This episode took a long time for me recap because there was a lot of goodies in this episode (and I was busy), and a lot of scenes just needs to be screencap because it’s too cute to miss! Lawyer Kim is being such a total dork in love – but it’s too bad that Sookyung misunderstands his actions as something negative.
Sookyung has fallen for Dae Young, and we also have a CUTE parcel guy, who I don’t know what is his role going to be in the drama. Is he just here in this one episode? Is he the killer? Is he going to be Jin Yi’s partner? I don’t know – but I know that he’s CUTE.
First of all – be prepared, this is a long post, because there are a lot of screencaps.
Sookyung is making a call to enquire on the cost of a caretaker for her dog, but decided against it when it was too expensive. She decides to just stay home instead of going back to Mom’s for the Lunar New Year. Dae Young prepares gifts for his clients.
Sookyung asks Dae Young if he’s comfortable eating alone – as she feels embarrassed to do so. Dae Young starts his usual theory lecture and say that it’s better eating alone because in groups, you have to cater to the other people you’re eating with. Before he finishes his speech, Sookyung already started eating and Dae Young comments that she eats without even listening to him now. Haha.
Dae Young asks if she’s back from an interview and Sookyung tells him about what happened. Dae Young tells her to cheer up .Before he breaks into the joke – and say that when his ‘thing’ is upset, he is upset too, and Sookyung rants at him for mentioning that again. She starts telling him that the card game itself is illegal, and Dae Young stuffs food inside her mouth to shut her up. Hahaha.
Kyu Shik is mopping the floor when the phone rings. He picks it up and it was Dae Young who asks if Lawyer Oh is in. Kyu Shik says she’s out. Dae Young steps into the office and mentions to Kyu Shik that he wanted to come when Lawyer Oh was not around. (LOL!) He gives the lunar new year gifts and asks Kyu Shik to pass the gift to Lawyer Kim and Lawyer Oh as well. Dae Young asked if they had picked a new employee and Kyu Shik mentions that despite the good qualifications the candidates were, Lawyer Kim didn’t accept any. Dae Young lies that a lot of places are asking for Sookyung.
Lawyer Kim is at Sookyung’s apartment block and he hesitates to call her. He finally calls her, and just at that moment, Sookyung stepped out of the building and took out her phone. Lawyer Kim smiles until she rejects him phonecall. HAH.
They go to a cafe, and Sookyung asks if he is here about the severance pay and that she was waiting to sign the form as well. Lawyer Kim mentions that he cannot pay her the severance pay and she is taken aback and is trying to control her anger.
Lawyer Oh opens up the gift Dae Young gave her and is surprised to receive a resort stay. She deludes herself that he is hinting on wanting to be with her.
Lawyer Kim comes in, and everyone is surprised Sookyung is back. Kyu Shik tells her not to do it again, and Sookyung apologises. Lawyer Oh tells Sookyung to make her a cup of coffee, and Lawyer Kim tells her not to order Sookyung to do such menial tasks any more, and that everyone should make their own coffee. He tells them that he will make his own coffee from now onwards.
All of them are suprised with Lawyer Kim, and Sookyung says that it mihgt be because Lawyer Kim is still suspicious of her and is afraid that she will spit in the coffee. Lawyer Oh decides to make her own coffee. Sookyung mentions that she is happy that she got back the job as she was starting to worry, and Kyu Shik says that Dae Young told him that a lot of places were asking for her.
Jin Yi goes over to Sookyung’s and Dae Young’s apartment and call them out (they’re not home obviously), and she pretends she’s on a phonecall when he phone suddenly rings. She screamed when the guy tapped her shoulder.
The guy took off his mask and ask if she’s Jin Yi and he’s here for a parcel service. He apologises for acting suspicious and explains that he has a cold and that it is his first time doing parcel service so he doesn’t know to ring the bell or call. Jin Yi apologises for being suspicious of him.
They sort out the items, until he hear an announcement that his truck was parked at the wrong place. He panics and started ‘replying’ to the announcement (which is totally cute), and he quickly took the items and clumsily leaves Jin Yi’s place.
Dae Young meets one of his clients and hands him the lunar new year gift. It’s the same resort stay voucher, and Dae Young explains that he only gives it to VIP clients.
Lawyer Kim goes back to his office to prepare to go home and the rest are left wondering why he suddenly refuse to work in his office. Sookyung says that it must be because he is keeping an eye on her and wonders how difficult it will be in future.
It’s time to go home, and Lawyer Oh rants that she hates going back for LNY as it’s the time when everyone will ask her about marriage and etc, and Kyu Shik rants that he will be caught in between his mom and Kyung Mi. Sookyung says that she will just stay home during LNY.
Sookyung is shopping at the supermarket, and she bumps into Kyung Mi and Kyu Shik with the kids. Soo Kyung tells Kyung Mi that even though she is spending LNY alone, she is still going to eat the goodies of LNY. Kyung Mi tells the kids to do a formal bow to Sookyung before they leave (for money. Hah.).
Sookyung is on the way home, and she feels like eating Sushi~ she messages Jin Yi and Dae Young. Jin Yi arrives, and say that Dae Young is not coming as he has an appointment. Sookyung is disappointed.
They were about to leave, and Sookyung takes out her phone to snap a few pictures and tells Jin Yi that a blogger she likes, always takes picture after he finishes his meal and post them. Jin Yi comments that it sounds like Dae Young’s blog. She opens up Dae Young’s blog and lets Sookyung see. Sookyung is surprised to learn that Dae Young is the blogger she likes.
Lawyer Kim is at home, when his nephew comes in and plays with a voice application which answers your questions. Lawyer Kim is amazed and tells his nephew to teach him in exchange with $10. He asked the application about what to do to get the attention of the woman you like – and it replies to share the same thing she likes. He thought of the dog, but then Barasshi scares him. Food comes across Lawyer Kim’s mind.
The doorbell rings, and it’s the parcel guy who left his gloves previously. Jin Yi offers him tea as he was coughing and he gulps it down, nervous, before she manages to tell him that it’s really hot. He leaves soon after.
Sookyung is alone at a cafe and runs out when she saw Dae Young’s car. She calls him Shiksha-nim and starts talking about how she is surprised he is the blogger she really likes. Dae Young says he is hungry, and Sookyung agrees to treat him and voluntarily sits in his car, excited to eat a meal with him.
Lawyer Kim plans to eat with Sookyung and think of excuses while in the lift. He calls her out in her apartment, but only Barasshi barked. He wonders where did she go after saying she will be spending LNY alone.
Sookyung and Dae Young goes to a restaurant run by a grandmother. He explains that he tries his best to eat here during holidays as the grandmother seems lonely. He asks Sookyung doesn’t he seem like a good guy in such situations. Sookyung tells him to stop being Dae Young for the moment and to be Shiksha-nim. Dae Young tells her to stop calling him that.
Sookyung starts asking Dae Young questions regarding his blog, and he tells her to eat first. The noodles arrive. Sookyung asks for his ‘food theory’ and the ‘food theory music’ starts to play and then it stops. Dae Young say he is too embarrassed to do it and tells her to just eat.
There is only one piece of meat (?) left, and Sookyung tells Dae Young to eat it as she is being generous. Dae Young feeds it to Sookyung instead, and say that he is happy when ‘his thing’ is happy and full. Sookyung starts to hiccup as Dae Young smiles.
THOUGHTS & DISCUSSION
OHO! Sookyung has definitely fallen for Dae Young, and the previews for Episode 11 looks interesting🙂
I don’t know about the parcel guy in this episode – he might just be a one-off character in this episode, or he might possibly be Jin Yi’s future boyfriend (GOSH, THEY LOOK SO CUTE TOGETHER!) or…he might be the assaulter.
Why I suspect so? I don’t know if it might turn out that way – but it’s possible. First he appears as a clusmy and silly parcel guy, then leaves behind his gloves on purpose to come back another time and gets closer to the lady, and then later in future, he has already let the lady’s guard down, thus can attack easier. It might be a possibility – I HOPE NOT though, because he’s just too CUTE. Anyone knows who is he? I feel like I’ve seen him somewhere…but I can’t remember >.<
