Remember we left off with Joo Yeon crashing and burning in her show and then crying into Joo Wan's arms about how cold Tae-Yoon was to her. And Joo Wan being the ever insightful sweety that he is figures out that Joo Yeon is really in love with her ice cold boss. But luckily for him she is a total dimwit when it comes to recognizing a human emotion and is clueless about her "real" feelings. He decides to keep it to himself so that he can have time to win her over and hopefully she will never realize that she has a crush on her boss. So one second she is snuggled firmly in our hottie's arms (admit it, all of you are really wishing it was you since he looks like an awesome hugger...hehe) then does a huge 160 dries her tears and goes in search for food. And lets just say that she is way too excited about finding an apple and has Joo Wan looking at her as if she is insane.
I would just like to interrupt the recap to say that this is the spot where Tae-Yoon became more than just her boss to me. He became the flipping jerk who screwed her up. We now see why she is such a cold, emotionless, nut job. She let this jerk tell her what to be and rather than keeping her inner self separate she turned herself into his perfect worker bee. She is not in love with the guy but I think it is more of a case of Stockholm syndrome. He is the emotional abuser who she has identified with and now cant separate herself from what he wants of her. Totally ick moment for me and I hope that I can still like him at all now. Before this I thought he was nice enough but now he just is annoying me.....
Se-Ryeon and Tae Yoon are doing their own dance of one sided love. Although it is more a case of Se-Ryeon saying I love you and I totally did a big oops when I dumped you and Tae Yoon is doing his whole "stay away from me you succubus. I hate you". Which to her means that he really loves her and wants to get back together again. He disagrees but by the end of the night they are back at his place going for round 195 on the bad relationship train. I personally think these two are perfect for each other. Especially when you take into account that they are both cold and cruel at a moments notice and mostly I just really really don't want them to effect the cuteness of the OTP couple.
For the most part I was really satisfied with this episode. To an extent we see why Joo Yeon is so messed up when it comes to her relationship with Tae Yoon (see my above rant again for my feelings on this). Do I really buy that she can be so smart in her work and yet such an emotional idiot....not really, but it is the way the writers are playing this so I will go unwillingly along. On an up note if she is so unaware of her feelings for him then there is just as much chance that she will explore them, see them for the reality they are, and realize her deep love for Joo Yeon. Because lets all admit that a personal relationship with Tae Yoon would not be a happy one for her. He would be obsessed about separating work and personal and I cant even imagine how much he could screw her up if they were dating. Just look at his handiwork with her personality to date and that was without putting any romance in the mix. Obviously she needs to be with Joo Wan who not only understands her but is slowly leading her towards humanity again. Personally I am steeling myself for these next several episodes since when he tells her that she is in love I foresee some heartache for our hottie. But again I am hoping that it is early enough in the drama that we will be able to weather the storm and get to some good stuff again so hang in there viewers.
P.S. I would just like to take a quick moment to thank my awesome friend Angela. She is such a trooper and helps me proofread my posts to make sure that I don't confuse to, too, and two. You rock and I would be sad to not have you around. As would my readers because lets admit that spelling is not really my thing.
