Oh Joon was definitely in shock here. After giving his best actor performance, he was truly hoping that he got a captivated audience but Dal Rae is fast asleep dreaming of the saddest moment in her life. Getting the news that you will never ever see your husband alive again is such a painful memory. He failed again and it’s obvious to him that she is not his usual prey. It is also very apparent here that she is still very much in pain. Even after so many years she still mourns her husband’s death.
He is really one hell of a con artist cum gigolo. He even got a small black book wherein he notes down all the names of his targets, their info and some sort of a rating.
He kept on coming back to the bookstore to boost up his campaign but she was sick so he went to her house to see what is going on with her. Dal Rae on the other hand is running a fever and is somewhat hallucinating. She was reminscing again of the time when she was waiting for her husband to come home and then the door bell rung. She opened the door hoping to see her husband but it was just Oh Joon. She was not on her right mind, OJ didnt realized it yet. He was quite puzzled. He tried talking to her but she wasnt listening. She was in another world. She walked past him in the alley just standing there in the cold snow with bare feet. He then came up infront of her, trying to make sense of what’s happening to her but she started to weep. It’s as if time did not pass by and she just received the unfortunate news of her husband dying. She was weeping so hard, the pain, the anguish, the longing. He tried comforting her but then she fainted.
Oh Joon didnt know what to do. Obviously, he is not your typical knight in shining armor when a lady is in distress. He panicked. He tried running away but of course his conscience, if he still have some left (obviously he still got some), made him stop. He went back and picked her up and brought her to the hospital while mumbling how heavy his 30M was. The reluctant savior still got a heart.
When they reached the hospital, the nurse was pointing at OJ’s face. His nose was bleeding profusely. It was treated by the nurse. (I am wondering though why he wasnt worried about it.) Anyway, he watched DR as she sleeps, a tender moment when he brushes her hair off her face while a cotton is stucked up on his nose. (Jang Hyuk can deliver this kind of scene, it looked so silly but you felt its warmth as well).
The doctor came in and the moment he sees her, (and yes the doctor is a woman), he went out to hide. Obviously he got a history with the doctor.
Later on, just when he thought that he was safe, he found himself standing beside the doctor in the bus stop. Suprisingly, the doctor was not upset to see him. Nowhere to hide, he started to converse with her but the moment he sees an opportunity to escape, he did. He jumped to the bus and waved at the doctor. (The doc is not a former victim so with the nose bleeding, I tend to assume that it must have something to do with it, and hey it adds up, he is so careless with his life probably he is sick, darn it…dont shoot me!)
When he arrived at his friend’s house (Man Doo), he found out that the password for the electronic lock has been changed. He tried everything but this time it did not work.
Oh yeah, sorry, in an earlier scene…when he went back to MD’s house, it was locked. Obviously, his friend cannot go on living with him anymore. He tried understanding OJ’s situation but his last antic made him mad and that is when OJ stole MD’s credit card to buy clothes for his date with DR. So MD decided to lock OJ out of his place but during that time OJ was able to guess his password and when MD went home, he was so frustrated to see his friend lying down on his bed.
Just when OJ was about to give up on the passwords, the door opened and a man went out. It seems that MD decided to give up the apartment and moved out. OJ was so angry, as if he got any right at all. Anyway, he called MD over the phone and lambasted him for not being a true friend. Duh?! Poor guy, he is so soft hearted, he cried but didnt gave in to his demands.
Oh Joon went through his list of names on his book and chose who else but the crying teller girl in the forex counter. He had him eating on the palm of his hands already so it was easy. The next morning he woke up in her bed. Another tender moment when he hold her close to him but…screeched…hold it…the girl began talking about her parents and that my friends made him run like hell well figuratively…I mean he left without eating breakfast. He knows the signs of a clingy girl with major booby traps around her.
Jin Goo was in his office taking his lunch when his father called, ordering him to go and visit DR. (Seriously you gotta see this. These guys are hilarious). Anyway, JG went to DR’s house and since DR’s sick, it was only her daughter who was left behind. the mother in law is in the hospital as well.
JG talked to his possible “future” step daughter and what a sight. Obviously, he needs to have a crash course in PEOPLE RELATIONS 101 or better yet KIDS101. She tried playing with him but he was discouraging her and was talking to her in a very business-like manner. It ended up with the kid crying so loud and the man was so shocked as if he was drowning in water trying to stay afloat and that is how DR and her mother in law found them. The moment they arrived, he run out and escaped.
Back in the bookstore, DR tried hiding to avoid OJ only to end up being with him in the very place they met few days before when he was giving her his best con performance and they started to talk.
This moment I believe is the start of a some sort of friendship, the user friendly relationship that altogether will lead to an unexpected romance of wounded hearts….oooppss….screeched again…STOP!
I really, really like this series.
