I am loving where this set-up is taking us. It opens up issues that needs to be addressed as the characters get to cohabitate with one another: Gun coming to realization that Sera might not be the one after all and Mi Young finally standing up for what she believes in. There are going to be lots and loads of hijinks as we press forward with these two different, but similar people.
Episode 5 Recap
As Mi Young is marveling at her new home, she is greeted by Gun’s stepmom who assumes that she is the new maid. As she gets in, Granny runs to her with a warm embrace. Stepmom thinks the welcome is for her still oblivious that Mi Young is the lady with the baby 🙂 (keep dreaming stepmom)
It is still funny how Gun looks like his past ancestors. hehe. Mi Young gets confused on who her father-in-law is since they all look like Gun. haha
Gun is still in his crazy, dark-eyed state as he has progressed worse into an wackoo land. He tries to sell of the soap factory to another company. He now completely believes that he has been duped by Mi Young and her family. Oh boy! He is not going to live this down, is he?
Mi Young is given the tour of the house and comes across her wedding picture with Gun. With smiles she thinks back to her talk with her mom stating that Gun is warm-hearted person who encouraged her during hard times. (Yea, don’t think so Mimi)
Stepmom and Yong come in to welcome Mi Young when Gun comes all disheartedly and cold. This wipes the smile off Mi Young face as he reiterates that stepmom is not his mom, he is in the marriage ONLY for the baby and Se ra is is one and ONLY love.
Mi Young opens a ready clothed closet, a surprise from Granny. cute. She even had more surprise as she got his-and-hers- pajamas for Mi Young and Gun. Cuter. hehe.
This act prompts us to see a half-naked Gun and flustered Mi Young, (don’t be shy girl. ha!) as they plan their sleeping arrangement.
A hungry Mi Young gets up at night to eat her fill, while a angry, sleepless Gun gets up half-asleep shouting snail as he heads to the kitchen. They play a game of peek-a-boo with the light switch as Mi Young tries to evade Gun.
Unfortunately, like in a scary movie, she raises the more gelled-up hair on Gun’s head as he finds her under the table like a food stealing ghost (love his scared face and priceless screams).
Mi Young tries to salvage the situation by stating that they need to be considerate of each other since they are not comfortable with each other. Gun, as usual, doesn’t care what she thinks or do. Yet, he is bothered by her inability to get mad at their current situation and0 his attitude.
Stepmom and Yong meet with an elder clan to plant a seed of doubt that the pregnancy and wedding between Gun and Mi Young is a sham. All while trying to bribe in for Yong’s stable placement in the company.
Gun is still in the process of selling the soap factory to another company as he is really gong ho about the betrayal he felt from the misunderstanding.
Mi Young is at work and Ji Yeon is pissed at her for getting married without telling her, but she easily forgives her. Awww!
Mi Young is told that she cannot work at the company anymore as per Gun’s request. He hands her a file and tells her that when she is in need she knows where to come to. (nice)
On her way home, Mi Young gets startled by a huge fluffy dog in front of a remodeling store that happens to be Father Daniel’s (ha. until he clears up the misunderstanding, I will keep calling him that).
Mi Young informs him that she is married and he is more than happy to know that the baby is alive. As he helps her pick up her items, he comes across the file that Mi Young boss hands her, a divorce paper, which she hasn’t read yet.
Concerned, he asks her if her husband treats her right. She reluctantly says yes. This doesn’t settle in him so he gives her his number, just in case she is in a bind. And after five episode, he asks her for her name. Of course, it is Kim Mi Young; the same name of his lost sister that he is trying to find.
Oh Granny. Love her. She is doting on Mi Young and even tells her to do whatever she likes; she is now the ma’am of the house.
Mi Young goes into another room and stumbles across a homemade video of Sera made by Gun.
This sinks into Mi Young that she is being a burden to Gun who is in love with his girlfriend. Gun comes in and he is mad. He gives her three rules to follow. Never enter the room; they are only married on paper, so they are not responsible for each other; and after the baby is born, divorce will follow immediately.
This makes Mi Young teary and speechless. She explains,couragely, that she only agreed to the marriage because of the baby and to save the island. To her, she felt needed and wanted. For the first time, she felt visible. She owed it all to Gun for helping her during her hard times and he just being sincere towards her. This makes Gun look like a jerk that he is as she hands him the unsigned paper.
Oh, but she is not done. She has her condition. She won’t take the money he offers her after the divorce, but she will raise the her child (Yes. Mi Young 1, Gun 0). This doesn’t bode well with Gun.
Mi Young gets a call from concerned mom and siblings. She claims to be happy which doesn’t resonate in her voice. Of course, it won’t be a drama if Gun isn’t listening in the background.
Granny advice Gun to be cautious with his actions because the company isn’t as stable as it used to be and the baby is what she is using to keep their position. Big baby Gun is not happy as Granny brings up a touchy subject by comparing Gun and his dad of being unfaithful.
Gun meets with a different company that plans on buying the soap factory and destroying it for their purpose. After signing the contract, he is ecstatic, yet he has an odd feeling about the company’s plan in Yeouldo island.
Granny is in the hospital due to stress. This gets Gun to come to the hospital to check up on her. Grammy coerce Gun to go to a prenatal education class with Mi Young. haha love her.
At baby and me class, Gun is on his phone while Mi Young is learning birthing positions.
Teacher asks them if they have picked a name for the baby. Well, at least the rest of the class did.
They continue the class with activities to do. Omg! this is just too much. haha!
After class, Mi Young states that it was nice coming to the class as baby and daddy bonded.
Mi young goes to eat lunch alone when Father Daniel sees her and ask for her assistance in setting up the store. They are just cute together.
During a meeting, Gun begins to lose it as he imagines the company’s product, Jang In Snail cream, which targets existing problem areas, as Mi Young the snail. Ha. He wonders if Mi Young had eaten which throws off the presentation is chaos as they mistook his thoughts for the presentation. ha
Mi Young and Father Daniel a relaxing after working hard and they comes to realize they like each other’s company because they are comfortable around each other. Aww!
After Father Daniel walks Mi Young home, he sees that she is the Chairman Wang, aka Granny’s granddaughter-in-law. That is when Gun arrives home and sees them standing together in front of the house.
Oh metaphor where would we be without your wit. First off, I just realized that Gun and Daniel have never met before considering the fact that Daniel is Granny’s friend and art supplier. Of course, there is going to be a love triangle going on, but what I do not anticipate is Daniel’s and Granny’s relationship. I love it. She is like a second grandson to him as she dotes on him, well from episode 3, we see that they are close to each other. So I hope their relationship doesn’t end because Daniel is nice to her granddaughter-in-law.
Gun! Gun! Gun! Where do I begin? What happened to the nice, caring, guy we met previously. I guess he is purposely distancing himself from Mi Young so that she doesn’t get the wrong idea, but he is going about it the wrong way. Mi Young is not a daft girl where she doesn’t know her boundaries. This is something that the men she encounters keep overlooking. She wants to make everyone is this situation as comfortable as they can. So she puts everyone’s problems first before hers. He wants to purposely irk her so that she too can feel cheated (pregnancy). But that is not who Mi Young is. Mi Young is like a snail, as Gun suggests. She slowly creeps up on you with her niceness and never ending yes, but at the end of the day, she brings out the character of a person. Instance, the mean lawyer and now Gun.
As she said, she felt good when the attention was on her, when someone see her for her and not as a post-it, invisible girl. People paying attention to her and seeing her for her niceness actually brings out her confidence and this is what Father Daniel does. He listens to her, takes her pictures, engage with her. This makes Mi Young shine with confidence and a personality. But if she is being forced to do something she doesn’t want to do…sign the divorce paper and not going to be the parent of her child, then she will fight for what is rightfully hers. Mi Young is a fighter. Though, it might hurt her spirit, but she will demand what is rightfully hers (episode 2, earrings). I love this side of her and I cannot wait to see more of that. Gun get ready!
