Most of us yearn for the kind of love enduring than time itself. To wait for 30 years for someone validates the saying that “Patience is a virtue”. But what if that same love brings pain for one of the most important person in your life?
They promised they will act as strangers next time they meet. And they did meet unexpectedly. Indeed, they tried so hard to pretend but you can see it in their eyes. The pain, the sadness and even the anger were all fusing together. Joon admitted he was uncomfortable and had to walk out, bumping into Yoon Hee on his way. She stopped him and tried convincing him to stay for his father’s sake; even apologizing for all that he has to go through. Joon asked if the love they had for each other is that intense that they can never seem to forget it. Yoon Hee admitted that they were fools because their feelings seemed to strengthen the more they try to put it behind them. As he saw Hana coming up behind her Mom, he told Yoon Hee that they have no idea what he has to go through and continued on. Hana followed him outside and Joon asked why she wanted to be a family when they agreed to be strangers. Hana thanked him for not opposing the marriage and even lied (it’s obvious) that she was happy about what’s happening, reiterating that she wants her Mom to be happy. Joon, honest as he is, admitted that he doesn’t want to be her family and that they should probably avoid awkward moments as what just occurred. He managed to order her to eat more though coz she was too skinny. I cannot help but be heartbroken for this two knowing that they would probably end up like In Ha and Yoon Hee the first time they got together. It is so unfair. History, as bad as this one, shouldn’t be repeated.
As Hana returned to the restaurant, she acted as if nothing happened and managed to finish her food. Sun Ho, good friend that he is, continue to be Hana’s confidant. He seems to be developing some kind of affection for her but he knows Joon is the one Hana wants so he stays just that, a friend. I wish he’ll find somebody nice as him. As with Hana, Sun ho does the same for Joon, whom he saw as he was walking in. Joon admitted that he was arrogant to think that love is easy. He said that if In Ha and Yoon Hee do get married, he and Hana will be considered siblings which mean that in one way or another their lives will intersect. He further admitted that he cannot envision himself loving one person for 30 years and is quite afraid of the possibility of it. Meanwhile, Hye Jung is busy preparing for her fashion show to be held at Tae Sung’s family’s resort. She eventually learned that Tae Sung has a personal connection with Yoon Hee as he disclosed that he is pursuing Hana. And Tae Sung figured out about In Ha and Yoon Hee. He waited for Hana and as she was on her way home, they walked to the bridge and he attempted to cheer her up which I think quite startled Hana as he appears to be so serious all the time. It worked anyway since it made Hana smile at least so I guess it was worth it. The gesture was so out of character that it was funny to watch, Hana thinks so too coz she laughed. He asked Hana if she is still happy about her Mom’s impending marriage and she said yes though her tears are just about ready to fall. Tae Sung reminded her that he can be someone she can count on if it gets tough for her. At Joon’s house, he found Mi Ho cooking with his Mom. Hye Jung said Mi Ho asked her to cook lasagna. Joon made a comment that he hasn’t seen his Mom cooking for quite a while to which she answered that he needs to stop making her out as a bad mother. It’s ‘coz you are, even your son is in agreement with me, hmmmmpp! Anyway, she told him to change so they can eat dinner and when he came back, the table was set for two only. Hye Jung said she ate already so it’ll be just him and Mi Ho, yeah right! I should’ve known. And as they were eating Mi Ho kept bugging Joon to go on a date with her and when Joon refused, she went ahead and told him she will tell his Mom everything. What a sneaky b***ch!!! Excuse me for my French, just that she bugs me too much, grrrrr! She has redeemed herself a bit ‘coz she inadvertently let Joon know where the fashion show is and he immediately knew what his Mom is up to. Joon confronted her and told her he will accompany her and will take the pictures as well even if she said that she will not do anything. Hye Jung then berated mother and daughter and said that Hana is dating TaeSung because he defended Hana. What twisted mind this woman has? She didn’t even realize what effect her words had on Joon. What kind of mother has no inkling of what his son is going through?
The next day came and Joon and Cho Soo went up to the resort. Cho Soo knew that it was where Hana worked and mentioned it. Joon told him not to call Hana or he will be done for. He smirked and muttered that Joon must be happy to see her in case. As preparation for the fashion show started, one of the superiors asked for volunteers and Hana offered to be one. I wanted to say no to spare her from more pain. But as I am only a spectator, I have no say whatsoever. Well if I had the power, I’d just whisk Hye Jung and Mi Ho in a far away place where they can rot for all I care. Moving on, Hana saw Joon as he was giving instructions and then his Mom approached with Tae Sung. Hye Jung was surprised that Joon and Tae sung seem to know each other. Hana, on the other hand was being careful not to be seen by Hye Jung. At the café, Sun Ho was rushing out to get to the fashion show and he noticed that the vines were tied to the fence and wondered who did it. It turns out, Jun Seol did. He slept in the storage room and In Sung saw him tying the vines. He told Jun Seol off but he just insisted he was doing it for his friend’s garden. He even asked for Joon and Sun Ho, In Sung told him they are both out to which he complained that they are hard to get hold off. Back in the resort, In Ha was spending the day with Yoon Hee tending to some plants and talking about their wedding. At the same time, Hana was reluctant to get out to the fashion show area as she saw Joon and his mother are there over seeing the rehearsals. She kept on making a gesture to the supervisor to come and get the plants from her, at which time Joon saw her. In her resolve to stay out of their way, she accidentally bumped into Hye Jung. She apologized and got a scolding from Hye Jung who didn’t notice her face since Hana, seeing it was her, pulled her hat towards her face. Joon was behind her Mom and saw all this happening; he dragged Hana into a room and asked her what she was doing there. Mi Ho, on the other hand saw Hye Jung, she and Sun Ho came up to her and congratulated her. Hye Jung seemed pleased to see Sun Ho and complimented Mi Ho as well. Joon, meanwhile, told Hana to leave and warn her Mom as well since the situation could get ugly if his Mom sees them. He left Hana in the room but Hana caught up to him and thanked him for worrying about her, he replied that it wasn’t her he was worried for but his Mom. Still, she insisted and he told her she must not care whether his Mom’s life will be ruined and they will become families as long as her Mom is happy. He went on to say that he’s glad she is happy. This exchange seemed quite odd to me. Hana seemed oblivious that Joon was being sarcastic to her. Or she knows and she just let him rant. He let her know that he is not happy and that she shouldn’t just smile in front of him. It is so sad to hear Joon being harsh to Hana. I know he was being honest. It just makes me really sad. Just then as he turned around, his Mom was there, and saw them. She approached Joon and Hana and asked who Hana was. She figured out who Hana eventually is and became hysterical; and she also demanded she be thrown out of the premises. Hana, however, reasoned she was working and will leave once she is done. Joon asked his Mom to stop and when she continued making a scene, he dragged Hana away. Sun Ho then, urged Mi Ho to pacify Hye Jung and she did. Joon, feeling frustrated, lashed out at Hana and she just endured it saying she understands. In the end, he apologized and walked away. This scene is quite painful to watch looking at them both trying hard to make sense of who they are and the feelings they have for each other.
The fashion show is about to start and Tae Sung was on his way there when he saw Hana. He approached her and immediately knew that something came up. Hana said he should have told her so she would have avoided Hye Jung and Joon. She was taking her leave when Tae Sung, held her up and had an idea. Meanwhile, Yoon Hee was looking for Hana and when told that she was at the resort, she and In Ha decided to follow her since In Ha wanted to have dinner with her. Tsk, tsk, tsk, bad idea In Ha. Sometimes I wish you have a sixth sense about these things. You seem to always show up at a bad time. At the resort, as the show is about to start, Hye Jung was talking to a VIP with Mi Ho when Joon showed up. After introductions, she warned Joon that she does not want to see Hana or she might forget their agreement. Just then, Tae Sung showed up with Hana in tow. He brought her to the show and Sun Ho saw Hana and greeted her. Joon and Hye Jung, both feeling quite upset, cannot do anything about it, even Charles and Cho Soo were surprised. And the fashion show went without a hitch. Hana kept looking at Joon; Joon concentrated on work; and Hye Jung, well, she took a bow in the end. It is ironic to me that behind that beautiful event, a drama is going on. I may never understand how some of the players mind works, but I can always relate to how so many emotions bubble up inside you once you fall in love and how difficult it is to keep it. As In Ha and Yoon Hee were on their way to the resort, Yoon Hee admitted to In Ha that she is worried about Hana. She told him that Hana found somebody she really liked and suddenly stopped talking about him. She knew Hana to be cautious and quite easily frightened that it is rather unusual that she wouldn’t talk about him any longer. Oh you guys, come on! You sure have gotten so dense and so into your own world. I am okay with you two finally getting your chance but you two needs to wake up and get a close look at what’s going on, geeez! Just then, Hye Jung came out attending to her guests as they were leaving. Yoon Hee saw her first and stopped, as Hye Jung turned around, she saw In Ha and Yoon Hee. Hana was left alone as Tae Sung greeted several people and she kept on looking back at Joon, just when she was about to approach him, Mi Ho sat beside him and reminded him of their date. Joon caught Hana looking at him and saw Tae Sung talking to her. She, however, lied to Tae Sung and told him she is going to see a friend and immediately turned and saw Sun Ho. She then grabbed Sun Ho and told him that they should go ahead. This exchange was witnessed by Mi Ho and Joon as they were sitting nearby. Mi Ho picked that time to throw a mini tantrum and she bombed. Joon just ignored her and told her to do as she pleases (yey!). Joon was looking for Hana and Sun Ho when his Mom called, commanding him to meet her at once as his father was there and they all need to talk. She never mentioned that Yoon Hee and In Ha were sitting across her. Just as I suspected, she will use Joon as her pawn against In Ha and Yoon Hee. The venom is dripping from her voice as she talks to Yoon Hee and In Ha. The way she ridiculed In Ha for his decision to marry Yoon Hee. At this point, I am quite disappointed in In Ha not defending is decision. About the same time, Sun Ho bought some snacks for him and Hana to eat and was trying to cheer her up. Joon found them sitting on the bench. And Hanna started confiding to Sun Ho how difficult it has been for her. How she is not happy anymore; how she misses Joon and how she regretted not choosing him; and she now wonders if time will be able to heal her. Just then Joon came up to her and said that they should confess everything to their parents.

They found Hye Jung, In Ha and Yoon Hee; and Joon started to say something when Hye Jung interrupted him saying she wants to be first. She then threw water at Yoon Hee’s face to which everyone were stunned. She warned Joon never to see anyone of them again and walked out. In Ha followed Hye Jung only to be told that she will never give up Joon and to forget his wish for a family. Hana tried consoling her mother while Joon apologized but Yoon Hee insisted she was ok and she requested to be alone for a while. The two left and Hana leaned her head on Joon’s shoulder as they caught up with each other. Their tears falling as they apologized to each other and so were my tears. This is too heartbreaking. Breaking up is hard as it is without all these baggage. My poor heart, how much more of this can I take? Meanwhile, at the café, Jun Seol decided to sing for the roses and In Sung got so mad with the noise that he pulled the cable from his electric guitar. Jun Seol complained but In Sung prevailed. Sun Ho and Mi Ho then arrived and Jun Seol saw them. Mi Ho was quite upset and was going to tear the plants from the fence as she knew that Hana planted them but Jun Seol prevented her. She stomped into the café crying and Sun Ho asked who Jun Seol was. Jun Seol introduced himself but mistook Sun Ho to be Joon, Sun Ho remembered him and corrected him by saying he is Sun Ho. He then asked where Jun Seol lived and he pointed to the storage hut to which Sun Ho got surprised. At Hana’s house, the wedding invitation arrived and Yoon Hee though pleased seemed to have reservations as she realized that people are getting hurt already. Hana, though sad as she was, told her to think of herself only and not to worry about anybody else. Dong Wook and Chang Mo pretty much said the same thing to In Ha as they were out drinking. They told him to not mind Hye Jung as they will take care of her or rather Chang Mo will. In Ha took a walk home and it seems a lot is on his mind. Sun Ho waited for Joon as he wanted to give him the wedding invitation. He asked Joon if he is coming and Joon answered no. When morning came, Joon was surprised to see Hana watering the garden. She told him that she just stopped by and also that she will do as her heart says and see him when she misses him. Joon got angry and told her that it is going to be wrong even to think about each other. Hana asked that he stay to be a family with her and he walked out frustrated. It was hard seeing Hana cry as she seems to gradually lose herself with all that drama. Joon went to his father intending to tell him everything. In Ha explained how he has never been able to fully express himself. Joon then told him that he now understand how In Ha feels with his love for Yoon Hee as he himself is in love. In Ha dropped the bomb saying that he knows who it is. Joon was stunned when In Ha said it was Hana that he is talking about. I cannot wait to see the next episode. It was shown already as of this writing but subs have yet to come out. I have to wait a bit longer. I just don’t know if I am up for that. Truly this drama has taken the genre to new heights. Just when you think you have it figured out, it turns and leave you scratching your head.
