Episode 7 Recap:
Gun spots Father Daniel hugging Mi Young and goes over to confront him. Father Daniel doesn’t back down in the confrontation battle. Mi Young leaves before their conversation turns into something ugly.
Gun catches up to Mi Young to know what is bothering her. Mi Young doesn’t say and Gun is forced to say that Mi Young should know her level. especially since she is associated with him. This riles Mi Young as she questions who Gun. Though she asks meekly what she is to Gun. Gun is still trying to figure out their vague conversation as Mi Young leaves.
Mi Young is upset and Father Daniel comes to comfort her, but he reveals to her that he is not a priest. He didn’t want to disappoint her during their previous encounters because he wanted to her help. This news just dampens Mi Young’s spirit as she gets up and leave.
Gun sits in his office preoccupied with the conversation he had earlier with Mi Young. He decides that he would go to “feed the snail.”
Mi Young is home packing her stuff and is ready to leave. She is tired of living with a guy who doesn’t hold his end. Gun enters the room with a huge cake box as a peace offering to soothe Mi Young when he sees her with her luggage. Mi Young says she is going to stay at Yeoul Island. Didn’t Gun tell her that she had live like she is not there. This clearly upsets Gun as he angrily tells her that he doesn’t care if she leaves. He is enduring the relationship because of the baby. He takes off his wedding ring. Next, we see Mi Young walking on the street with her suitcase.
Mi Young passes by Daniel’s cafe and Daniel, bless his heart, apologizes to Mi Young using his signboard. They sit to have heart-to-heart. In the meantime, Gun trying to keep himself distracted from constantly checking his phone to see if Mi Young called or texted. 🙂 He is worried.
Daniel tells Mi Young to go to back home. Hmm choice of words that he might come to regret later. He tells her that he is always around whenever she needs a shoulder to lean on. Mi Young goes back home, but she is reluctant to go inside when suddenly, Gun comes from behind as tells her that he has been worried about her whereabouts. This makes Mi Young happy as she thanks Gun for worrying about her and also telling her that she is a superglue and not a post-it girl. Gun still wonders why she is talking in cryptic form and takes her luggage from her as they head inside.
Gun and his goons are outside to greet their new business partner, Daniel Pitt. Gun is flabbergasted that his maybe potential rival is D.PITT.
Gun wants to know what Daniel’s deal is with HIS wife, but Daniel wants to talk business. That doesn’t last long as Gun insists on Daniel’s goal with Mi Young. Daniel rebuttal and asks Gun what is his deal with Mi Young. Obviously, he doesn’t recognize her as Gun’s wife since all Gun does is make her sad.
Gun is having lunch with Granny and step-mom he randomly wants to throw-up as soon as step mom opens the fridge. Mi Young enters the room and the same thing happens to her. This gets grannie all excited as her grandson and grand-daughter-in-law are sharing morning sickness. haha 🙂 Now they are one. haha. Of course step-mom gets her petty revenge.
Mi Young and Gun take the food to their room when Gun ask her if she does have morning sickness. This prompts him to feed her more. He takes the opportunity to ask her if she is still considereing leaving for Yeoul Island. Mi Young says not yet. Gun gives a little smile. :0 and so do I.
Mi Young’s sister and brother-in-law are in town to visit/look for a home in Seoul to raise their new addition into the family. Gun is more than happy to help the in-laws. They decide to go on a ferry ride together, double date, but Mi Young, silly Mi Young, states that Gun has a busy day. Gun takes it in, but from his reaction he is not happy about it.
On the ferry ride, Mi Young is clearly the third wheel, but it doesn’t bother her as she enjoys the ride. All of a sudden, Gun appears. Knew he won’t stay put. He claims that his work is done for the day. hehe. liar. Mi Young finally has the galls to ask Gun what his deal his. Why is he acting like he cares when he really doesn’t. “Who is the real you? She asks about him selling the factory. Now Gun understands her previous behavior. As he is about to explain the situation, the in-laws overheard the conversation and attack Gun. hehe. All of a sudden, sister-in-law is having contractions. She pulls on their hair as the pain increases. 🙂 ….oh the joy of pregnancy.
Gun frantically looks for a doctor on board. None. So he takes matter into his hands, literally, as he becomes doctor Gun. Such a cutie. All the family are now in the hospital having a nice moment and thanking their mom for being their mom. They thank Gun for being their doctor, 🙂 and mainly for the community center that he is building for the island. This is a surprise news to Mi Young.
Gun feeling chilvarous, well having a sleepless night now that he is concerning himself with Mi Young, Gun goes to tell Mi Young to sleep in the room on the bed while he sleeps on the couch. However, he is not comfortable and he wonders how Mi Young endured it. He goes into the room to tell Mi Young that she is a superglue as he had told her before. He never saw her as a post-it girl. How sweet. 🙂
As he is about to return to the the couch, his back snapped. ha…how old are you? Mi Young decides that she will sleep on the couch, but Gun sits her down on the bed and tells her that they can share the bed. But he set a rule. durr…there has to be a rule. If one of them leaves the room to sleep on the couch or falls on the floor to sleep. them that person has feelings for the other. Yep. This rule is legit. 🙂
They sleep on the bed, with back facing each other. Gun whispers to himself that he is an object, he is an object. He says this to distact himself from the beautiful woman sleeping beside him. While Mi Young tells herself that she is not nervous, she is uncomfortable. Suddenly, they face each other, with hearts racing really fast and temperature rising. Well mine is. 🙂 Mi Young gets up to go sleep on the couch, when Gun pulls her back down and embraces her, looking at her intently as he is about to kiss her.
Really show! You are going go leave the cliffhanger there? Really? Argh. Why? Just why? I am just going to guess that the kiss will not happen, so I FORGIVE YOU.
Mi Young. Oh sweetie, where do I start with you. Well I do assume that the way she is acting is because she is trying to respect Gun’s wishes of staying clear from each other. But because that is so engrained in her mind, she misses the little things that Gun does. For instance, in today’s episode, Gun tries to take care of her and show that he does care about her…the cake, feeding her cold noodles, going on the ferry ride, letting her sleep on the bed. He is finally recognizing that she is someone that he needs as well. He always saw her as a superglue, but today, it felt like he actually saw who Mi Young is. She is someone who needs to be taken care of. She might act like she is fragile, but she is strong as she endures what she faces. He sees a beautiful, strong woman who is too considerate of others to think of herself. So now, he wants to be the one who is strong for her. Someone that she can depend on without worrying about others. Someone who will take care of her even if she doesn’t take care of herself. Though sometimes, he uses the baby as a disguise of that notion, but in the end, as he says, she makes him worry. And it is not the baby worry that he is talking about.
Mi Young might notice little things that Gun does or says, but she misses the big picture without really talking to Gun about it. The thing about her is that she assumes and jumps to conclusion about Gun. But when she realizes that she was wrong about him, that throws her off her scent as she begins to re-question who Gun is? She still cannot figure out who he is. Everyone else sees a guy who will go through extremes or go through hurdles in order to make his woman comfortable (I will come back to the word., his woman, later), but Mi Young misses it. This is what makes her confused as she tries to figure Gun out. What I am beginning to notice is that whenever she confronts him, she states his full name, Lee Gun. I call someone I like by the full name when I am irritated at the person, but when I calm down, I call them by their first name, and she does that too. It does show that she is beginning to get affected by him, not in a bad way, but in a way that shows that she is in a relationship with him. Though she might not realize it fully, but they are in a committed relationship where she yells at him like a wife does. 🙂
In a way, Gun has already made a claim on Mi Young, telling Daniel that she is his wife. Twice. He might be saying it, just to show Daniel who the bigger dog is, but at the end, she is his wife and he wants to show it. He wants to involve himself in Mi Young’s life as he gets to know her and her habits, of course, Mi Young, pushes him away, but he still finds an excuse/a way to come back. He involves himself in her family, he takes Mi Young’s mom as his mom, and he is there for his in-laws without any complaints. This is to show that he is ready to commit. They just need to be on the same page next time so that they can both appreciate what each bring to the table.
As for Daniel, he has no more hope if he wants to run as a contestant for Mi Young’s heart. This is the umpteenth time that he is claiming to be Mi Young’s oppa. All hopes of him liking Mi Young more than a little sister is gone because Mi Young will begin to see Gun as Gun. He is “what you see is what you get” as Gun states. He is pushing her to be by Gun’s side and stay in the marriage through thick and thin because that is what marriage is. On the contrary, he really might just see her as a little sister and just want to take care of her. Well in the end, Mi Young has a lot of supporter who will back her up when the going gets tough.
