Who knew that I would actually really like the storylines behind both of his latest women. I liked it so much that I will actually even call them by their real names (Shocking I know). Bratling is Kwi Ji and Prosecutor Ahjumma is Lee Kim.
He Loves Her!
Because of his honest dealings with Daddy Bratling he receives SS Home Shopping as agreed. Since he has been called to his first CEO meeting with the shareholders Bo Tong buys him a tie. She tells him that she researched what would look the most powerful and since he tends to go flashy she went and bought one for him. He does his usually mocking thing and asks what brand it is and when she admits she bought it at the flea market he rolls his eyes. But in the end he wears the tie. FINALLY, proof that he loves her! He wears her non brand name tie to his important meeting and for Mattai this is a loud proclamation that he considers them a future couple. Because really if nothing else he truly loves his fashion. Unfortunately that does not mean that everything is smooth sailing in his new job as head of SS Home Shopping. He is pretty much called to the carpet by the shareholders and he decides it is now time to actually learn how to be a CEO. And not just one in name only.
Torn Between Two Women
Poor Mattai. He just has the worst luck with so many people in his life. Most of it a result of him being a pawn between the evil queen and the plastic wicked witch. Just when he thinks he understands what is going on The Wicked Witch ditches him and stops taking his calls, then the evil queen offers him a way in if he aligns with her against his supposed "older brothers". Mattai finds out that David is his older brother and that his alliance with WW might be at stake because of it and when he confronts her she just plays dumb. Luckily he has that wonderful talk with Lee Kim noona and he refuses the offer from the evil queen. He tells her that for him it is not about the power and money, but rather having a relationship with his family. If he has to achieve it through these kind of means then it is pointless. Again this is why I really like his character. He takes the hard way even though he could skip steps and get things easier.
Finally a hint of Bromance
I am so glad that finally we see some connection between the two boys. It was really bugging me how David has treated Mattai after he found out that they are "related"(They of course are back to being step brothers but they don't know that yet so the brotherly bond should be shown in my opinion.) Realizing (and being told by Bo Tong) that now he was a real CEO and not just a figurehead he started cramming on how to run a company.
Does this Mean I Have to Feel Bad for the Evil Queen?
Since she does not own a soul (because she has official turned into a plastic mannequin, lol) the wicked witch cant resist stabbing the knife into the evil queens heart. She calls her out and informs her that she should have been a better person since the person she has been destroying is not her husbands son but her own lost child. Devastated, she rushes to her husband who confirms that Mattai is indeed her son (seriously people what the heck kind of lives have you led). She breaks down in agonized tears remember when she gave Mattai up and left him with only the other watch in his little chubby baby hands.
I know that we are supposed to be feeling something here. She is devastated that she has been hurting her own darling child. But really if he meant that much (say more then the money you chose instead of him) then you should have never been separated in the first place. Out of all of this huge messed up pile of bad family karma, Mattai is the only innocent one in the show. And I already feel horrible for the heartache he is going to go through finding out that his beloved mother was not really his mother.
See you soon when I review episode 14. I am not even going to cross my fingers that there will be any romance, but maybe we could see some of the funny that has been missing in these last several melo filled episodes.
