#1 An Awkward Date
I like that they both seem unsure how to deal with each other. I am just taking a wild guess that her "secret" is not that she is a lesbian because they have some vibes and even Mattai noticed that she looks at him "like all the other women who have fallen for me look".
#2 Expect Changes
The problem with dating a top star is that suddenly you are not hidden anymore. And it becomes obvious that things are going to change.
When David and Bo Tong arrive at the office they find all the reporters and Bo Tong is worried they might be her because they heard about all their new ideas (i.e. Noodle Sink, Disposable Anger Phones, etc. HAHA)
#3There is always an adversary
#4 Budding Friendship
I love that Mattai is slowly learning what using people hurts others/himself as he goes through this journey. Seeing how he hurt Connections Ahjumma by using her loneliness button for personal gain, he goes to apologize for the hurt he caused her. He also asks her to stop hurting Myo Mi since by being cruel to the actress now she would just feel worse about herself later on. " Hurting and controlling people does not cure loneliness". He walks out andshe just says that she is doing what she must to make her able to have her secret love........ But this time you can tell that she is not as sure about the situation.
Inviting Bo Tong's family for dinner Mattai uses this moment to throw his closeness with the mom into David's face (I could watch these two trying to one up each other for the whole episode). When he drank to much he said not to worry since he was going to spend the night at dormitory sock. Bo Tong immediately volunteers her room and gets slapped on the back of her head by her mom...hehehe. David pipes up that there is only one spot he can sleep if he is going to stay overnight. He points back at the tent. HAHAHA The Guys are going to have a glamping party.
#5 The Big Confession
So the evil connections Ahjumma has been all conniving and snagged Mattai back into her secret lover boy toy web. Poor Mattai is devastated, but again is willing to sacrifice himself for the good of Team Sock (still dont get why you would be willing to become a Gigolo for this but whatever........). He is scrambling around trying to decide what to do and asks David "If the company fails right now what will you do?" I Love that he is starting to worry not just about Bo Tong but also David as well. And David being the surprisingly more levelheaded of the two just says "You are Doko Mattai, you built up this company from nothing. I have faith that if we fall you can do it again"................. AWWWWWWWWWW The Bromance is alive and well between these two sort of step brothers.
Mattai also calls Myo Mi to ask her opinion? She tells him to wait just a while longer before doing anything since she can help him. He agrees and spends the rest of the day fretting.
Wow talk about a big ending. It is interesting how Mattai is changing a lot of the women that come through his life as much as they are changing him. Whether it is giving them some moments of happiness like with the electric fairy or giving Myo Mi strength to break out of the shell of secrecy she had put herself in. It makes for a much more interesting and even drama. Ratings remain low for which makes me sad. Several friends have also commented on how hard it is to keep everyone/and their actions in order. I have to agree that it is a bit hard to remember how all the various women relate to each other & Mattai. However since the main love triangle and story remain pretty straight forward I am not to upset or confused.
It was nice seeing David step up in this episode. Slowly bringing in David's skills in negotiations and his American education the are moving him from the one dimensional goofy sidekick character to one who is an actual threat to Mattai's hold on Bo Tong. Also they are connecting him and Mattai as friends so that it will mean more once they are on opposite sides of the fight for GM and Bo Tong. I also liked how he finally stopped being passive and started to tell Bo Tong (who is totally clueless) that it hurt him when she did these kind of things to Mattai who doesn't deserve her. Cant wait to see how this changes their dynamic. Will she finally start seeing him as a man and not just her sidekick?
Have a wonderful last week before Christmas. I am hoping to have Episode 9's post up by tomorrow along with my thoughts on the best couples of 2013. Is your favorite OTP on my list? Be sure to check back tonight and find out.
