This is the language challenged version!
The tax men are raiding JH’s offices. A press conference is held detailing the crimes of the chairman, and Grandma watches upset.
JH attends meeting with Chairman and the board (I think).Manager Park is very nervous during the meeting, especially when the chairman speaks to him. The Chairman clutches his chest in pain. Oh man, are they really going the “chaebol daddy gets sick” route? I hatez that.
Manager Park calls Na Yoon’s mum who says “Understood!” Suk Hui doesn’t look too happy. Na Yoon storms in angry.
Eun Seol cleans the office – paper is scattered everywhere. Ji Heon is angry and storms out. Eun Seol runs after him.
The other secretaries say something to MW’s secretary and Moo Won comes out, looking worried. He mentions her name.
Eun Seol manages to get into the lift with JH. But he’s mad at her. He keeps trying to avoid looking at her, so she grabs his face and forces him to look at her. Then some people come into the lift. The chairman is wheeled out in stretcher – it’s all pretend? Heh. The chairman yells at Eun Seol and Ji Heon pulls her aside. Jang gives instructions to the people pushing the stretcher. Reporters swarm the stretcher. They then surround Ji Heon who pushes himself out of the crowd to the car. He says something to the reporter. Eun Seol blocks their path. Ji Heon’s car drives away and he’s upset to see her surrounded and pushed around by the press.
The Chairman is in the hospital … in bed eating. But he looks rather healthy. Heh. Grandma pops in, and she’s scolding him.
Moo Won is talking to his mum. (Is it me or does Jaejoong look really tired?) Wish I know what he’s saying but he looks upset with her. I think he’s telling her to stop.
Na Yoon calls him and he meets her at the park. Na Yoon, I believe is telling Moo Won that her mother is behind the leak and Moo Won tells her that Eun Seol is going to be blamed for it. She gets upset. He hands her a handkerchief.
Ji Heon is in his study, remembering what Eun Seol is telling him.
Myung Ran is reading news about the incident with the tax officials. Eun Seol’s crying a bit and she talks to Myung Ran. Moo Won follows Na Yoon home. Eun Seol runs down to meet them. Na yoon excuses herself.
Eun Seol and Moo Won talk.Ji Heon appears and overhears what they’re saying … Moo Won says sorry for something. Eun Seol starts tearing up. Ji Heon looks hurt – probably because ES confided in MW when she didn’t with him despite how much he pleaded. Moo Won calls out Ji Heon’s name. Ji Heon leaves and Eun Seol runs after him, hugging him from behind. She says something to him and he turns around and cups her face and brushes her tears away… but he walks away. She marches past him. Moo Won watches them.
Eun Seol and Ji Heon are in the car. Ji Heon pulls over the car. And he’s all stern with her. He tells her to get out of the car? Hmmm. He’s really mad, huh?
Jang is being interrogated. Then it’s manager Park and then Eun Seol.
The chairman is being wheeled into the building. Maan … haha. Ji Heon stands stoicly beside him as the reporters bombard them with questions. Eun Seol watches them and Ji Heon gives her a small smile.
It’s Ji Heon’s turn to be interrogated. And then it’s Chairman! In the next shot he doesn’t have his coat and he looks angrier. Third shot – he looks really tired. Must be a really long interrogation.
Eun Seol waits at the side of the building. Manager Park runs out and she follows from behind eavesdropping as he talks to someone. She manhandles him and shows him a cellphone – she must’ve taped him. Heh.
She rolls up her sleeves and sucker punches him. Go girl! And then does it again – I think she’s “torturing” him for information. Manager Park finally speaks.
Just then a bunch of reporters run past them. The reporters surround Ji Heon. Eun Seol watches him get into the car … and he spots her.
Eun Seol watches a news report on the chairman, and he looks all weak and tired in a wheelchair.
What the? The chairman is in jail with Manager Park. They talk. The Chairman clutches his chest at one point. Really, don’t let him be sick.
Eun Seol and Myung Ran are at the prison where the chairman is taken to the hospital. Maybe for a real reason this time?
Jang tells Ji Heon something.
Na Yoon’s mum reads some reports Moo Won gives her. It doesn’t seem to please her. Could he be striking a bargain with her or something? Ah they’re discussing Eun Seol. Na Yoon comes in. She tears up as she listens in and runs out. Moo Won stops her.He then takes her out somewhere.
Eun Seol walks towards the hospital. She walks casually towards the VIP area and tells the guards that she’s a secretary but they won’t let her in and pushes her out. Next, she’s disguised as a doctor. Na Yoon and Moo Won sees her and wonders what she’s up to. Eun Seol manages to evade the guards and Moo Won and Na Yoon watches in amazement. Eun Seol enters a room while the guards wonder where she has gone to. They split up to find her.
She’s in the right room – she hears Ji Heon.
As Ji Heon and Chairman talks about Eun Seol, she listens from behind a screen. Eun Seol sneaks out…andleans against the door. The guards finally find her and drag her away.
Na Yoon and Moo Won talk outside. Eun Seol manages to escape again. MW and NY stop the guards – Na Yoon by threatening to bite him.
I really wish I knew what the chairman is telling Ji Heon. Darn.
Anyway, MW and NY runs after ES.
JH is driving home, and he’s pensive. Eun Seol broods, thinking about Ji Heon’s reaction to what the chairman told him and remembering what he told her in the car.
Ji Heon drives past Eun Seol sitting at the bus stand …
At the art gallery, NY’s mum and Suk Hui walk together. Myung Ran and Eun Seol march towards the women. The guards try to stop them but the two just beat them up Myung Ran holds them in a chokehold. Eun Seol confront the women. Suk Hui looks a wee guilty.
Suk Hui mutters something behind Eun Seol’s back and she hears it. she says something to her. The two leave … later they hug each other. ES gets a call and pushes MW away when she sees who it was.
JH is in his room … while ES puts on make up and sprays perfume on herself. She smiles at herself in the mirror. She walks towards Ji Heon who looks really serious. She takes her hand.
They are at the stables! Can I mention how hot Ji Heon looks in that trenchcoat thingy … They look at the horses. And Ji Heon is leading the horse she’s on and then they ride the horse together. They later have a picnic and feed each other food.
JH looks pensive as he watches her sleep. She wakes up. They hol hands in the park and then he suddenly lets her go and says something and she looks sad….
Ji Heon walks away and ES is in tears. MW talks to ES. ES, MR and NY bear hugs. ES cries when she sees something online.
This is what I call the “language-challenged recap”. I don’t understand Korean, but thanks to how expressive the actors are, it’s not hard to guess what’s going on. Until Rebel Souls gets her recap up, hope this tides you by!
Eun Seol gets mad at the boys and hits Ji Heon then threatens to hit Moo Won. And then out of frustration she hits herself. Or was it by accident, lol.
Myung Ran and Na Yoon’s watching wrestling, and Myung Ran hits Na Yoon who cries. Eun Seol comes in upset and bangs her head against a wall.
Ji Heon has a talk with Moo Won about Eun Seol. And Ji Heon gives Moo Won a bear hug and MW says, “Are you crazy?” and marches off. But Ji Heon looks pleased.
MW and his mum discusses about business. MW looks concerned, and mum is defensive. MW mum calls Manager Park – the spy.
Chairman’s watching TV, flipping channels. Grandma comes in looking not pleased. She comes over to whack him. They sit down and have a talk. I hear MW’s mum’s name so I assume it’s about the whole business deal last ep. They also talk a lot about Ji Heon.
Eun Seol is shocked to hear from the Chairman that Ji Heon left the car without his things. She sorts of scolds the chairman for letting it happen again, and he remarks: “Are you scolding me?” And she quickly apologises.
She then runs around the city in search of Ji Heon, nearly getting knocked down by a car and scraping her heel as a result of running around in her heels.
She finally finds him at night, calling out for her. But she’s not happy at all. “Why are you calling for me? Why?” she demands impatiently.
Ji Heon comes and hugs her, smiling. He thinks it is incredible that she appears whenever he calls for her – like some kind of superhero.
Eun Seol pushes him off angrily, snapping: “What superwoman?!” Ji Heon is shocked that she’s talking so rudely to him.
Chairman gets a call from Eun Seol that she’s found his “lost son”. The chairman barks at Ji Heon to return and decides to use reverse psychology and tells him not to come home. But it backfires on him when Ji Heon agrees not to come home and hangs up.
Meanwhile, Moo Won waits for Eun Seol. A waiter fetches him his phone and says that it was in his car. Moo Won finally reads the messages Eun Seol left for him about being late.
Poor Eun Seol doesn’t know what to say to Moo Won’s declaration. Like she doesn’t have enough man problems already. She blinks and nervously asks him if what he means is … Moo Won says yes, it means that he likes her.
He says that he’s happy when he’s with her. And Eun Seol suddenly thinks about the time she spent with Ji Heon and his many declarations of love to her. She shakes her head, wondering why she’s thinking of him at this time.
Moo Won tells her that he’s come to like her even more than he imagined, and Eun Seol sighs, and that’s when she spies Ji Heon at the window. He gestures at her to get out. She turns back to Moo Won and tells him that she can’t give her answer to him now as it’s hard for to say yes or no, and since she’s going to be dragged out soon…. Moo Won says that he will make arrangements for them to meet and for now, let them just get along like usual.
She excuses herself and runs outside to Ji Heon who tells her to go back to the office. She tries to he him to return with her to the office, but Ji Heon stubbornly insists that she leave.
In the cafe, Ji Heon tells Moo Won that he likes Eun Seol and that she’s special to him. Moo Won pipes up that he thinks the same way too. Ji Heon tells him that he will give up the company as long as he gives up on Eun Seol. He can’t live without Eun Seol. But Moo Won stubbornly insists that he needs her too because he needs comfort.
Eun Seol rushes back to the cafe when she spots two office workers mock fighting. It was then that she realised that the cousins could end up fighting.
In the aftermath of the kiss, Na Yoon pushes Moo Won away, saying that she won’t make the same mistake again.
Ji Heon and Eun Seol pull away and then stare at each other in a daze for a while … then her phone rings, and he quickly kneels, begging forgiveness while Eun Seol looks ready to clobber him. Later, they sit apart awkwardly on the sofa for a bit, and Eun Seol says she’ll forgive him for what he did. She reminds him that what he did is almost like what the pervert did to her on the bus. Ji Heon tells her that he doesn’t really like skinship, and the reason why he even did so was because he likes her.
Na Yoon and Moo Won stare at Ji Heon, who is smiling, and Eun Seol, who is having the time of her life on the Viking Ship ride.
Na Yoon finally recognises Eun Seol and demands, “She’s not just a secretary is she?”
When Eun Seol gets off the ride, she bumps into Na Yoon, causing her to smear ice-cream on her blouse. Angrily, Na Yoon marches behind Eun Seol and squashes her ice-cream onto jer butt. Everyone’s shocked – even Na Yoon. But she puts on a sly smile and tells Eun Seol that it’s an accident and that her hand “slipped”.
But Eun Seol is not taking this without a fight. She takes Moo Won’s ice cream and shoves it at Na Yoon’s butt while she’s talking to Ji Heon.
Na Yoon looks at Eun Seol in disbelief while Ji Heon looks on in amazement and Moo Won stifles a laugh. (The men must wonder what’s wrong with the womenfolk today.)
Eun Seol looks at Na Yoon with a faux innocent expression and says that she did it on purpose because Na Yoon did it on purpose too! Don’t you love her?
