I'm so mad. The show was amazing when Soon-shin found out the truth. And now it should be called "Mi-ryeong is the Worst" because I don't think this show is about Soon-shin. She's more of a football being kicked around between people.
AGB Nielsen Nationwide had this episode coming in at 24.4%.Episode 27 recap
Mi-ryeong watches Soon-shin ad Jung-ae tearfully re-unite and I'm hoping that she gets it through her narcissistic skull that this thing isn't just about her. Something about the ice cold look on her face tells me that she didn't quite get it.
That and when Hwang suggests Mi-ryeong keeps her distance from Soon-shin since public image is in her favor, she doesn't answer. Not answering always means a K-drama evil mother is going to do whatever she feels like.
Soon-shin's family is worried about Jung-ae and Soon-shin who haven't yet come home. Yoo-shin nastily comments that Soon-shin probably went to see her real mother. She has reverted back to her prickly self in times of trouble. She really needs another coping mechanism.
Granny isn't happy with Yoo-shin's attitude either, but Yoo-shin is not only mean, she's smart. She points out that Granny was never nice to Soon-shin until she found out that Soon-shin was blood-related. They all see her differently now. And Soon-shin reminds Yoo-shin of their father's betrayal.
It's the cold, hard, nasty truth.
Then Soon-shin walks in with Jung-ae. Granny and Hye-shin greet Soon-shin warmly - Yoo-shin scoffs.
Jung-ae serves Soon-shin her favorite foods and she shovels it down without a smile, feeling the weight of the atmosphere. Yoo-shin makes it worse by asking about reporters. So after dinner Soon-shin goes upstairs to talk to her and appease her obviously flaring temper.
Soon-shin wants to know if Yoo-shin knew the truth and she says "yes": you're our father's daughter. And in a rare moment of emotional honesty Yoo-shin admits that it's hard for her to see Soon-shin. She's disappointed in her father and mother and that makes things hard on her as well.
It's harsh, but actually was the right thing to say. I'm surprised based upon her behavior moments before Soon-shin came home. But Yoo-shin didn't snap at her sister or say something intentionally cruel. She told the truth so Soon-shin could understand and deal with it. A step up for Yoo-shin. Let's see if she stays there.
Soon-shin decides to go sleep with her mother, needing the comfort. I think Jung-ae needs it, too.
At breakfast, Soo-jung's inner gossip comes out and she asks, no begs, Joon-ho about Mi-ryeong's daughter and about the father. Dong-hyuk orders his wife to stop and then Yi-jung comes in with the trending news on the interwebs: Mi-ryeong's daughter is an actress-in-training.
This is news to Joon-ho who immediately goes off to do some damage control.
The next morning, Yoo-shin is still moody and worsens when she encounters reporters outside their front gate. Soon-shin decides to confront them and Hye-shin tries to stop her. But Soon-shin is determined to solve this and heads outside in casual wear and with a towel around her neck. She declares she has nothing to do with Mi-ryeong and, predictably, the reporters zero in on Soon-shin's status as a trainee at Mi-ryeong's company. Soon-shin is overwhelmed by the questions and before she can think of an answer, Joon-ho pushes through the crowd, ushers her inside and then faces the reporters. He tells them that all interviews will be conducted through his company and the press release will be issued soon.
I.E. Beat it.
Oh yeah, if they publish the pictures they just took, he'll sue for invasion of privacy.
Can we say "bada$$" together?
Joon-ho heads inside the gate and scolds Soon-shin for facing them. But she has something else on her mind: how did the reporters know about her?
Uh-oh. She thinks he told and that he's lying when he says he didn't. Her proof: he knew about the press conference Mi-ryeong had. She shoots him a look of venom and orders him to leave her alone and to tell Mi-ryeong to do the same.
Soon-shin storms upstairs and Hye-shin follows her to defend Joon-ho. He's called and dropped by to check on her. Soon-shin immediately softens and looks guilty, but says nothing.
Joon-ho meets with Mi-ryeong, furious that she released the information about Soon-shin. And then Hwang cops to it and defends himself: it was going to be exposed anyway. Joon-ho doesn't know reporters that well because he hasn't been in the field long, but they are scary. It's better to release the news and have control over it than let it sneak up on them later as rumors.
How about not using an innocent girl in the first place?
Joon-ho begs Mi-ryeong to stop using Soon-shin to save herself. Mi-ryeong has the audacity to be offended and that solidifies Joon-ho's resolve: every interview will be through the company. Each meeting with Soon-shin needs to be discussed with him. No decisions are to be made on their own.
Mi-ryeong reminds him that it's about her and her daughter and he reminds her that if she really thought about Soon-shin as a daughter, she wouldn't have done this. Again, Mi-ryeong acts affronted - who does Joon-ho work for? Her or Soon-shin?
Answer: He works for himself. Awww yeeeeah! And he tells them again that they shouldn't have done this.
