This episode was all about Chang-hoon and I really liked seeing this side of him. And that's all I have to say...for now...*sob*

AGB Nielsen Nationwide had this episode coming in at 25.2%. Poor daddy.

"Lee Soon-sin is the Best" is directed Yoon Seong-sik by and written by Jeong Yoo-kyeong and features IU, Jo Jung-suk, Go Doo-shim and Lee Mi-sook.

Episode 4 recap

I lied. There wasn't a showdown. Chang-hoon just took his daughter by the shoulders and led her away from the fast approaching Mi-ryeong.

I really wish there had been a showdown. Oh well.

Instead, Chang-hoon and Soon-shin relocate to a park bench where he wonders why she kept everything a secret. When asked how much the debt is, Soon-shin promises to take care of it herself. She also asks her father to keep it a secret from her mother to prevent her disappointment.

In his office, Joon-ho watches Yeon-ah's make-up CF on a billboard outside and remembers her challenge of making Soon-shin into a star. If he can't do that, then he doesn't have ability. If he can, Yeon-ah will go to him.

He sees Soon-shin outside meeting with her father. When In-sung comes in, Joon-ho has him send two managers to check out Soon-shin's potential.

Mi-ryeong storms in to talk about the rumors. Joon-ho has no idea what she's talking about and she demands to know why he hasn't already taken care of it. He asks what the rumor is, but she can't even say it; she just wants it taken care of.


He asks In-sung to collect all rumors on her so he can take care of it and then tells her to calm down.

Hwang waits in front of her house and when she arrives, she greets him with a cold glare. He asks how there are rumors going around and she's surprised he's heard them, too. He won't say how he heard, but he's trying to take care of the situation.

He follows her inside, wanting to settle the rumor issue because he feels guilty and ashamed.

Well, uh, you should.

Mi-ryeong smirks and he wonders if she suspects him. He denies it and asks if she met anyone who knows about her past (i.e. Chang-hoon.) She walks upstairs and he acts like he doesn't know who spread the rumors.

maybe he didn't, but he sure got the reporter started, didn't he.

Jin-wook, the baker, is being all hot and setting up his baked goods. Yeah, he makes it look hot. Woo-joo's cellphone rings and he answers it. Woo-joo's father immediately assumes the worst, demanding who it is and then hangs up.

Woo-joo's dad calls Hye-shin who explains the situation but the man still blows the entire thing up. She fights with him and says they're now strangers and not to worry about them. When has he ever cared about his daughter?

Hye-shin turns and sees her father standing right behind her, having heard enough to realize that something is seriously wrong. She admits to divorcing with her head hung low. She promises to explain everything when she's ready. Then, she leaves to get Woo-joo's phone and Chang-hoon is stunned with the second dose of huge news for the night.

Hye-shin visits the bakery and has her first encounter with the sexy baker. Jin-wook says that "her guy" was in a hurry. She crankily demands why he answered the phone and he replies that it was noisy.

Jin-wook is sassy. I like that. He's also sexy. I really like that. I think Hye-shin will come to my side sometime before 46 more episodes finish.

She gives him a reward and leaves, but he doesn't want it. He can't figure out what to call her, ahjumma or agassi, as he chases after her to give the money back.

Aw, she still looks young and  pretty.

He chooses to call ahjumma out the door and half the women outside turn around...haha!

At the house, Hye-shin and Woo-joo's things have arrive from Hong Kong. Yoo-shin pitches a fit about having to share a room with Soon-shin since Hye-shin won't get her own house. When Hye-shin comes home, Yoo-shin nags her to get a house because her husband's rich. Chang-hoon struggles to listen to it but Yoo-shin won't stop, calling Hye-shin a princess.

Hey princess, stop whining will ya?

Finally, Chang-hoon pulls the daddy card and tells her to shut it.

Granny comes and Yoo-shin declares that she won't share a room with Soon-shin and storms upstairs, leaving everyone confused and Hye-shin and Chang-hoon extra hurt.

In their room, Hye-shin and Woo-joo unpack. Hye-shin is close to tears and her daughter asks after her worriedly as the tears begin to fall.

Chang-hoon sits down in his room tiredly and Jung-ae notices his mood. She says it must be difficult for adult children to share rooms. She suggests he earn more money for a bigger house and smiles thinking about Soon-shin practicing lines. She also wants to live with Hye-shin's husband in a huge house together. Chang-hoon looks even more down and his wife goes to make him sour plum soup to make him feel better.

If you only knew...

In-sung delivers his report on Mi-ryeong's rumors to Joon-ho. They say that her education and her resume is fake. Her family history is fake and she grew up in an orphanage. She also had a child in her wild youth.

This news doesn't sit well Joon-ho who immediately calls for a meeting with the reporter spreading the rumors.

In the cafe, the two managers not-so-stealthily watch and photograph Soon-shin serve all while pretending not to be not-so-stealthily watching and photographing her. She starts to catch on and she asks Mr. Waiter what they're doing. He reminds her about rule number 2 and she sullenly walks away.

Then the two managers call her over with big smiles. They claim terrible eyesight and ask her to loudly read some tongue twisters out loud, which totally twist her tongue. She sucks at them.

I suck at them, too. Guess I won't ever be an actress...

They urge her to read even faster and even louder. When she finally gets annoyed and says "forget it" they look disappointed.

Yoo-shin heads to the clinic to get refunds on her treatments and to cancel the other treatments. Of course, she wants a refund on a free treatment and on a coupon, which she can't have. The receptionist says that she can exchange it for a different treatment, but Yoo-shin doesn't want that either. She doesn't like the doctor, which shocks the receptionist because he's the most popular doctor in the hospital.

And then she spots him, Chan-woo, down the hall and runs away, but not before grabbing and donning a face mask and sunglasses. She sits in a line of women wearing face masks and sunglasses reading magazines. Chan-woo searches the line for her and almost finds her, but is called away by the receptionist.
