So continuing from last time, Tae Yoon has Hye Na pinned up against the wall, when Dong Chan comes to the rescue and saves her. The two then storm off because Hye Na was embarrassed by the situation. Now of course Hye Na is not one to take such an event kindly. She proceeds to take out her frustration on everyone, no one is spared. She takes it out on Dong Chan, her maids, a kendo dummy, and even shopping.
Though while shopping she runs upon the best relief for her anger. She happens to meet the guy who sent the gangsters after her and Dong Chan, Park Jung Shik. Now the poor bastard gets to see what a pissed off Hye Na can do to a wimp like him. She hits him with a bag and throws insults at him. Jung Shik, with his over inflated ego, claims he has put up with her as much as he can and prepares to strike Hye Na. However, Dong Chan steps in the way and takes the blow for his master. This event jsut pisses Hye Na off even more and she throws a bracelet at Jung Shik’s nose further causing it to bleed. Using the opportunity, Dong Chan tackles Jung Shik and the two begin to fight. Moments later, Tae Yoon arrives and breaks up the fight.
Jung Shik calls his lawyer and Tae Yoon steps in for Hye Na. Even though both lawyers agree that both sides are responsible, Jung Shik wants to sking Hye Na alive for embarrassing him three times now. Unfortunately for Jung Shik, Tae Yoon throws out his trump card. He proceeds to list out the possible charges against Jung Shik if he presses charges. On top of that, Tae Yoon threatens to use his family and Hye Na’s family influence to prove all the charges against Jung Shik. This forces Jung Shik to tuck his tail between his legs and run off, hopefully for the last time. I have gotten tired of that guy already.
Tae Yoon uses the opportunity to sit down and chat with Hye Na in order to apologize for what happened. He explains that he misunderstood her and that he does not know why he did such a thing to her. Ever the girl in love, Hye Na wholeheartedly excepts his apology. She even attempts to change Tae Yoon’s understanding of her by explaining that he had her all wrong. In reality she claims to be a philanthropist who does care about the ordinary person. As this is going on, Eui Joo is talking with Dong Chan, after bumping in to the group on the street. Eui Joo claims that she was worried about how Dong Chan may be trying to seduce Hye Na, therefore falling back to his old Gigolo ways. However, she feels that there is no reason to worry after seeing how Hye Na treats Dong Chan like crap, much to Dong Chan’s delight/dismay. And back at the mansion, Soo Ah’s father is chatting with Hye Na’s grandfather about how some company executives feel uncomfortable with Hye Na being the heir to the company. He also pulls out some pictures of Hye Na and Tae Yoon in the compromising position found at the beginning of the episode. These pictures infuriate Hye Na’s grandfather due to his new found dislike for Tae Yoon.
After their talks, everyone decides to head back home/work. Dong Chan takes Hye Na to the car, only to find out that it had been towed. To add more issues, Tae Yoon proposes to take Hye Na back home in Dong Chan’s place, as he goes and retrieves the car. What follows is a lovely little walk between Hye Na and Tae Yoon. Tae Yoon proposes to take the bus much to Hye Na’s surprise. Tae Yoon then grabs Hye Na’s hand and together they run after the bus. Through the bus incident, Tae Yoon and Hye Na grow even closer.
Hye Na finally returns home, but she is very late. She is eventually called to her grandfather, who then proceeds to attack her about her relationship with Tae Yoon. He forbids this relationship because Tae Yoon has turned against his own family and would also provide absolutely no benefit to the Kang San Group. To everyone’s surprise, Hye Na proclaims that she indeed loves Tae Yoon and how she cannot fall out of love with him. Her grandfather’s only solution to the issue is to send her abroad so that she forgets about Tae Yoon. Over hearing all of this, Dong Chan realizes that his position and plan are currently in jeopardy. He then follows Hye Na outside to talk to her. There Hye Na asks for his help, so that she can stay in Korea and be near Tae Yoon.
The next day, Hye Na is missing from the estate. This sends the entire mansion into a disarray. Everyone is searching for the missing Hye Na. As the search is going on, Eui Joo’s mother stops by to deliver the flowers that she has been contracted to bring. Much to her disdain she meets a problem. Since the mansion is in chaos, she is unable to hammer out an agreement with the management.
After returning home, Eui Joo’s mother is surprised to find Hye Na jump out of the back of her car. Hye Na then proceeds to call Dong Chan and tell him that she has arrived on the outside. Dong Chan then looks for an excuse to leave the mansion in order to meet up with Hye Na. He tells Manager Jang that he is going to Tae Yoon’s place in oder to look for Hye Na. Manager Jang decides to go along with him in order to meet this Tae Yoon, much to Dong Chan’s dismay.
After confronting Tae Yoon, Dong Chan has to think of another way to get away from Manager Jang. So he fakes receiving a call in which Eui Joo’s mother was involved in an accident. Using this as a pretense to leave, Dong Chan head over to Eui Joo’s house.
At Eui Joo’s house, Hye Na is having fun playing a betting game. When Dong Chan arrives, Hye Na prepares to leave for a hotel. But the ever logical Dong Chan tells her that she will have to stay in Eui Joo’s house in order to avoid being caught. He helps her settle in. However, Hye Na stumbles across Dong Chan’s old gigolo clothing. Dong Chan claims that he used to do Athletic Dancing, and that is the reason why he has a collection of flashy clothing. I’m not really sure who would buy that but whatever.
The story moves on with Dong Chan returning to the mansion and telling Hye Na’s grandfather that Hye Na refuses to leave. After Dong Chan leaves, Manager Jang tells Hye Na’s grandfather that he should let Hye Na stay so that he can extort things out of her. Manager Jang tells Hye Na’s grandfather that he feels that Tae Yoon has no feelings for Hye Na, so they do not need to worry about anything happening between the two. Manager Jang tells Dong Chan to go pick up Hye Na, much to Dong Chan’s surprise. The next day, Hye Na and her grandfather make a deal. Hye Na goes to work at the Kang San Group and her grandfather will then permit her relationship with Tae Yoon.
As Hye Na is en route to the office, everyone at the office is busy preparing for her. As she arrives she gets a lavish welcoming and proceeds to her office. Once inside she bumps into Soo Ah and they exchange some witty banter. Hye Na tells Eui Joo that if Soo Ah is ever bothering her to come see her. Soo Ah tells Dong Chan that if ever gets tired of Hye Na, she is always looking for a new attendant. After their exchange, Hye Na arrives in her office only to prepare to leave. She claims that she said she would only come to work, not actually work. She then receives a call from Tae Yoon, but the call is intercepted by Dong Chan. He tells her that he will coach her in the ways of seduction so that she can win over Tae Yoon. The only condition is that Hye Na completely listen to him.
That night, Tae Yoon calls Hye Na and asks her if she wants to go to his friends charity fundraiser. She is of course excited to go, but Dong Chan interferes. He tells her that she should reject the invitation in order to get Tae Yoon more infatuated with her. In reality though Dong Chan is just trying to keep the two apart. He even receives orders from Manager Jang to keep the two apart.
However the next day, Hye Na attempts to sneak out anyways. Dong Chan decides to take her only on the condition that she leaves after an hour in order to keep Tae Yoon hooked on her ephemeral image. When they arrive, Hye Na manages to get Dong Chan to leave her alone there for an hour. While there, she starts to connect with Tae Yoon. The two start growing on each other. Eventually, Tae Yoon is called up to the stage to sing. Of course he sucks at it. But to Hye Na, his singing is cute and charming. Peering through the window, Dong Chan is waiting for Hye Na. But as he looks in, he notices that Hye Na is happy with the way things are. He just cannot force himself to disturb her happiness.
At the end of the night, Hye Na is drunk. Therefore Dong Chan takes her home. On the way home, Dong Chan talks Hye Na to sleep. When they arrive at the mansion, Dong Chan stares off into Hye Na’s face and starts to show his feelings for her. But she wakes up before anything can happen. As they are walking back from the car, Hye Na tells Dong Chan that she is ready to take things to the next level. Dong Chan tells her that the next level is skinship. Hye Na claims that she does not mind as long as it is with Tae Yoon. However, she is still embarrassed by the mere thought of kissing. As she is off in some dream land, Dong Chan moves in and kisses her.
Now this episode really made me feel for a Tae Yoon x Hye Na ending. I just could not see how Dong Chan can move in between the two till the end of the episode. Ending on a kiss is a pretty good cliff hanger. Once again, I’m sorry for the late post. I’m just busy here on my end. As for this show, I will be continuing it. However, IRIS is coming out so my time blogging may become split between the two shows.
