok back together and not have me rage quit the drama.

Maybe they could actually have a successful shared custody arrangement and show kdramas that it is possible.

Although Jung Hee is not the most honorable or responsible parent. He has so many faults but he does love his kids.

I should have said visitation rights not shared custody.

Seriously, I would be really upset if they got back together, both because JB deserves so much better than to be married to scum like JH, but also because it would not make sense to the story. JH hasn't shown any signs of learning or changing for the better; on the contrary he has been making new mistakes every episode. Almost all of the scenes between him and JB are negative, and the rest are neutral; I barely see any respect between them, let alone love. Since there has been no development in the direction of them mending their relationship or starting over at all, I would consider it bad storytelling if the writer decided to get them back together at the last minute.

It has been established episodes way back that she doesnt really love him anymorek since she caught him cheating. She was giving him chances before for the kids, they even got divorced already even with nami "dead", just stayed in one house for the kids.

I think it's safe to say now. Since the divorce, there have been several times when Jae Bok has said something to the effect of "You can do what you want. You're divorced". She does care about JH as the father of her children and maybe even as a friend, but it seems like the romantic feelings are too dead to revive the marriage.

At first I instinctively clicked on my post's 'like' button to see who else had liked it, and ended up liking it myself. With it this way, you can like all your own posts and no one will be he wiser! Hahaha

This might have been already asked but I seriously want to know what happened Kyung-Woo. He was abducted obviously by our resident psycho. But shouldn't someone be looking for him by now?

He's being held in a plot hole, waiting to be rescued by the writers when they run out of drama.

Maybe he will appear in the court, to tell the truth about Eun hee's mental state. For now, we can assume that he ran for his life after being kidnapped by her. He is not a righteous person anyway and does anything for money. It was the momentary guilt he felt towards Jae bok, that messed up things.

Omgoodness thank you for someone else bringing that up, I have been asking that question ever since he mysteriously disappeared, obviously abducted by the truck/van that stopped in front of him? I really hate it when a character or story line just disappears with no explanation from the writers and no one seems to notice or care, and we're expected not to notice either or forget I guess? JB just conveniently forgot about him too, someone who was supposed to be her "first love" and who she had fantasies about? Yeah really bad writing there, someone better redeem themselves!

I don't know if anyone noticed but didn't it look like Jung Hee might of try to hit Eun Hee if not for Jae Bok coming out there to record their little scene (btw Props to Jaebok for being very brave recording them) Shameful couple award of the year goes to....

Jung-hee is really something else. Everything he says at the beginning of the episode is almost as crazy as Eun-hee. He was promoted because his ability was recognized? It's fine for EH to lie because she did it out of love? He'll save his children from poverty by bringing them to live with a dangerous stalker? It didn't escape my notice that as soon as he has the means he's totally fine with depriving Jae-bok of the kids again. Anyway, using EH's feelings for him to take her money and then dump her is pretty cruel, no matter how horrible she is. And as the recapper mentioned, it is also pretty dumb. EH may be delusional, but she is not stupid. JH's only advantage is her blind love for him, but she's already getting suspicious and who knows what she might do if she finds out his true motive. JH is scum as far as I am concerned, and still a loser on top of that.

Jae-bok and Bong-gu's relationship is the bright spot in the episode. They got over the incident with his sugar mama pretty quickly, and not only did he tell her about the seduction thing, but even hearing that she wasn't suspicious of him at all, which shows that she trusts him quite a lot. Their friendship is really very strong by this point.

Thanks for the recap! Jung-hee has to be one of the most horrible characters ever. He's never been likable, but taking advantage of a mentally ill woman is disgusting. Eun-hee has done terrible things, but dude knows exactly what she's like so he should be putting a stop to it instead of letting it spiral even more out of control for his own selfish reasons. Glad there are characters like Jae-bok and Bong-gu, who really make this show enjoyable along with all the twists. You never know what this show is gonna throw at you next.

I agree with you. Eun Hee is terrible, but Jung Hee taking advantage of her like that is even worse. And like lollypip has expressed, his actions are also idiotic. I was sure his insistence of having his kids with him would lead Eun Hee to remove them from the picture (maybe a car accident here or a kidnapping there).

I really like how Jae Bok and Bong-Gu can anticipate what Eun Hee would do. Like they deduced that she probably destroyed all records of her hospitalization. If this was another drama, they would have made the trip to look for these records only to find out 20 minutes later, they no longer exist.

Thanks @LollyPip~

Ok, lets start with a rant shall we? Ohmahgawd... JungHee!!! I was hoping for Truck of Doom to take him out in the middle of this episode, seriously. I always dislike him but he is just so repulsive. I dont care about his little scheme to get back at EH but he is putting his children in danger and he doesnt care, what kind of father are you dude? Support them is being a good father, making a psycho take care of them is not! He cant even control EH and EH is right, it is obvious JH try to take her money. I'm pretty sure if Chari is around, she will scoff at his idea too. So childish, so basic. That is just to show how incompetent he is, he cant even think of an elaborate scheme. I reiterate in each episode, they better not try to make JB & JH get back together at end. JH doesnt deserves anybody, even EH.
JB continues to rock & always so smart. I like that she and BG start taking measures to ensure they win the custody battle and accurate predict that she cant trust JH's mom. Me too~ I'm hoping that BG or Nami reach out to Brian, I'm sure he is willing to help. I'm scared about Nami though. Please dont let anything bad happen to her. I know she means well but I'm nervous. EH's facade is cracking all over the place and we all know she is capable of a lot of bad things.
Wonjae & Hyeran should listen to Chari. She is bratty but she is so right~

Jung-hee is trash. Ugh. Every episode he just gets WORSE! He does not need custody of those kids. Especially knowing that Eun-hee has serious mental issues and he really thinks it's a great idea to bring his kids into that home. I'm glad Jae-bok is done with him.

Am now seriously considering who is having a mental disability; Jung-hee knows that Eun-hee is a psycho and he wants to raise the children with her o_O, like, is his logic still working? There goes his last redeeming point indeed.
Have been scratching my head over how everybody knows about Eun-hee's problem and still let her run amok when she should be treated, for her own sake as much for the people around her, but I guess it's hard to find hard & legal evidence. Wondering whether dad has something to do with hiding the trails. Is he still around? He was mentioned but never seen...
A bit in askance about Won-jae + Sam-kyu + Hye-ran, seems like a filler of sort, but loving the bonding time between Jae-bok + Bong-gu, and Na-mi + Bong-gu. Hoping Na-mi see the light about Jung-hee and totally ditch him soon, she'd be so much better with Brian.

Jung-hee so desperately wants to show Jae-bok that he can have more money than her, that he can be more successful than her, that he can be the less embarrassing parent to their kids, he's willing to side with Eun-hee all while knowing she's a psychologically unstable person. He's even willing to fight Jae-bok for custody of the kids! What's unfortunate is that he seems to want to outshine Jae-bok so much that he's losing sight of the danger he puts his family in----the family he claims to care so much about.

I really like this show and the only thing that can take my enjoyment of this show is if Jung-hee and Jae-bok get back together. I'd even be okay if they Bong-gu and Jae-bok don't end up together as long as JH and JB don't reconcile.
