You have to love mothers who stand by their children. The spotlight is all on Jieun’s mom Hyeja this episode. Hyeja comes into the restaurant and sees Sangyeob on the phone, so she circles around him, shooting him dirty, woeful looks until he feels so awkward that he hangs up on his friend.
Even later in the day, she sees Sangyeob’s car and actually keys the driver’s door! Only to find out, seconds later, that she keyed the wrong car. The driver comes back eventually and she apologizes, telling him that she’ll pay for the reparations. Luckily, the driver is a) really rich and b) kindhearted. He says, “You scratched it, so you waited here for me? In this weather? It’s fine. Go.” He says gruffly that he has to get somewhere quickly anyways, and leaves.
Jieun comes home from the club still knackered and high on her “I’m a bad girl, hear me roar” phase. She starts dancing on walls and sliding up and down Hyunwoo, who looks at her half-amused and half-bemused. “I should have known this was coming. You’ve been too quiet lately,” he says. She tells him that she’s not interested in men who are easy, and not to think too much of this, since she’s just that kind of girl. Yeah.
And then she pops it upstairs like a diva, only to trip on her high heels.
Aww, I’m sensing the budding seeds of affection.
Also, how much do I love that, while Jieun’s going through all the stereotypical steps of regaining self-esteem and getting over a boy, Hyunwoo is taking the dog to the vet and looking like the healthiest poster boy ever for cotton clothing, dogs and milk? Go home, Jieun!
