News breaks that Choi Yeon-ah is dating a successful executive who used to be a singer. A picture of Joon-ho is pathetically blurred. The look on Soon-shin's face as she watches is heartbreaking
Joon-ho is completely thrown by the news and demands to know how it leaked. Yeon-ah lies that she doesn't know. Then a rabid raccoon runs out of the kitchen and attacks her pretty, smug little face! HA!
No...there is no raccoon. But there is a Joon-ho who asks her to put out a press release saying that they are not dating. He'll put one out as well. Yeon-ah argues that no one will believe it if they deny it. She's going to let time take care of it.
Then Soon-shin calls and he lies that something urgent came up and he's going to be late. She deflates and says she is suddenly busy. They can meet next time. It's so sad and cute how they're both disappointed and neither knows what to do.
Hwang reads the news about the scandal and is shocked while Mi-ryeong could care less. Soon-shin quickly leaves for a shoot without breakfast, hurting Mi-ryeong's feelings again. Good.
But Hwang thinks Soon-shin is going overboard. He tells her that Mi-ryeong went to Wan Island to be with Soon-shin because she didn't know of any other way to relate to her. It's time for Soon-shin to open up.
How about, it's time for Mi-ryeong to apologize and stop doing backhanded things to win Soon-shin's affections. How can Soon-shin forgive her if she's constantly blackmailing her director, being mean to Jung-ae and spreading bad news about her family? I seriously think Soon-shin is an idiot for living there at all. She needs to grow a backbone and tell people to treat her right.
At the shoot, everyone congratulates Yeon-ah for dating and she pretends like the scandal is true. Soon-shin has to listen to everyone fawn over the "new couple" and when Joon-ho comes in, he gets congratulated as well. They even get asked for a marriage date.
When he tries to talk to Soon-shin, she walks out and Yeon-ah stops him from chasing her. Instead, Chan-mi follows Soon-shin out. She thought Joon-ho liked Soon-shin and is surprised by the news. He followed her everywhere and takes care of her schedule. But Soon-shin is too down to believe it.
Yeon-ah and Joon-ho have their own chat and before Yeon-ah starts talking the rabid raccoon dashes in and snatches her nasty wig and shoves it down her throat!
No...Yeon-ah actually gets to talk, and it's as unpleasant as you would imagine. She turns his behavior around and says that if he pays attention to Soon-shin, she'll look bad. She'll be the woman who stole Yeon-ah's man.
I hate that Yeon-ah is right and that she orchestrated the whole thing. Either she gets Joon-ho, or Soon-shin looks like a boyfriend stealer and ruin her career.
Where's the rabid raccoon when I need him? She needs to be bitten...now!
Woo-joo waits for her father to show up. He even told her that he broke up with the "other woman". She thinks he'll take them back to Hong Kong. Wow. Just...wow. How lonely for a good father must this child be? :(
Then sexy baker Jin-wook shows up and Woo-joo immediately tells him to leave. He promises to leave, but not before leaving some cookies. She refuses to eat them. He tells her to get better so they can fight again. Awwwww, then he leaves and Hye-shin walks him out. They say some awkward goodbyes and she smiles as he leaves.
A voice calls out and this unbelievably pompous man smiles at her as though he owns her. It's Woo-joo's father and he's every bit the prick we imagined he'd be. He's brought Woo-joo lots of presents that make her squeal with pleasure. He aegyos her to win her over and he barely has to try. He accuses Hye-shin of feeding Woo-joo something wrong to make her sick and mumbles that she should just forgive him. He even gets Woo-joo to agree with him.
This guy needs to be kneed in the nads by an angry sumo wrestler.
Yoo-shin gives a presentation and then is offered a big project afterwards to make a new item. She is completely ecstatic and her team is super supportive. They mention late nights and not enough time to date, which makes her frown. She has a fiance now.
Gil-ja calls her out to check out a wedding venue and brags about Chan-woo. Then the venue agent wants to know the date of the wedding and Yoo-shin starts stuttering. The wedding will be in a year. Gil-ja freaks out over how long it'll be and then realizes that they could break up before the wedding happens. She changes her mind and thinks waiting is a great idea. She goes home happy as a clam.
Chan-woo is suspicious of Gil-ja's easy agreement to postpone the wedding and suggests moving the date up instead. He just wants to live with her. She looks unsure.
Woo-joo's father obnoxiously pays the hospital bill and then asks why she refused his mother's help. Oh, you meant the Harpy who also deserves a rabid raccoon attack? He starts ragging on her hair and clothes and when she walks away, he tries the aegyo apologies on her. He never thought she'd divorce him. He says he would've broken up with the other women if she'd asked. A look of disgust crosses her face and she reminds him that it's over.
When Woo-joo is released, Hye-shin tells Woo-joo to keep her father's appearance a secret from the family. She doesn't want to get back together with him, but she'll let Woo-joo see him whenever she wants. Good for you, Hye-shin!
Woo-joo is happy during dinner because of her father's visit, but she doesn't mention him. The topic of conversation shifts to Yoo-shin's wedding date. She mentions moving the wedding up and doesn't care much about the wedding. She just wants to be married.
Jung-ae offers her some money for the wedding, which Yoo-shin immediately refuses. She also wants the wedding to be held at a nice place and feels bad she can't help support the wedding. Yoo-shin says even if her father was alive she'd pay for it herself. The mother and daughter have a much needed bonding moment. D'aw.
Breakfast at Joon-ho's is quiet and tense without Dong-hyuk present. When asked about Dong-hyuk, Soo-jung merely walks away. Joon-ho wasn't even aware that Dong-hyuk wasn't coming home at nights and finds out that he was kicked out of the house after a fight with Soo-jung. Yi-jung admits that she thinks it's because of a woman.
Joon-ho heads straight to the hospital to confront his father and receives another congratulations from an employee. He makes the most awesome face of annoyance. Hehe.
