She Was Pretty: Episode 10

It’s becoming increasingly difficult for Sung-joon to hide his feelings — the question is, what is he going to do about it, because it’s beginning to mess with his head. And he’s not the only one who can’t hide his feelings anymore, as everyone in our little love-square realizes that the lying and hiding has to stop. Unfortunately, telling the truth will be a lot harder than they think.

EPISODE 10 RECAP

Hye-jin accidentally takes Ah-reum’s broken-down car to her interview, which breaks down on her. It begins to rain and she looks for a sign of where she is so she can call for help, and comes upon an accident in which the driver was badly hurt.

Sung-joon rushes to find Hye-jin when he reads of the accident, scared she was the one injured, and not even the rainy conditions frighten him as badly as the thought of her being hurt. Hye-jin sees Sung-joon yelling at the first responders and calls out to him, and his expression of relief is heart-wrenching. He runs to her and enfolds her in a desperate hug.

Sung-joon yells a little about Hye-jin’s carelessness, but she’s more concerned that he drove in the rain. Aww, she’s every bit as scared for him as he was for her. Sung-joon just stares at her, and says dazedly, “I didn’t know it was raining.”

Shin-hyuk watches from across the street, having also rushed to find Hye-jin, but he’s too late. He sees how utterly absorbed Sung-joon and Hye-jin are in each other, and he leaves without saying anything. He’s limping, and we see that he crashed his motorcycle in his hurry to find Hye-jin.

Safe in Sung-joon’s car, Hye-jin checks in with work while Sung-joon shoots her tiny nervous glances. He gives her a blanket (overriding her protests that he needs it more), and the drive back to town is filled with an awkward, hyper-aware silence.

Hye-jin turns on the radio but can’t find a station that isn’t playing a song about holding someone, so she turns it right back off. Sung-joon doesn’t seem to want to let her out of the car at her place, but all he can think of to say is that he’ll see her tomorrow.

She thinks about all the times when he seemed to care about her, and thinks to herself that when we want to tell the truth, we can hesitate from lack of courage. And in that moment of hesitation, it can become impossible to tell the truth. She comes to a decision and turns back, but he’s already driving away.

She takes a cab to his hotel, and sees him in the lobby. He calls out “Hye-jin-ah” — but he’s not looking at Hye-jin. She watches in shock as he approaches Ha-ri, calling her by Hye-jin’s name. In voiceover, she says that even if we muster up the courage to reveal the truth, some truths make us feel worse than the lies.

Hye-jin stares as her best friend pretends to be her, and Sung-joon apologizes for not keeping his promise again. He asks if he can beg off their date and rest, and Ha-ri agrees, but doesn’t give him her letter tonight, either.

Sung-joon watches her leave, and apologizes to her silently — he’d vowed not to do things to make her worry, but he thinks he may not be able to keep that promise.

Feeling betrayed, Hye-jin realizes how strange Ha-ri has been acting every time her new boyfriend is mentioned. She walks right into traffic, unaware of her surroundings, and rides the bus in a daze until it’s last stop.

Shin-hyuk calls her, and picks her up at the bus depot, having left the hospital where he was being treated for his accident injuries. He asks what she plans to do now — fight with her friend? Or tell Sung-joon the truth first?

Hye-jin sighs that she’ll wait for Ha-ri to talk to her, since she asked for time. She figures her friend must have a reason for lying to Sung-joon, just as she did back in the beginning. Shin-hyuk says he’s jealous of Ha-ri, enacting a hilarious bitch-fight like most women would do, saying that he wishes he had a friend like Hye-jin.

But Hye-jin just says that this is her friend, and Shin-hyuk offers her a ride. She notices he’s not on his bike, but he deflects her questions and takes her home. She thanks him, glad to have a friend like him at times like this.

He kids like usual, but does turn a bit serious as he asks if she plans to go to Sung-joon when this is all straightened out. She admits for the first time that she likes Sung-joon, sure that he feels the same about her, and that she’d like to be with him. This stings, but Shin-hyuk accepts it and throws her a little fistbump and a “Fighting!”

Hye-jin goes inside to find Ha-ri gluing the soles back on her damaged shoes, but they fall apart anyway so she offers to buy Hye-jin new ones. Hye-jin accepts her offer, which is unusual, but she just tells Ha-ri that of course — she’s her friend.

Home alone with his thoughts, Sung-joon says to a photo of his mother that this is the first time that he’s driven in the rain and not thought about the day she died. Hye-jin is also feeling contemplative as she sits in bed, pondering her puzzle piece.

The next morning, there’s an awkward moment when they run into each other outside the coffee shop and wonder what to say. Sung-joon takes the direct route and offers to buy her coffee, and doesn’t accept her no for an answer. He’s a lot calmer than she is, especially when he admits that he couldn’t sleep because of what happened last night.

Hye-jin spots Shin-hyuk on his way to work and claims to need to speak to him, rushing out of there like her butt’s on fire. She wails to Shin-hyuk that Sung-joon wants to talk but she feels like she’s going nuts, so he pretends to be talking with her as Sung-joon watches them suspiciously. They’re not fooling him one bit.

Of course, Hye-jin still has to work with Sung-joon, and she balks when she finds him in the meeting room when she needs to go in. She hides behind her coworkers when they head in for the meeting, terrified to be alone with Sung-joon even for a moment.

During today’s meeting, Sung-joon’s gaze bores holes in Hye-jin’s head, while she tries (and fails) to pretend she doesn’t notice. After the meeting he tells her to bring the minutes to him as soon as possible, and as soon as she does, his hug from the night before plays through her mind in romantic slow motion. Several times, ha.

She tries to scoot out of there but he tells her to stay until he’s done reading, and when her chair sits too low, he comes around to raise it for her. Of course, this requires him leaning in very close and touching her shoulder, and Hye-jin shakes so hard she looks like she’s going to explode. HAHA, he raises it all the way, so that she’s sitting higher than him.

Sung-joon starts to bring up last night, but Hye-jin jumps up, claiming that Shin-hyuk needs something from her. She tries to escape and is foiled by the door, and Sung-joon has to help her again — by opening the other door. How embarrassing. But when she leaves, Sung-joon heaves a sigh like he’s experiencing the same nerves Hye-jin is having. So cute.

Chief Editor Kim comes to remind Sung-joon about a dinner meeting tonight with a designer, giving him a particular suit of theirs to wear. HAHA, she tries to make the meeting sound like a date between them, but Sung-joon just gives her his “I don’t think so” face.

The mysterious novelist Ten posts a message that they’ll be meeting with fans in three weeks, to coincide with the release of their new book. Ten’s publisher wants Most to review the new book, titled “Memory,” which is Shin-hyuk’s wheelhouse. He complains, saying that Ten is too famous, and it’s no fun reviewing famous writers’ work.

Chief Editor Kim swans through the room speaking French on her phone, and the Most team discuss how she’s actually a lot smarter and more capable than they originally thought. They wonder about her true identity, but I don’t think she’s nearly as deep as they think, hee.

Everyone heads out for lunch, but Shin-hyuk is missing so Hye-jin hangs back to wait for him. But when she calls him, a woman answers and refers to him as “the patient,” and Hye-jin finds him outside heading back from a follow-up at the hospital. She pesters Shin-hyuk to tell her how he got hurt, but he just wants to go eat.

Sung-joon gets a call from Hye-jin’s younger sister Hye-rin, and he treats her to lunch indulgently. He laughs at her ordering like a tiny little adult, and marvels over her resemblance to her sister at her age. Hye-rin is offended, insisting that she’s much prettier than her sister, though she allows that Hye-jin is strong and has a good personality.

HA, Shin-hyuk whines and moans over his hurt arm at lunch, demanding that Hye-jin feed him. He still won’t tell her how he was injured, but he’s so adorable begging to be fed that she can’t stay angry at him.

After lunch, Shin-hyuk finally admitsthat he crashed his motorcycle. Hye-jin demands he hand over the keys, declaring it too dangerous and forbidding him to ride it again, but he just laughs at her. He half-jokes that she shouldn’t ask that if she has no intention of dating him, because it gets his hopes up. Aww, his mouth is smiling but his eyes are so sad.

Ha-ri helps a foreign hotel guest find a new tie after spilling coffee on his, and he mentions how touched he was to her boss. She’s told to expect a reward for going above and beyond to make the guest happy.

Sung-joon goes home for the weekend, leaving the suit Chief Editor Kim told him to wear behind at the office. She enlists Hye-jin to take it to him at home, so she tries to drop it off at the desk of his hotel, but he sees her and blows her cover.

He invites her in for tea but she declines, and he asks if he makes her uncomfortable. She doesn’t want to admit it, so she’s roped into having tea before she goes. She gulps down the hot tea (ouch!) and gasps, but she just wants out of there badly.

Sung-joon has something to say, but Hye-jin tries to write last night off as him just being worried for a colleague. He says blandly that he wouldn’t do that — he came running because it was her. Okay, awwww.

He softly tells her that at first he was annoyed by her, but at some point, he began to like spending time with her. But caring about her made him feel like a bad person, so he tried to dislike her. But after last night, he can’t deny it anymore, and acknowledges that something about her shakes him up. With trembling hands, Hye-jin proceeds to pour tea all over herself, so Sung-joon brings her a sweatshirt to change into.

She puts on the sweatshirt (which hilariously says COURAGE) but then she’s too nervous to go back out there. Sung-joon calls her out, and they both seem to realize the intensely intimate fact of her wearing his clothing. He grabs her wrist when she tries to walk past him, but only so that he can roll up the long sleeves for her. Sweet.

He apologizes for making her uncomfortable, and says that he didn’t admit his feelings so that they could do something about it. He just wanted her to know. He says that she reminds him of something that he’s known a long time. Somehow, when he’s with her, he becomes honest to a fault.

He tells Hye-jin that she makes him want to show his true self, and talk about himself, but he stops when he notices her eyes welling up with tears. She tells him that he didn’t say anything wrong, and he offers her a ride home. But when he goes to get his keys, she slips out.

When Shin-hyuk finds out that Hye-jin was sent to Sung-joon’s place on an errand, he shows up at Sung-joon’s with a giant smile, looking for her. He grabs a beer that he left in Sung-joon’s fridge, but Sung-joon smacks it out of his hand and demands to know why he’s following Hye-jin around.

Shin-hyuk says he’s sort of her guardian oppa, and turns the same question on Sung-joon. Is he her black knight who rides through the rain to save her? Sung-joon counters that at least he doesn’t make his feelings into a joke like a coward, and Shin-hyuk takes his leave. But in the hall, he drops the smile and his eyes go hard.

Joon-woo and Seul go to dinner, though she internally complains about always going to the same hole-in-the-wall restaurant. He notices her struggle with the spicy food and says he’ll have to come with someone else from now on, but she insists she loves it.

He cleans up food she’d spit out while she protests that it’s dirty, but he just says it’s not dirty, because it was hers. She asks if he likes her, and he’s all Yeah, you didn’t know? When he confirms that they’re officially dating, she wants a kiss, so he tosses her a little peck. HA. These two are adorable.

Shin-hyuk and Ha-ri talk over a beer at their convenience store, where he asks her if he can meddle in her life one more time. He tells her that Hye-jin knows everything, and that she’s waiting for Ha-ri to tell her the truth first. Ha-ri goes home, but she’s too ashamed to go inside, where she knows she’ll have to face Hye-jin.

When she finally goes inside, Hye-jin is there, looking at the shoes Ha-ri tried to fix for her. Ha-ri tells her friend that tomorrow, she’ll go back to where she belongs, asking for just one more day. She thanks Hye-jin for waiting for her, and for letting her tell her herself.

Hye-jin finally interviews the children’s book author, who notices that she knows a lot about fairy tales. Hye-jin admits that when she was young she wanted to write children’s books, too. The author encourages her not to give up and gives her a copy of her book as a gift.

Hye-jin reads the book, and as she walks, she sees that there’s a Renoir exhibit nearby. She stops in and finds “Dance in the Country,” smiling at the little hidden girl. Suddenly she’s joined by Sung-joon, and they both smile to see the other here.

Some schoolchildren come by and one comments that Sung-joon is wearing the same scarf they wear with their uniform, and he takes it off, embarrassed. But Hye-jin champions him and says that he’s very stylish, and he puts it back on with a smile. The kids tease that she must loooove that ajusshi, making both of them look around nervously.

A couple asks Hye-jin to take their picture posing as the dancing couple, and offer to take one of her and Sung-joon in return. Hye-jin waves them off but Sung-joon whips out his phone, HA.

He offers her a ride home on his way to his meeting, but she’s headed back to the office to work on her article. She says she’ll see him tomorrow, but it’s Sunday — “But even so, I’ll see you tomorrow.”

On the drive to his meeting, Ha-ri calls Sung-joon to ask him to meet tonight. He says his meeting will run late and starts to offer to see her tomorrow, but he stops and agrees, even if it’s late. He also has something to talk to her about.

Hye-jin sees Shin-hyuk in the elevator when she gets back to the office, but only Poong-ho is in the office when she goes upstairs. He mentions that Shin-hyuk went after her when her car broke down, which is news to her. She realizes that this must have been when he crashed his motorcycle, and runs out to find him.

She catches him outside and asks if he came to find her and had his accident, and he just gives her the saddest look. It’s a struggle to paste on his trademark grin, but he does, and admits that that’s what happened. He asks if she feels burdened, and says good, she should feel sorry towards him. He wants her to be worried about him, too. Dammit, he’s breaking my heart right now.

He plays her promise to grant him three requests, and decides to call in his third favor. He grabs her in a hug and tells her, serious this time, that he doesn’t think of her as a friend. He doesn’t ever want to be friends.

Sung-joon wraps up his meeting and calls Ha-ri, but she’s gone to work for a bit and offers to meet him later. She finishes up her work and starts to call Sung-joon, but he’s already there, right behind her. And he’s just heard her boss call her by her real name.

In voiceover, Hye-jin repeats that when we’re about to tell the truth, we can end up hesitating. And sometimes, that hesitation costs you the chance to tell the truth.

Sung-joon walks up to Ha-ri looking stricken, and says her name, “Min Ha-ri. Who are you?”

COMMENTS

Well, I can’t say that I feel bad for Ha-ri exactly, because it’s true that this is a situation of her own making. I think even she understands that. But Hye-jin’s words are so true, that her hesitation when she decided to tell the truth resulted in her being caught and not given the chance to come clean on her own. It’s going to make the fallout that much worse, because you can say all day that you meant to tell the truth, but it rings false when you’re caught out while still perpetuating a lie. She’s had several opportunities to give him that letter and at least come out of this holding her head up that she did the right thing eventually, but now, I don’t think she’s going to get out of this so easily.

As for Hye-jin, it’s so like her to find out that Ha-ri has been lying to Sung-joon and to her, and to trust her enough to come to her in her own time. As outsiders looking in, it’s hard to understand that kind of trust… but knowing Ha-ri and Hye-jin’s lifelong relationship, I can understand why Hye-jin is willing to give Ha-ri that chance. She knows her better than anyone — she knows that Ha-ri wouldn’t do something like this lightly, and she also knows that she won’t be able to sustain it. She trusts their friendship, and that Ha-ri loves her enough to come to her when she’s ready to confess. And she was right, though it’s a shame that Ha-ri waited a little too long.

I’m glad Sung-joon finally knows for real, at least as much as that Ha-ri isn’t his Hye-jin. It was difficult to watch him feeling like he was betraying his first love, by falling for someone else. Of course we know he’s falling for his real first love all over again, but he doesn’t know that, and the guilt he feels seems so painful that he can’t even enjoy the fact that he truly is falling in love. He’s been so attached to the idea that he was going to find Hye-jin and be with her, which really hasn’t been a healthy thing for Sung-joon emotionally. But I can’t help but look forward to the moment when he discovers that he’s actually gotten what he’s wanted his whole life — to make his first love, his last love.

But in the meantime, I adore how he treats Hye-jin now that he’s confessed that he has feelings for her. Just the simple act of rolling up her sleeves was so sweet and tender, and somehow vulnerable. For a closed-up guy like Sung-joon to not only admit feelings for a woman that even he’s surprised affects him so much, but perform even that tiny service for her, is a very moving thing. I appreciate that he’s admitted that the way he treated her before was wrong, and I’m happy to be seeing some personal growth on his part. Nobody is perfect, and Sung-joon is under tremendous pressure from multiple sources, so I can forgive him now that he’s genuinely apologized. It’s interesting that the woman he thinks is his first love makes him even more closed-up… but without even knowing the truth, it’s the woman who truly is his old friend who makes him soften, and want to be better. So for Sung-joon’s emotional health, I’m happy that he now knows that Ha-ri is not his old friend, and he can move forward with Hye-jin without guilt.

Some of the scenes don't make sense at all. Why did Sungjoon meet the little sister? Completely random, as is SH's visit at SJ's apartment. Why?
I have no tolerance for Hari anymore, I don't even care. And we're supposed to care because Hyejin cares but why?

little sisiter and sung joon met before, i think in episode 4 or 5, they didn't have time to talk much because HJ made a fake call to sung joon, then sung joon gave his business card to sister to call any time, so she took the chance this time to have meal.
shin hyuk got to know that hye jin went to sung joons apartments to deliver his suit. anyway he is in love with hye jin, he went their with curious.

Yeah. I remember that. But everything is so artificial, nothing organic. just.. here. this is a scene where they are having lunch, she almost says it all but he's again too aloof to catch anything what other people are saying to him. never listens. anyways. it's jut there to be there so that there would be a reason for the scene at the parents' house. That's what I meant.
And plot wise SH visit didn't do anything.
I see why these scenes are there but still it leaves me asking why why why.. If you get my drift..

It did. She almost spilled the beans. She even said "how's working with my sister at your compa--" So that was the fake out. And then he caught Ha-ri at the end instead. And it laid groundwork for the next episode too.

Also in a previous episode when they were at the countryside restaurant, Sung-joon admitted that he had no friends in Korea (no one to call to ask for help, to eat with, for ask for money). So Hye-ri calling him out for lunch was his first expansion of social circle.

Yes yes, she only showed it to him. After that in that same episode Hari showed him the piece, when he framed the puzzle back it was still missing that piece. It also makes sense that is why Hye Jin didn't miss that puzzle in her room. Else she would have asked Hari about it and wouldn't be so clueless till now.

Let me explain the scene with the little sister and SJ. The little sister, Hye Rin, called Seong Joon right after the scene where Kim Ra Ra was basically hitting on him. She probably wanted to meet him again so she could be spoilt since he said he'd buy her whatever she wanted the last time they med in EP 4/5. But the scene was probably there so the actress could get more screen time and it was just teasing us since SJ missed an opportunity to learn the truth.

Since now it ends on ep 11, in the middle of angst, my excitement to watch the next episode dropped considerably. Argh, can't stand noble idiocy.

I came here after watching 11th episode, now i really don't like shin hyuk,i feel he is kind a wolf wearing a lamb skin.but i still adore his funny moments.
sung joon's acting is really really good, he is doing emotional parts with out overacting just naturally, Lee jun ki is the only actor i knew who could play emotionally but some times he is overacting.i am glad about PSJ, hope he will get more projects
and Mrs ra ru or ru ru , has she fallen for sung joon? it is really funny part.

i just watched ep 11 and your so right, i absolutely love PSJ, his my fav actor right after Ji sung. not only is seo joon good at comedy but he really nails it when it comes to dramatic and emotional acting as well. i love the way he plays such a closed off, reserved, awkward, yet dorky and innocent character. lol so many ways to describe him. there is something about him that i cant help but be drawn to. well his done well for himself since he debut in 2011 and his a fast rising star. i hope he continues to do well in the future, he really deserves it. it takes a lot for me to be so taken with a actor but PSJ has done it for me. i've actually liked him since bang yong guks i remember mv.

He's like thunder light, came from nowhere in the middle of drama but his random placement in any role "feels" sooo righttt and smoothhh, is like...exactly where he belongs..

cz model/good looking-guy turns actor usually get bashed or doubted for their real talent and solely counts on their look only, even their acting itself in chopping board already..

But watching him in KMHM and SWP, everything never been so assuring and no slight doubts.. lol

i would be worried if he's all joking n happy right after being rejected. the way he reacted shows that he's human too. a lot of bestfriends act that way when fighting. but not for long. i believe their friendship is precious to shin hyuk so i'm sure he'll come around and be the awesome friend he has always been to Hye Jin. Unless the writer really intend to go 360 to make audience hate that lovable character all of a sudden. so saying he's a wolf wearing a lamb skin is too much imho. he's being sincere at being her friend since the very beginning anyway. it is not that he has hidden intention when he treated her nicely before he realizes he likes her.

Why would he be the one to need space when he's the one who keeps inserting himself into Hye Jin's life?

I'm a guy, and I've been rejected by close friends twice. I didn't need space, because I valued the friendship as much as I valued any romantic feelings I had. Distancing yourself implies that you were a fake friend: You were just looking for a romantic relationship from the start.

Okay I'm sure I won't be the only one who noticed this - but isn't the puzzle piece of that little hidden girl with Sung Joon? Like, didn't Ha-ri give it to him or something? How did Hye-jin get it back?
Maybe I missed an episode?!! Could someone tell me I'm wrong and that the writer didn't make this mistake in this otherwise amazing show?
The leads once again show their chemistry. They should just act together forever (I'm kidding but I really don't mind).
Thanks Lollypip!

I don't really think Hari gave it to SJ, she only showed it to him, some kind of proof. It was Hye Jin's, SJ gave it to her as a memento. And I don't really think Hye Jin wouldn't know if it was missing, I mean that puzzle piece means alot to her. Hari would be pure evil to steal that.

Somebody has mentioned this before. But, the piece that is missing in episode #6 has the wrong shape. Is that a "stunt puzzle" or is it significant? Probably just a mistake in production. lol

Haven't noticed that the shape wasn't the same in ep 6. HAHAHA. OMG. But still, the part that was missing was the peeping noona. Yes, prolly a mistake in the props. 'Cause they corrected it in this episode. Laughing so hard at this mistake. Hahaha. Unless SJ have lots of puzzle, I mean same puzzle, with the same missing piece or part lying around and likes to change the one he displays at his pad every now and then. LOL

Haha. They even may have had a "stunt onion". The crying onion in the photo sent to Hye Jin did not seem to be the same one that was on her desk at work. I could be wrong. Also, at the end of this episode one person says "HaRi shi" but another addresses her as "Min HaRi shi". Was that an oversight or is that significant somehow? lol

0

@YoMe!

"Min" is Hari's surname (last name), and in the workplace of the Korean society, co-workers with higher status than you would address you with your whole name, not just simply your name, that is why in that scene, her co-worker (presumably with a high position/ status) called her by her full name, whereas her other co-worker simply called her by name, because, again, presumably, that co-worker has the same status (and is probably the the same age/older) as Hari :)
That's how I see and understand it, and don't think it was a mistake or ever sight of the writer(s)
I hope this explains it?

0

Thanks for the reply. I didn't explain the scene fully. I was talking about when her boss praised her for doing a great job with the very important client. Her boss called her Ha Ri shi. Sung Joon was there to overhear that. However, he referred to her as Min Ha Ri shi. How did he know? That's all. Its trivial, I know.

All characters did some development in this except Ha ri.
Sung joon realized his feelings for hye jin and faced it (love him being sweet and kind )
Shin hyuk stopped goofing off and started being serious confess and move on so he could be less hurt.
It's funny how these two guys like to dig their own grave.
First shin hyuk why did you have to ask sung joon that he had feelings for hye jin when he knew she had loves him and that doesn't help you.
Sung joon why do care if shin hyuk is goofing off with his feelings when he was all being mean shin hyuk was by her side all the time.
Still these guys makes me laugh hard one by making crazy faces and another with serious face.
Hye jin 's trust for ha ri where can i get such a friend.
Ha ri she brought this on herself so she deserves it...
Next episode is boring.. Thanks mbc for saving me from that cliffhanger...

i loved this ep and i just came back from ep 11 and boy its not the lovey dovey ep i was expecting but i loved it anyways, idk melo/angst is my kind of thing plus i felt it was really good for the onion couple and we got to see the aftermath of the girls friendship, it was interesting how they took it, it fits in with HJ character but also shows he selflessness as being a flaw at the same time i understand what she is trying to do with HR. but that why i love it, the characters are complicated. im just gonna wait till ep 11 recap to talk about all this stuff, cause i feel like a lot happened to our characters

back to ep 10, i love how SJ character is so straightforward and honest, he was trying so hard in this ep to talk about the hug and his feelings but HJ kept on running away. also PSJ acting was so on point as it always seems to be. particularly in the hug scene, where he kept saying he didnt know about the rain. it was a really nice moment when he was talking to his mum in the picture as well. i nearly choked when he said he didnt sleep cause he was thinking of what happened last night. i also liked how HJ said he did that because she was his colleague and he said nope i did it because it was you, i was like my god this guy, someone stop him, honestly i would've melted on the spot.

also i laughed out loud so much when HJ drank that hot as hell tea and started to talk like smeagle from Lotr. i swear jung eum is awesome. when they were at the gallery i found it so sweet, i felt their natural ease with one another and chemistry and their reaction to the little kids saying there were in love was funny. gotta love kids.

as for SH sucks for him but he knew this for a while, lol maybe its just me but i dont get second male lead syndrome, although i also like SH but kinda wish is wasnt so flawless. i like my characters to have some flaws. and HR tsk tsk, girl you dug your own grave, but i still like HJ seems to care about her and have some sympathy. i like her character a lot which maybe strange for some, but its complex.
also love HJ she is such a darling of a character, most women in her position would have blasted their friend. but she cares so much for HR, she is her family and sister and they also have a special connection

ok so the sleeve rolling scene, i found quit intimate and i couldnt take my eyes of SJ lol, what SJ was saying really hit me right in the heart. gotta say guy is hella good with his words and it feels so sincere as well. his come such a long way, i feel like i was on a journey in falling in love with him as well lol.

one more thing to add, PSJ is extremely hot when his wet. that is all :D

AGREE with everything you said about Park Seo-joon (my dear oppa!) I get that he's not the loud, colorful character in this show, but PSJ is so good at subtleties and displaying emotion with the slightest movement. Like in the rain, when he was just staring, you could see the worry and that he was finally in love with her. At the end, when confronting Ha-ri, you could see the slight anger just underneath his face. Ugh, so good.

And the rolling sleeves scene was quite special. I would love to see kisses (another thing PSJ is good at), but I just adore how much he cares about her feelings and her well-being.

"...maybe its just me but i dont get second male lead syndrome, although i also like SH but kinda wish is wasnt so flawless."

I am with you in this. Of course, I can't help it when a 2nd male lead is being such a sweet puppy, and I end up falling for him, too. But I don't subscribe to this growing view that they are supposedly the "better" choice. What? Because they're sweet, and so, worse, one wrong thing the male lead does makes him a colossal a-hole?

There is also one thing that I have been noticing in Korean dramas. I am very curious about their meaning of, "I want you to be bothered by me. I want you to be sorry to me." This kind of line gives me the impression of 'trapping the girl.' Because it looks to me like the guys is telling her that she has a sort of an obligation to give him a chance, and she has no choice but to do so.

Anyway, I do live Shin-hyuk and his quirks, but I guess from the get-go, I just never wavered on my rooting for Sung-joon. I have high hope that they will give Shin-hyuk that happiness that he wants... it's just not with this girl that he likes right now.

Also, I really love Hwang Jung-eum in this role. I'm glad you mentioned that LOTR reference. She's so cool in that. I can't wait for the 11th episode to discuss about that street scene. I really loved her expressions during that moment.

Ugh, and Park Seo-joon. I love this guy. So much.

I think the "feel sorry for me" sentiment you're talking about is quite sad. Not in the I'm-gonna-cry way, but the almost-pathetic way. It feels like plea of desperation knowing that what you're pleading for won't happen. Someone strong like Hye-jin would never fall for it, which is why it's sad to me.

I just took it as "I've fallen for you and I want you to fall for me too." It's just a different way of expressing the situation than we would in the West since typically the people in these dramas keep everything bottled up until the cork pops and they have to confess.

no its totally cool lol, i like SH i think his funny as heck and nice guy, i've just always been that way when it came to 2nd lead, i know SJ was a mean bean at the start, but like you i never wavered primarily cause i know 2nd leads are designed to be seen as the perfect and better counterpart to the 1st lead. even if they are wonderful and cute. im thinking his character will get more stuff after ep 11 which is great, no matter what i like my characters to have flaws and positives, its just more meaningful to me personally, and it helps me connect better to them.

of coursei hope SH gets a happy ending, but he seems to be in the same situation as HR in the feelings department of someone they cant have.

I agree a million percent! Although such a percentage may not be possible lol. I really love SJ's character. It's like I've been falling for him more and more. Why can't leads be this honest and straightforward? He went from denial and big time struggling with his feelings to this sincere and honest guy. His character development has been no joke and I really appreciate the how how he's written. Ugh ep 11 recap where are you...I can't wait for it.

Also, I never got SLS either oddly. Maybe, because I like what the leads have. They're all intense and lovely when they're together. So I like how the show is increasing their time together as the show progresses.

I really love this episode because of the chemistry between our two leads. It is perfect and very sweet. It can easily be my most favorite episode so far, but I have a couple of thoughts to share. Please prove me wrong, because I don't want to dislike Sung Joon.
1) When Hari confessed her feelings to Sung Joon, he doesn't say anything but hugs her and says that he won't make her concerned anymore. So I assume they are dating. Nevertheless, he goes to Hye Jin and hugs her during the rain without any constraint. He even repeatedly tries to meet and confesses his feelings to Hye-Jin. It is very nice to watch, but technically shouldn't he contact Hari first to say how he wants to break up? Wasn't he cheating on Hari? Of course, he feels guilty, but that doesn't justify his action. And, he is still considered by some viewers as the "cool" guy. No, not cool.
2) I would be more happy if Hye Jin's hair gets messed up again like how it always does under that scene rain. I would be more happy if her makeup disappeared because of the water and her freckles show up because that what is logical.

for #1, what you're saying is right, but Sung Joon was going to break up with Ha Ri this episode (i haven't really seen anyone mention this, so maybe they missed it or I read into it too much). He didn't know he was in love with Hye Jin until, as he said, when they were in the rain, so after he confessed he was going to break up with her.

for #2, i thought her hair was going to at least come back, but I think it's because her hair was chemically straightened and not straightened with heat *shrugs*. As for the makeup I have no clue, but I don't think she got that wet, maybe that was what they were going for.

Her hair did get a bit messy again, but it's been cut and processed so it's not the same extremes.

#1 I think Sung-joon only tried to confess his feelings in this episode. He was figuring it out the last episodes, and only realized it when he was rushing to find Hye-jin in the rain. Which is why, by the end of this episode, he wanted to talk to Ha-ri. Wasn't he mean to Hye-jin before he fired her because he was conflicted about his feelings? I think that was pretty much established.

#2 I am also curious about this, and I am actually waiting for her hair to get curled. But I just think, eh, what the hell? Maybe her hair got rebonded and permanently, and so, when it gets soaked, it doesn't go back to the vicious curls. As for the freckles, though, I don't know. Lol.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

For #1, I honestly didn't remember that they were "dating." I put that in quotes because he technically never said to her, "I like you. Let's date." And they weren't really communicating that last episode, and it's not like they were officially, exclusively boyfriend and girlfriend. So from my perspective, they weren't "dating."

He was going to tell her about his feelings when he found out the truth. So give him props for being decent and honest. It's not like he was screwing around behind her back. He was sorting out and confirming his feelings before he could properly tell her exactly why.

And truth be told, this "relationship" was built on Hye-jin's deceit, so I'm not bothered by it all. And I know that's not a real-world reaction, but this is only a show, just enjoy it!

This. Me too. I never assumed that they were officially dating. I don't even know what to call their set up.

As I remember, when Hari confessed, SJ didn't answer. Wc to me is clearly an "I don't feel the same way" answer. As Hari also interpreted.

As to the promise that he won't make her worry anymore? Hmm. For me it was something like, I won't hurt you. Knowing he knows what Hari feels for him.

But yeah, the part where he said "I also have something I want to tell you." does sounds like he was going to break up with her.

Actually this kind of makeup does exist. It's made for people with birthmarks or scars they want to hide. One brand name is Dermablend, and I use it to hide a burn. As confident as I am, sometimes it's just easier this way rather than put up with people's stares or comments. It allows you to live a normal life. So I can relate to Hye Jin's decision to take the easier path.

I like the episode cause this drama need some salt (maybe just me), it might be look like easy problem, but I understand it's hard, friendship and love (I know that feeling)

I am honestly disappointed Sung Joon found out on his own. He deserved to be told the truth and not have it unexpectedly hit him like a ton of bricks. I am equally disappointed Hye Jin found out about Hari on her own. If not for waiting for Hari's holier–than–thou reason, Hye Jin would have come clean long ago. I was raging when she refused to tell him. In. His. House. As. He. Confessed. On top of that, the reason Hye Jin so desperately wanted to hear never came. I can guarantee Hari would have never confessed had Shin Hyuk not told her Hye Jin already knew. She ought to look up the definition of "tomorrow" because every day is tomorrow to her. Hari should have sat Hye Jin down and admitted exactly how far her lie went, including the stolen borrowed puzzle piece, which I mistakenly assumed was given back to Sung Joon.

I would feel a bit cheated if Sung Joon does not get angry at Hye Jin for lying to him for at least an episode because no matter how you slice it, this was a betrayal from his best friend. He confided in her about things she already knew, yet pretended to be hearing for the first time, plus his character is one to lash out. Otherwise, what is the conflict in this drama? Can't only be about saving Most. Sung Joon's "I didn't tell you so we could do something about it" confession was utterly swoon-worthy, but Shin Hyuk's "I can never be friends" confession killed me. Hye Jin should get to keep both boys. Hari does not deserve Consolation Prize Shin Hyuk whom like Sung Joon, will always love Jackson more. Thanks lots for the recap, LollyPip!

Wow. I do love your sentiments. Though I kinda expected it to be revealed that way honestly. As you said, Hari wouldn't have done it, with or without a push from anyone.

And I actually hate that she wanted to tell SJ first, I mean come on. Who does that? Between SJ & HJ, HJ would have been betrayed more right? SHE'S HER FREAKING BEST FRIEND, been with her, her whole life, SJ came out on the picture like what? For just 2 mos? Ugh. I so wanted to feel bad for her, but she keeps on putting the "victim-guilty" facade.

I watched it on live stream, and I was screaming at his confession. Even though I couldn't understand anything. Their face conveys their emotions. They were that good.

I think it makes sense that Ha-ri should tell Sung-joon first. I see it as getting rid of the smaller problem first, and then dealing with the bigger one. As much as we sigh at Ha-ri, it was important that she end the charade with him because it showed her conscience appearing. It was her decision to stop (though she should've tried harder before and done it earlier), and she probably felt better knowing that she was going to end it without feeling like she was forced to (although that kind of happened anyway).

Hye-jin's voiceover about hesitation is pretty much Ha-ri all the time.

Very good point there. Seeing it from Hari's perspective.

The way I saw it wc I think was wrong is that she wanted to clear her name with SJ first, like she was more concerned with SJ. The thing is, there was a point that she knew that HJ already find out about the deceit. If I was her I'd probably explained right away but that would totally look likes she's making up excuses. But it makes sense that she wasn't ready for HJ's reaction.

My comments are purely based from "If I were Hye Jin". I do have this thing where when Im so inlove with a drama, I put myself as the lead character. LOL

I could be wrong but I think the character of HJ has acne rosacea ( not that it matters). HJ probably used BB cream to cover up/ smooth over her face since there were scenes when she's home and the rosy skins were shown.
What I think the director forgot was the hair! What happened to the frizz after the soaking rain scene??? But like most of us, my attention was only to the sweet intimate scene when SJ rolled the sleeves for HJ( and completely ignoring the oops).

somehow, I find myself empathizing more on Shin-Hyuk than the other characters in the show.

from the get-go, SH had done a lot of things to HJ that I find more sincere and heartfelt (from say, helping her take care of sick Sung-Joon to telling Ha-Ri to confess everything, etc.) and what's more heartbreaking is that he doesn't ask anything in return.

of course, he won't end up with HJ, but I do hope he gets his redemption from his budding friendship with HR because if not, I guess I would have to let go of this show.

Is there a theme of shoe metaphors among the girls? Before we had Ha Ri determined to own shoes that did not fit and which would hurt her. True to life in her dating decisions, always going for the wrong fit.

This episode we have her trying to fix her friend's old shoes, but doing it badly and failing. What might it be saying about her relationship with Hye Jin from now on? :)

I like reading recaps here but have never felt so motivated to move my fingers until this episode.

This is the first time my heart goes out to the second lead.
Love the opening scene where Shin Hyuk limping back in the rain with blood trickling down his hand. He was so adorably sweet that I didn't really focus on Sung-Joon.

Yes, I prefer Hye-Jin with her sesame-sprinkled cheeks and messy hair. Too bad in our current society our notion of beauty got nothing to do with individuality.

Thank you LollyPip for the recaps!

I may or may not have squealed excitedly to myself when I saw that you had posted a recap up for episode 10! There were so many cute awkward moments between our OTP and I'm glad Sung Joon finally admits to his feelings for Hye Jin, which I think definitely shows how they feel about each other even when he doesn't know that she's the Hye Jin from his childhood.
Second male lead sadness is in full swing here! What is it with second male leads that always gets us down.
I really admire Hye Jin for giving Ha Ri a chance. I know that she was the one to push Ha Ri in Sung Joon's direction first but she had thought that Ha Ri ended it a loong time ago when things weren't working out. I've seen other dramas where a friendship like this would get tossed to the side because of the betrayal.
A CLIFF HANGER! I can't wait until the next episode comes out.

Hye Jin's a really good friend, a real one. Can't hardly find that nowadays. I'd rather get heartbroken from a guy than having to breakup with my bestfriend. I believe they would survive this.

Good news chinggu, ep 11 is out. But subs aren't 100% complete yet. Ugh.

This was soooo goood! This would've been a worthy cliffhanger to leave for a week, so I'm just going to be enjoy having them resolved within a day.

First of all, can we just clap for Sung-joon and his honesty? I love Korean dramas, but I can't remember the last time the male lead told the female lead why he loved her. He didn't confess while yelling at her, he didn't try to force his lips on hers, he was considerate of HER feelings, and most importantly he wasn't a noble idiot because of love. He is just precious, and I am still just in awe of the writer for developing his character as such.

(And on a shallow note, how hot did Park Seo-joon look in the rain? And when he's staring intensely? Swoon.)

Second, Shin-hyuk is a great second lead. I mainly love his characterization, which lets me feel sad for him. I appreciate his struggle and how he handles it. He loves Hye-jin, knows she doesn't reciprocate, can be petty about her being with Sung-joon, but supports Hye-jin anyway, like when he told Ha-ri that she knew. I also appreciate his honesty at the end, even though it was too late.

Third, I completely understand Hye-jin's reaction to Ha-ri's deceit. It's what I expected of her and why I love her character so much.

I loved that Hye-jin found out about Ha-ri right away in the beginning of the episode because it just lets us breathe in her reaction and naturally agree with it. That's my take anyway. I mean, this show is predictable. We know the major plot points that are going to happen, but I love when they come unexpectedly (like in Episode 11 as well). I thought Hye-jin's discovery would come at the end of an episode, so I loved having two big moments kind of bookend an episode. I definitely was going "OMG! EEEEEEE!" both times.
