Well, I just have to say it. This show is ridiculously cute. Jung Il-woo brought out the aegyo and Ha-won manages to soften up the Kang family and friends even more with her honesty and sincerity. Again, the episode really focuses on Hyun-min and his introspection, but it also focuses on relationship development and tossing in a few more obstacles for our heroes to surmount.
The utterly horrible step-mother and step-sister are still scheming to hurt Ha-won as much as possible and plan to foist Ha-won off on a man who may or may not be her biological father. Because of his debt, this man, no matter his true relation to Ha-won, may plan to use her. Can we please turn the step-family into newts? Please? In any case, that is probably going to be a major issue for Ha-won along with her burgeoning feelings for Ji-woon. They are adorably friendly and have a charged sexual tension between them now. This goes against the house rules, so Ha-won will be battling her feelings as well as her step-family and maybe-daddy. Not to mention that Hye-ji has decided to move on to Ji-woon instead of the stubborn Hyun-min. So Ha-won now has a rival in love. Hye-ji really is just a selfish young woman.
Of course, CEO Grandpa is very ill and that gives the Kang family a limited time to learn to stop growling at each other and learn to love each other. CEO Grandpa's wife also hasn't come out to show her claws, but she will soon. I still think that Yoon-seong is her kid and that they had a major falling out. Perhaps he is the fourth Kang cousin, which would be great. The family and friends are finally all starting to warm up to each other. They aren't friendly, but neither are they hostile towards one another anymore. Ha-won's earnest efforts and insistent meddling are finally paying off.
I'm excited for the next episode because this show makes me feel good, and it has a little meat to it.
