POV DISCUSSION: Answer Me 1994 Episode 15


I really wish the writer stop playing games with us already, and reveal who is the husband, or give a direct clear clue. With this episode, it feels like Chilbong no longer stands a chance with Na Jeong, and I do not want to keep my hopes up any more, because with each episode, my heartbreak for Chilbong just gets deeper😦

Maybe 20+ episodes was too much of a stretch, because I really feel like they’re dragging the loveline, and making us go round and round in circles.

Trash’s cousin made us believe that she might have those supernatural powers, but today we found out that Na Jeong’s description was something she heard from Trash’s brother. However, when she said that there is no more bus, it really so happened that the bus broke down. So we got nowhere. Tsk. Then why would you introduce her as a character in the first place? Tsk.


This episode starts off with where we left off in Na Jeong’s house in 2013. Chilbong stands and look at the baseball…and we’re back to the past.

Dad opens the door and both of them gets a shocked. Dad eyes them suspiciously and ask, are you….fighting again? Hah. Dad started ranting at both of them to stop fighting already. Na Jeong keeps quiet and smile by herself. Dad asks if she’s dating, and no one answers. Dad continues that which idiot would actually want to date a girl like her and goes back inside the house. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h44m31s55vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h44m35s95vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h44m41s153vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h44m49s239vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h44m55s44Trash fools around, after hearing what Dad says about the guy who will date Na Jeong, and Dad turns around at that moment, which was so hilarious. Dad tells Trash to get rid of the trash. Na Jeong smiles and tell Trash to get rid of his sibling and come in.

She try to link arms and rest her head on his shoulders, and Trash pushes her away. Mom comments that Na Jeong should date too, and that Chilbong is good. Dad mentions that if he was already in Seoul, he would have done everything to make that happen. Trash listens, and Binggrae looks at Trash. Dad went on and says that he doesn’t mind even if it’s an alien as long as he can take Na Jeong’s temper. Hah. Trash stands up to look at Joon (Na Jeong’s younger sibling). He quickly gestures at Na Jeong to follow him.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h45m30s130vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h45m37s204Na Jeong continues to link arms with Trash, and he tells her not to do it as the parents are around. Mom comes in and they stood up. Mom tells him there’s food and to go and eat.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h45m49s72Mom cooked for Trash Ox Bones after Dad mentions that he’s been studying hard. Dad comes by and started ranting at Trash that he has his own mother and to find his own girlfriend, and not to bother his woman. Hah. Dad and Mom goes to the kitchen, and Trash looks on, something weighing on his mind.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h46m02s200vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h46m04s216Trash is going home, and Na Jeong wants to see him off. He scolds her and tells her to stay in her room.vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h46m13s57vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h46m15s69vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h46m18s104Na Jeong sees him off anyway, by the backdoor (or where ever she came out from), and they started waving to each other like adorable dorks, before Mom opens the door to give him the rest of the soup. LOL. Mom goes back in, and Na Jeong and Trash say goodbye one last time. Trash face changes when Na Jeong is no longer within sight.

Sam Cheon Po and Yoojin are arguing. Sam Cheon Po is irritated that Yoojin is constantly, for the past few days, staying at Seo Taiji’s house. Yoojin rants about how the other fangirls have taken everything from his house, including the toilet seat cover. Heol. Sam Cheon Po leaves the room and Yoojin alone.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h46m43s93Chilbong is at winter training, and he looks at his calender and the day he’s going to leave.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h46m55s219Na Jeong is all dressed up. Trash is at the hospital, and his senior told him and the others that they can go home and there will be no on-call duties till March and that they should spent time with family and partners as once internship starts, they are going to break up anyway. HAH. Trash friends asked him to join for a drink, but he refuses as he hardly see Na Jeong. Trash hears the message Na Jeong left him. Na Jeong says that she is on the way to his house. Trash panics, and started running like his life depended on it…only to make us think, what is he hiding?

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h47m09s100vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h47m10s114vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h47m19s199vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h47m49s244vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h47m40s159And it’s actually just his house in an utter mess. Terrible mess actually. Na Jeong is speechless beyond words, and throws Trash out of the house. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h47m58s84But gives him a jacket anyway because it’s cold.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m18s27vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m21s57vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m24s78vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m31s155Trash drives Na Jeong home, and when Na Jeong is still sleeping, he turns on the engine back so that the aircon will still run. Na Jeong wakes up soon after, and started nagging at Trash to start living like a normal person. She is about to leave but asks Trash to kiss her. Trash tells her to go home as they are in front of the door. He smiles and waves goodbye.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m41s1vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m40s240vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m53s113vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h48m57s158Na Jeong goes back to her room, and she notices her picture in Chilbong’s cap.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h49m14s74vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h49m20s129Chilbong is in his room alone, and ‘wife’ comes and tells him that he can go home as the coach says to spend the last night at their own home before flying off to Japan. Chilbong is happy, and ran across the field smiling so widely.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h49m57s247Chilbong stands at the telephone booth and hesitates to call or leave a message. He leaves a message for someone. Na Jeong is about to go to bed, with her pager beside her. She turned on the radio and it didn’t beep. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h50m19s211vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h50m30s58vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h50m35s118We see Trash out of the shower, and his pager beeps.vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h51m07s176vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h51m21s63vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h51m24s91vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h51m12s222So does Na Jeong’s beep and both of them steps outside to go somewhere and we see Chilbong waiting for someone.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h51m32s166vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h51m39s236vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h51m47s68And the person Chilbong paged is Trash (we all know because the preview showed it, right?)

Na Jeong is actually meeting Sam Cheon Po, because Yoojin is dead drunk. Sam Cheon Po is pissed off and leaves Yoojin to Na Jeong.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h52m07s11vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h52m17s107vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h52m08s18vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h52m30s240vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h52m36s43Chilbong holds the baseball on his hand, and tells Trash about the meaning behind the ball. It was the ball from the first game he lost after underestimating his opponent, and it was also the same ball he used against that same opponent the following year and won. He hands it to Trash and tells him that he will come back for it one day.

Seo Taiji and the Boys made an official announcement that they are going to retire and Yoojin threatens to kill herself.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h52m52s201Na Jeong receives a beep, and she dials it but on the other line, it was just silence.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h53m18s203vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h53m28s56vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h53m32s93vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h53m36s131And it’s Chilbong on the other line who couldn’t say anything.

Na Jeong is on the phone with Trash, and she asks if it’s okay if Yoojin doesn’t eat or drink anything for the past two days. Trash says it’s not good. Na Jeong went on to complain about Sam Cheon Po who doesn’t understand Yoojin’s heart for Seo Taiji, and Trash tells Na Jeong that different people are different. Na Jeong asks if Trash would be like him, and Trash denies saying that he is understanding and generous like the pacific ocean. Na Jeong asked if she could go to Gongsan as Sangmin Oppa is there, and Trash quickly tells her no and started scolding her. HAH.

Sam Cheon Po tells Yoojin to eat, and she refuses. Mom cooked 1 whole chicken per person, and Dad carries Yoojin down to the dining table and they asked her to eat. Binggrae gives her his drumstick, and when Yoojin walks away after drinking a spoon of the soup, he takes back his chicken. LOL.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m01s123vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m04s158Na Jeong asks Trash to come in and when Trash refuses, she made a puppy face. Trash tells her not to flirt. Lol. Na Jeong says that she’s not flirting because who flirt with their boyfriend. She turns and kiss him on the cheek. He stares at her, and she rants that she’s the only one who likes him and likes him too much. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m17s27vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m21s65vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m27s130vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m42s25vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m39s246vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h54m49s94Trash looks at her for a while, and he kissed her.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m16s105vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m09s34vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m23s177vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m14s91vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m28s231He accompanies her in, and tells her that he will be coming for dinner tomorrow and she needs to wear nicely. He tells her that he is going to officially inform Mom and Dad that they are dating, so that they do not need to be mindful. Na Jeong is happy, but Trash is nervous.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m43s117vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m56s248vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m59s28vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h55m54s229vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h56m07s108Sam Cheon Po wasn’t around and they started to wonder where he went. Yoojin saw someone from the rooftop and comes down. Turns out that Sam Cheon Po went to Seo Taiji’s house and brought back his toilet bowl. HAHAHA! He tells Yoojin that he will bring it up. Everyone stares at him in amazement, and Yoojin is touched. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h56m20s238Yoojin and Sam Cheon Po had a talk on why she likes Seo Taiji so much. Aww. And they ate.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h56m43s207vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h56m38s163vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h56m47s252vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h56m29s69Na Jeong is nervous outside, while Trash officially tells Mom and Dad that he likes Na Jeong a lot, not just as a sister. Mom is surprised, but Dad doesn’t say a thing and stands up to leave the room.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h57m44s53vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h57m39s0vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h57m38s251Trash returns home, and chat with Na Jeong on the phone that nothing went wrong. After saying goodbye, he opens up his drawer and saw the ball Chilbong left with him.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h58m09s44Chilbong calls the boarding home, and everyone runs down to speak with him. They passed the phone to each other, and when Na Jeong stepped out the restroom, Yoojin offered to pass the phone, but Chilbong says that he has to go for training and hangs up. Dad comes out and says that they should have called him. He mentions that they must be working hard since it’s already late but still training. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h58m29s241vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h58m31s9vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h58m41s110Everyone looked at the time, and it’s 11pm. Binggrae looks over at Na Jeong, and both of them know why Chilbong hang up. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m08s128vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h58m59s37vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m03s77True enough, Chilbong is in his hotel room and he saw something out the window. It’s snowing. He remembers the time he spent with Na Jeong (*cries along* *heartbreak*).

And we go back to Na Jeong’s house in 2013. Chilbong is holding the baseball. He turns and call out, “Hyungnim” and throws the ball to Trash. vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m37s160vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m40s191vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m40s183vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m42s212vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m45s242And they both smile, for reasons, we don’t understand. Hah. Or know yet.

Back to the past.

vlcsnap-2013-12-08-17h59m54s68vlcsnap-2013-12-08-18h00m06s193Trash’s cousin is being discharged, and we hear her talking to Trash’s brother about Na Jeong’s description and she mentioning to the brother that not everything she said was true, but Seo Taiji was true. Trash comes, and she asks him for taxi fare as the bus won’t come. He says that there is still 5 more minutes, and she insist. Trash gives her the money. As he left, Cousin shouted that she hopes he would have a long lasting relationship which made Trash annoyed. Hah. We see her boarding a cab, and a line of people waiting for the bus. A while later, the people in the line were informed that there will be no more bus as the bus broke down.



Why, drama, why?

I don’t know any more – but I think that there is no longer a chance for Chilbong to be Na Jeong’s husband. I think drama is just delaying and making us confused so that we stay interested in the drama. They keep making us go around in circles, and it might be okay the first few episodes, but doing it every single episode just makes me more and more irritated.

When Chilbong gave Trash the ball and explained the story, were we supposed to think that Chilbong lost the first fight with Trash, but he might win the next round? Then explain the medical books and ball at Na Jeong’s house. It’s either Trash lives there, and Chilbong never did returned for the ball, or…I don’t know what other reasons there are, unless you’re telling me Trash, Na Jeong and Chilbong all live in the same house.

If Trash was the husband from the start, they should have revealed this adorable Trash who loves Na Jeong earlier. Why do we only see this adorable side of Trash after he confesses to her? They made it seem like Chilbong was a strong candidate for the husband, and with the recent episodes, it seems like Chilbong is totally shifted elsewhere and that is just so depressing.

I don’t mind if she ends up with Trash, but they should make it less painful for Chilbong😦 I feel so sad looking at Chilbong, who loves Na Jeong just as much, but can’t do anything. Oh well, I wish drama will just stop Chilbong’s pain and tell us already if Trash is the husband. Rather, stop my pain as  Chilbong shipper, I need to be mentally prepared. Hah.

And that smile on Trash and Chilbong faces in 2013, with the ball, explain to me drama! Hahaha.

  1. The repartee and adlibs b/w Jung Woo and Go Ara are impeccable that it’s tough not to be drawn to their characters’ pairing. For them not to win the 2014 Best Couple Award is an outward denial and an abomination. ;p

    Even though I smile at Oppa’s quirks and I enjoy seeing NJ head over heels, I can hardly watch their kissing scenes. I thought I could but the first one felt like an anvil and the second one…I’m sorry but I just…can’t. It’s as if I was watching them through CB’s eyes. I had to switch tabs or pause-forward. I’ve only had a glimpse of Yeon Seok’s “sad-eyes-look” in Gu Family Book but only in this series that I realized how strapping it is.

    There’s only few episodes left and I’m not sure if they would go the quality over quantity route with regards to the progression of CB and NJ’s relationship.

    Come what may, I’m in the process of lowering my expectations and a part of me wants for it to be over; bearing in mind that everyone will be happy in the end and some if not all wishes granted. It’s the holidays after all so… Dear Santa..err writers.


  2. there is still a lot of hope for chilbong. when chilbong calls oppa hyungnim, it means they are related, they usually use the term for brother in law. so it could very well be that chilbong is married to najung.

  3. I actually hold strong belief that Chilbong is Najeong’s husband after ep 15 because all the hints are so obvious in this ep. The only thing makes me curious now is how two of them end up together. Even though Trash Na is very cute but more like a immature love than the serious relationship which could lead to marriage. Thus, dont worry!

  4. I don’t know if some of u notice but at the scene where Chilbong is in Japan, a Japanese called him ‘Kim-san’ which means that his surname is Kim..We already know that he has a ‘Joon’ in his name but we only need another character to confirm whether or not he is the husband..but then Oppa also has a surname ‘Kim’ and all his brother has ‘Jae’ in their name so there’s still the possibility that Oppa is the husband..arghh, it’s sooo confusing😦

  5. Ok, so hyungnim means bro-in-law, right? So if NJ married CB wouldn’t it be uncomfortable for her and T to be in one room, let alone CB too? I mean, hot kisses and everything included. Awkward. Very much. Oh, and you didn’t screencap T carrying NJ bridal style. Sad. I’d love to see that. Ok, and I have to say, I LOVE CHILBONGIE SO MUCH!!! I have to say that. I didn’t think that I’d love him after being proved that T is the Love Of My Life, but I do. So much. So, so, so much. Oh Lordy. I’m in love with two people. Two VERY HOT people. Lord help me, I don’t have to worry about NJ’s husband, because I love both men. Whoever is rejected, can have me, I promise! I’ll give myself, and that’s a lot. I love you, Leejin, my savior and Only Hope.

      • Interestingly, that doesn’t drive me to the edge. Open arms, boys, I’m with open arms to accept the reject. Haetae’s already by my side, and I had to fight thousands of screaming fangirls (and boys :D) to get sweet Binguerre too. I love both T and CB equally, though I used to be completely in love with oppa-ya since Day 1, CB upped his game with his showcase of adorableness. I love their mirror-ing characterization, though I have to admit, I miss the cat-dog fights between NJ and T. Although now I can enjoy me some swoon-worthy oppa moments. Yum! And those kisses. . . Ya think he gives them out for free? Shotgun!

  6. Sigh tt’s it…this episode has kinda removed any last hope i was holding onto chilbong is the husband😦
    I read some other reviews, and looks like i’m one of the many chilbong fans who thinks tt way too😦
    Coz with so few episodes left, and with oppa and na jeong still very much in love…
    if there’s no drastic personality changes from either of them, it’s too few episodes left in the show to build credible romance for chilbong&najeong😦
    At least from na jeong’s side, as she has nvr shown more interest in chilbong beyond concern and love as a close friend thus far…

    I ship chilbong and najeong so very much esp since ep 7!!!
    The writer does a fantastic job of breaking our hearts in all of chilbong’s scenes!
    I can’t take it anymore.😦 i will go down with this ship!!!
    Thanks for ur recap btw!
    Chilbong till the end!!!

  7. pls dont make our chilbong suffer more… he always has a sad face and lonely, i see it and i feel so heartbroken….

    we know it trash is the husband, buttttt pls make chilbong happier… he deserved to be happy… he is very nice man, kindhearted…omg pls let him happy. it’s all i want right now.

    dont make him to be a desperate character and make him like a babo anymore…i want the best for my chilbong.

    really want to yelled at pd nim!!!!!!
