Recap: Queen In-hyun's Man Episode 6

Ah...be still my fluttering heart. These two are just too cute for words.






Episode 6

The guards freak out, having discovered that their prisoner is missing and scours the surroundings for his trace. Also on his trail are the assassins who know they have to get to Boong-do first. Boong-do is hiding up in the trees. After the guards have left, he jumps down but wonders where he should go. He does not get far before the assassins find him. Only this time, he's no match for the armed assassins. Just as the assassin stabs him with the sword, he vanishes and reappears in the middle of a road, in the path of an oncoming vehicle. He rolls away just in time, but finds himself still bleeding from the wound at his temple region.




Boong-do manages to find a change of clothes - beanies and bags included -and wanders through the fields and roads, still bleeding occasionally from his wound. Eventually he finds himself in a tourist attraction spot, swamped with people. A member of a chinese tour group forgets her handbag during a group photo shot, which is picked up by Boong-do who checks the content and finds a chinese travel guide on Korea (chinese characters are equivalent to hanja, Korea's ancient language as well). That'd be helpful.






The assassin reports Boong-do's disappearance to the Minister of Jeju, who looks troubled by this turn of events. He writes a letter, reporting that Boong-do escaped on the 22rd of March...and judging from the time of departure (23rd March), news should reach the capital in...


With the help of the travel guide, Boong-do buys some medication from the pharmacy, even getting the hang of the use of currency.




Next, he cuts his hair and treats the bleeding wound.



Then, he focuses on the routes to Seoul, familiarizing himself with the available modes of transportation. He concludes that taking the plane, which only takes an hour, is much faster than the horse even with no rest. It seems he plans to return to the capital before news of his escape reaches the capital. What is he planning?



He makes a call to Hee-jin from a public payphone, the first of which goes unanswered. The second is finally answered and so we're back to the conversation at the end of the previous episode. Jo looks on curiously at the emotional Hee-jin, asking about the caller.




Hee-jin puts him on hold, and excuses herself to somewhere more private. She wonders how he knew her number, since she had never told him. Boong-do explains he'd seen it once and flashbacks show Hee-jin plastering a note with her number on the dashboard of her car when they were parking in front of the library, in case she was obstructing traffic. He'd memorized it, thinking it might be useful even though he had no idea what it was then. Woah...he has photographic memory! She's concerned about his illness but he assures her he's fine. It's just that he is the target of several assassination attempts. In fact, he almost died that day. No big deal. Hah.


He's at the airport and asks about ID cards, which Hee-jin explains is necessary to board a plane. Jo comes looking for her, unable to suppress her curiosity. Hee-jin asks abruptly for someone called Yoon-chul.


Hee-jin borrows Yoon-chul's ID card, since he looks similar to Boong-do, promising she's not up to no good. In exchange for a photo together. LOL. How convenient.


On the plane, Hee-jin is in an upbeat mood. She assures Jo they'd be back in time for the broadcast but that's not what's bothering Jo. Sure Boong-do is handsome, but why doesn't he have an ID card. Hee-jin explains he lost his ID card but couldn't have it replaced quickly enough for he has to be in Seoul that very day. Jo is worried about history repeating itself- Hee-jin hasn't had a great dating record. Jo reminds her how she used to be led by the nose by Dong-min and swore it'd never happen again when he dumped her. Her advice falls on deaf ears, but Hee-jin promises it would be the last time. Jo is unconvinced (yeah, me neither LOL). Hee-jin insists it's the right thing to do, and Jo would have done the same if she knew the truth but when pressed, Hee-jin would not reveal anything more. Jo slumps back in her chair in frustration. Ah these two, they're adorable.



Na-jung and Dong-min are also in Jeju, for a photoshoot. Dong-min is surprised both Hee-jin and Jo cannot be reached and wishes that Hee-jin had joined them for the photoshoot. Assistant nervously shoots him warning glares which Dong-min totally ignores. He even seeks the make-up artist's opinion - who is more compatible with him? Na-jung or Hee-jin? He had wanted Hee-jin to come along but she doesn't listen to him much (err...because you dumped her?? LOL). Assistant tries to downplay his Hee-jin biased comments, suggesting that Dong-min is joking. Like a petulant child, Dong-min is unhappy that he never took him seriously. Really...he's such a child it's cute.




Dong-min is called to join Na-jung for the shoot. To make his point, he explains that if it was Hee-jin, he'd run over in an instant, but if it is Na-jung...he hilariously demonstrated literally what an arduous task it would be - by physically lifting his own leg, while reminding himself she's also human. Muahahaha. So juvenile, but so adorable!


During the photoshoot, Dong-min tells Na-jun he plans to date Hee-jin once she's as famous as Na-jung, a notion which she scoffs at. Dong-min insists it won't be long, not even discouraged when Na-jung tells him to  wait for another 30 years.


At the airport, the sight of two passing monks reminds Boong-do of his conversation with the monk. Only this time, we're also shown the monk's response to Boong-do's doubts - "In Buddhism, there is no coincidence, only cause and effect (karma)".


In the arrival hall, Boong-do finally sees the trailer for Hee-jin's drama. He stands rooted to the spot, entranced with his first glimpse of Hee-jin in traditional hanbook and hair...until Hee-jin shows up and taps him on the shoulder.




Hee-jin teases him about needing an ID card, explaining that he'd be arrested for identity forgery if he'd just left and things would get complicated. Boong-do is unresponsive, and she gets a little upset since she took all the trouble to come here.


BD: You....will be playing the role of the Queen?
HJ: How did you know?
BD: I just found out....what an actor does.
HJ: Ah...you saw the trailer. Now you believe me. Told you I'm Queen In-hyun, the one you're risking your life to protect.


Boong-do smiles.
HJ: Why are you smiling? It's upsetting. You don't think I have the style to pull off the character?
BD: No...it's the first time...
HJ: What?
BD: The first time I think you are a beauty. Compared to what you wear now, hanbok suits you more. 

Hee-jin blushes (while I squeal! LOL).


HJ: Why does it sound more like an insult than a compliment. First time you find me pretty? That means you really thought I was ugly. Do I really look like an ugly duckling to you?!!
Boong-do smiles in answer.


HJ: From your expression, it's exactly what you thought! How upsetting. I shall think twice before helping you then.
BD: But we're even now. I only recently found out what a player means after staying here a few days. I'm not a player. You took me for a Casanova and I took you for an ugly duckling. We're even now.





Jo finally interrupts them, anxious to get the deed done so that they could cut off all connections with him. Jo buys the flight tickets, initially wanted to place him on another flight. But Hee-jin wants them on the same flight, they could just be seated separately. Hee-jin explains it's his first flight, he' been too busy with studies. LOL. True... Hee-jin could hardly suppress her happiness, and suggests that they wait in a coffee shop since it's still early. Jo is non too pleased about it.





On the way, Hee-jin reminds  Boong-do to drop his ancient honorifics to avoid raising any suspicion, but Boong-do is already aware of that, from his analysis of the travel guide which also features on the standard language (I'd like that book too...). Hee-jin is impressed.



When they arrive at the coffee shop, Jo is not too happy that Hee-jin is footing the bill, shooting disdainful looks at him. Boong-do senses her obvious hostility but Hee-jin assures him not to pay any heed to Jo. Jo motions Boong-do over, grumbling about him being a good-for-nothing loafer.



Once Boong-do is properly seated, she wastes no time in establishing her important role in Hee-jin's life and demands that he be truthful to her or else she'd uncover his dirt and have him arrested. The following conversation between the two is utterly hilarious, given Jo's misinterpretation.


J: You said you are a university graduate. Which university did you attend?
BD: SungKyunkwan
J: Sungkyunkwan? Really?
BD: You said I have to be honest.
J: Where do you live?
BD: Bukchon.
J: Bukchon?? (The houses there are damn expensive!) Tile-roofed house?
BD: Tile-roofed house.
J: Do you stay with your parents?
BD: No...
J: Where are they?
BD: They've passed away...
J: Both of them?
BD: Both
J: Err...so if you're a student, how do you maintain your expenses?
BD: They left me some inheritance.
J: Inheritance? How much?
BD: Enough.
J: So what was it you father did...
BD: National affairs (muahaha)
J: National affairs? Is he a public servant? A high ranking public servant?? Are you being truthful? No lies? 
BD: No lies...

Jo is impressed beyond words and excuses herself. Boong-do smiles, glad to have passed the "test" without being discovered. Muahaha. His credentials are impeccable both in Joseon and Seoul.



Hee-jin finally shows up with the drinks. Boong-do is amused to learn that Sungkyunkwan and Bukchon still exist. Meanwhile, Jo is busy analyzing her new-found information. Conclusion - the guy is flawless! (I concur!) and a much better catch than any of Hee-jin's previous boyfriends.


Boong-do watches Hee-jin enjoying her coffee but admits he doesn't see the appeal. Hee-jin almost chokes at his next question - why is she here? Wasn't he the one who couldn't board the plane because he had no ID? Boong-do had only meant to asks her questions, he did not expect her to actually show up. LOL.


Hee-jin explains that she just happens to be free, and pitied him especially after learning about that worrying bit of history. She catches herself, annoyed she has to explain herself when Boong-do should just be grateful to her. Boong-do is just curious about their uncanny fate since he was told that there is no such thing as coincidence in the world, only cause and effect. Their previous encounters might have been coincidences, but she being here at his request makes it a cause and effect. From the time he receive the amulet, to meeting her, to this very day...isn't she curious about what this fate will bring? Looking at her blank face, he smiles. It's too much for her pretty little head after all. LOL.



Hee-jin takes a sip from her coffee, the foam of which sticks to her lips.( I'm pretty sure everyone is getting SeGa vibes here). Boong-do reaches over to wipe her lips, explaining : Cause is the foam stuck on your lips, and effect is me wiping it off. That is karma. Is it so difficult?





Hee-jin blushes, insisting that he is most definitely a player (that makes the two of us :P). Boong-do denies, since he only meant to make a point. Hee-jin gives her version of karma : "You keep making these moves - that is cause. Me calling you a player - that is effect! Get it?"



Boong-do could only smile in response but Hee-jin is not done. "You being speechless is the cause, so you could only smile - that is the effect". Boong-do laughs out loud while Hee-jin looks at him smugly, pleased with her quick-thinking. Can I say I prefer her versions of karma? Hihi. It's not everyday you get to out-talk a top Joseon scholar.


Min-am could not stop thinking about Boong-do's jab about holding the superior hand. He receives news that Yoon-wol and Han-dong has gone missing, further raising his suspicion, especially since the timing of their disappearance is right before Boong-do's arrest. He thinks Boong-do is up to something, but the fact that he could not guess Boong-do's motive is frustrating...to the point that he's practically obsessed and paranoid.

On the way to the boarding hall, Boong-do explains he's due for a confrontation with the Right Minister, where only one of them can live. Hee-jin panics, thinking he's going to kill somebody but Boong-do assures her it's nothing like that. Politics can kill even without moving a finger. Isn't it the same in this era?(Right you are, some things just don't change...)


On the plane, a small boy engages Boong-do in a conversation. He finds it hard to believe a plane can fly, Boong-do agrees wholeheartedly. He shows Boong-do a book explaining the workings of the plane. Boong-do pales a little as the stewardess announces they are to take off soon. Kid asks if he's afraid. Boong-do admits he is, so he should pretend not to notice if he cries later. LOL.



Hee-jin distracts a worried Boong-do as the plane takes off, making various adorable gestures. Boong-do smiles, his fear alleviated. Awww...She thinks to herself how unbelievable this is - and decides that Boong-do should write an autobiography before he dies, with a mention of her name, since she's responsible for his first airplane ride. LOL. Not a bad idea.







But wait, Dong-min shares the same flight, and the same economy cabin too. At first polite and courteous to the solicitous air stewardess, he kicks up a fuss when she could not transfer him to the 1st class cabin. His assistant intervenes, apologizing on his behalf. Dong-min grumbles that he has not been in an economy flight for over three years. Assistant explains that it's only a 50 minute ride, no need to create a scene just for that. He's even fussier than Na-jung, who's also stuck in economy class.


Dong-min turns in his seat and sees Boong-do (oh uh...), taking a while before finally recognizing him as the stalker because of his different clothes. Dong-min and his assistant belatedly realize that Hee-jin is also on the same flight, which only compounds the fact that Boong-do is stalking her. Hihi. Dong-min motions to the steward and whispers into his ear. At this point, Boong-do also notices and recognizes Dong-min, who's not so subtle in his intentions. LOL.



Boong-do unbuckles himself and approaches Hee-jin, asking for a place to hide. Dong-min watches his every move like a hawk, eager to confront him, despite his assistant's pleas for him to stay out of it. Dong-min sees Boong-do reaching into his pocket, anxiously frees himself from his assistant's grip and rushes over.


Err...more like flying over since he actually executed a flying kick, alarming all the passengers. Muahahaha....Which was easily dodged by Boong-do who tries to calm him down. Dong-min's assistant and the steward quickly rush forward to help and apprehend a cooperative Boong-do. Dong-min checks on the girls and claims credit for apprehending the stalker. The ruckus alerts everyone to Dong-min's presence. Instead of laying low, he makes a public introduction of himself, Na-jung and Hee-jin and explains how he had apprehended a stalker who has been disturbing Hee-jin. He apologizes for creating a scene, and basks in the adulation of his new-found heroic status. LMAO. The steward reassures everyone that Boong-do will be sent to the police as soon as they land.



Hee-jin panics, worried that the police will discover his identity. She stops them, questioning their decision to call the police. She clarifies that Boong-do is not a stalker, but a friend. @@ Her declaration confuses everyone. LOL. This is turning into a banjun drama.


Hee-jin explains he's with her and in fact, she bought his tickets. Jo tries to stop her from divulging more - this is a PR nightmare! When Dong-min asks why, Hee-jin takes a deep breath and announces that Boong-do is her boyfriend!! He didn't stalk her, they came together, they can confirm what she says by checking her card's record. They sat separately to avoid drawing suspicion. She tells the steward to explain to the police it's a misunderstanding since Boong-do is also a victim.


To prove her point, she walks up to Boong-do and holds his hand, intertwining their fingers. Only this makes Dong-min the unreasonable one in everyone's point of view - for attacking another person's lover.



Hee-jin whispers softly to Boong-do, who also lowers his head.
"I'm not very smart, so why don't you tell me....if we become lovers, what will become of us?"

Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Thoughts:

I swear I'm falling deeper and deeper under the spell of Kim Boong-do. He has got to be one of the most cheerful lead I've seen. Recapping this made me realize just how often he smiles. Gah!! I can watch him smile all day long.




Watching his smiles make me wonder at my masochistic self, for always falling for the cool, aloof male leads. I just love the natural chemistry between the leads - so sweet and heartwarming. And this is one of rare times I don't mind that the female lead is a little dim, for she compensates much by being bold and gutsy. I love how she's the one who gets him out of trouble, despite him being the smarter one. They compliment each other so well.

Speaking of that, I pity the assistants cum managers. These stars are all potential time-bombs. A PR nightmare. LOL. It's no wonder Jo is so protective of Hee-jin, but even she could do nothing about Hee-jin's very public confession. Dong-min is so cute I feel a little bad for him, but he's been so self-absorbed that he's totally oblivious to the fact the Hee-jin is totally not reciprocating his feelings. A blow to the ego would do him good, perhaps he might grow up a little. LOL.

So far, I love how the writer seamlessly integrates Boong-do into modern society. The chinese travel guide, Boong-do's intellect, his photographic memory - it makes it easier for us to believe he could have managed what he did. There will still be loopholes, the glaring one being Boong-do's awesome hair-cutting skills (he can easily get hired) and his fitting clothes (don't forget, he's rather tall), but I'm not one to harp on details.

Lastly, kamsahamida everyone for the encouragements. To be honest, recapping is pretty daunting for me and I probably take twice the time and effort compared to the experts on other blogs (I bow to the greatness of JB and GF), so your kind words are really motivational and spur me on.

p/s: I spent too much time screencapping Boong-do's smile I know :P

  9. Thank you! This recap really brighten my day, I've been so desperate to know what they're talking about, especially the exchange between the manager and Boong Do. But reading your recap, I can see many squeal-worthy exchanges in this episode. And I laugh along with your additional comments^^

  11. i love how mesmerized boong do was upon seeing hee jin in hanbok . LOL his world literally stopped.

    did you guys notice this ?
    *every heejin-boongdo scene, Yoo In Na and Ji Hyun Woo's height difference is given more emphasis, because of YIN wearing flats. i guess the writer wants to amplify the couple 's gaze to each other . (the last scene shot, i glued myself there for a while. so pretty !.)

    thanks dramatalk for staying with us. i love your style of posting actually. the quotes for one. and those screen shots are lovely.i don't mind the KBD's multiple scapps either. LOL.

    1. I noticed the height difference too...which makes it awfully sweet each time BD lowers his head/body (see: the bathroom scene in E4 & the last scene of E6)...somehow it actually makes them look even more intimate.

  13. Thanks!! I love your recaps, since we have the same reactions hehehe I must confess that i don't usually comment, but i do feel grateful for your recaps. I have been following you since you did The Princess Man recaps. Nobody did them at that time, so you really did all of us a great favor! I'm so happy i found your blog, even though google made it hard for me!!

    Sorry, for the speech, just wanted to say thank you! =)

  14. Thank you so much. Because of you I can understand this drama in waiting the subtitles.
    I'm a big fan of Yoo In Na - I like this drama and the couple HJ/BD... so cute.

    Thanks again.

    Kiss from France !

  15. Really. Awesome. Job. on recapping!

    ...And thank you for that!

    I actually found your blog via google as Dramabeans seems to have stopped recapping Queen InHyun's Man at episode 2 (Why on earth? This drama is so far much better than Rooftop Prince or King 2 Hearts, for instance), and watching the episodes raw left me too much for the imagination (as I only understand bits here and there of what they're saying). Now I can say I really KNOW what's going on.

    An awesome drama so far and I might speak for many when I say: screencap his smile to your heats content - male leads who smile like THAT are a rare commodity!

    Cheers!

    J.

    1. Dramabeans has explained that her recaps for QIM will be spaced weekly due to her commitments. I'm pretty sure it's ongoing cause I read hers too :P And since she'd already committed herself to recapping RP and K2H, it'll be too much for her to handle.

  18. On the subject of BD's smile, anyone notice he has different smile for Joseon and current time? It's more wistful and subdued during his own time, and full-blown sunshine in current time. It's like he become two different person.
    What makes him so happy in current time? Escaping dangers or just being with Hee Jin?

    1. I'm thinking Hee-jin makes him smile...I should know coz I screencapped all his smiles. :P

      Delete
    2. I totally agree. Good observation. It may also be because there's nothing that makes him smile in the Joseon times, or at least in the events which we saw anyway. Political intrigue, and assassination attempts. No, I hardly think there is anything for him to smile about.

      Then he comes to the modern world, where he's taught a kiss on the mouth is a formal of greeting XD As he says, "It's a beautiful world here" :D

      Delete
    3. I bow down to the observation of our screencapper ^^
      Snow, so true! After living a life of proper manners who wouldn't think it's an amazing world where guy can hug girls in public places and kiss her for goodbye? :P

      Delete
    4. Agree with all of the above comments, and also, just like his response to Hee Jin saying people can hug each other whenever they want, this world is just so new and wonderful to him! Haha, he doesn't know anything about the politics of this world yet, so it's like blissful ignorance, kind of like the way baies are to busy figuring out how to walk to care about anything else.

      Delete
  19. Hehehehe you posted my favourite moment as the top picture! I was waiting, and waiting for him to lean that biiiiit more... :D

    Agree with all you said about the characters~ Aside from NJ, there's no one really evil or unlikable, and even NJ seems amusing to me because of the way her mouth is always curled up on one end. It's like her trademark expression or something. I think she entertains the idea of being with DM because they're both top stars, and it's more her pride that resists the idea that DM would favour HJ more than her.

    DM was so funny when he lifted his legs. Haha.. and he wonders why no one takes him seriously. His ego does need a beating, though that's precisely what makes him so funny - him being so full of himself :P I cringed for him as the people in the plane reacted to HJ's declaration.

    I laughed so hard at BD's conversation with SK!! So epic! Hahaha... I was wondering what he was going to say and then he went "Sungkyunkwan"! And Bukchon as his residence! Complete with tiled-roof house, no parents, and an inheritance (of which I love that he used "enough" to describe - safe for him, appearing as modest to SK). Way to go dude!

    It's so refreshing to have two people who grab the chance to do exactly the thing they want because of the fact they may not meet again. How many times we've angsted because someone wouldn't say something, or do something. I love how forward both BD and HJ are, and how they just go with the flow. I always thought Yoo Inna has this bubbly charm, and it works so well with her character here *thumbs up*

    And I noticed also the loophole you mentioned about BD's clothes - JHW is REALLY tall, even in Korea. But I don't care because I love the drama so much~! Hahaha... minor quibble, is all.

    1. about BD's clothes, i think with his habit of observing things, he also managed to check in the sizes of clothes he needs to wear. LOL my imagination on things. he's a martial arts expert as the rest have reasoned so when it comes to thinking stuff he's more of a precise and concise person.

      but i love the uneven hair.

    And Hee Jin and BD together is just sooo lovely, I love them so much.

    1. I did watch CYHMH and agree with you, Dong-ju is sweet and gentle too. Notice I say "one of the most..." instead of "the most..." . LOL. I wondered if anyone would notice. That was a lovely show as well, and it also made me a Nam Gong-min fan.

    2. Omo you watch CYHMH? too?? Waaah I was a big fan of that drama, even download all the eps. Such a cute and lovely drama... And great acting...
      Even maybe fall over again for Nam Gong-Min since I haven't watch in another drama since One Fine Day with Sung Yuri and GoonYo...

    3. true that CYHMH is also sweet and gentle but no one beats BD when it comes to the FULL package of a gentlemen. BD is the ONLY character in korean drama that is EVER perfect...sweet, calm, collected, smart, skilled, patient, adaptable, quick, honest, loyal, tall, handsome, chivalrous, PERFECT!

  28. Hi :) Thanks for this. I have been reading drama recaps at various websites for over a year now and have never felt compelled to leave a comment until now.

    I've become so addicted this drama but it seems like the interest in this drama isn't too high and dramabeans is recapping this at a slower pace...so it was a godsend when I saw your blog linked in Soompi! I am devouring everything related to QIHM haha

    Even though I've watched the episodes with chinese subs, I still enjoy reading your recaps. And you are an AWESOME recapper, with good and varying use of English.

    Thank you once again! Really appreciate it.

  34. I just found your blog. Thanks so much for the recap. Seriously i just love Boong Do. He is so cool, calm and collected. The chemistry between the leads is just amazing. Dong Min is just epic fail

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank-you!!! Loved this episode. Although, I do wish the PDs would show us how Boong do manages to get a set of clothes every-time. This time he had even landed on a highway with nothing around him for miles, making it almost impossible for him to get those clothes. The show's is great on all other fronts though, so I can let that slide.

  40. BTWs, did anyone else think the actors were going to kiss in the last scene? When they were looking at each other in the last scene there was so much chemistry. HJ was looking up at DB and when DB bend a little low, I could swear they were going to kiss. LOL

  41. Thank you for doing the recaps! I really enjoy them, since I can only watch the eps in Korean and make guesses on what is happening... (even though im learning Korean right now LOL)

    This is one of my favorite dramas! Its super adorable! :)

    Yoo Inna is one of my favorite actresses, so that is why I first started watching! Are there going to be 18 eps or 16 eps?

  55. wht a great recap. my heart fluttered after reading it. i've watched ep6 raw n finished with eng sub up to ep5. so true, i'm glued to this series esp fixated on our male lead boong do. his smiling face is captivating n the otp chemistry can't b anymore convincing, they really do compliment each other. i luv tht hee jin is cutely innocent n bold at d same time. i stopped watching d rooftop prince 4 some time nw n only keep reading d recap but 4 this series i'm definitely sticking around till it ends. look forward 2 reading ur recaps in d future.

  57. Great job recapping this show!!! *muacks* Don't you think that it's a show that can endure repeated watching? Not that I do that often *coughs*

    I'm glad I could watch the c-subbed episodes. They are uploaded so much faster than the english ones XD

    Our couple is SO. CUTE. This was really a pleasant surprise; I only started watching it because Yoo Inna is pretty cute. But now I'm in love with our boy as well and OMG, his smile is to die for. I wonder if it's possible for a couple to sizzle up the screen (rawr!) and make me feel warm and fuzzy simultaneously. They are cute and sexy at the same time, I want to squish them together. If you've watched the extended preview of the next episode (SPOILER) more cuteness abounds! XD

    And with regards to the previous few episodes, I was very amused by how the girl has to take initiative for once and totally turn the tables on gender stereotypes (skinship to him via seatbelt, opening his car door, kissing him). Because she has to "teach" him things he doesn't know. HEH endless humor.

    PS: BD is TOTALLY a player. A very perfect, learned, gentlemanly, cute one, but still a player. HEEEEEE.

  58. Thank you so much for the recap! Subs usually take a bit so I LOVE knowing the gist XD

    ReplyDelete
  59. How can this drama (and also Equator Man -it's too good!) have such misfortune to be airing at the same time as RP and K2H?:( Some people being more famous than others and viewers choosing only based on looks alone is completely screwed up but a reality...everyone is subjective and has the right to be, and the mass effect is just too powerful lol.

  60. OMO OMO...its Wednesday today...episode 7 is showing today rite rite???
    May2...i totally can't wait for your recap!!
    I shall not sleep.... :)))) uwahhh....

  61. Thank you for your recaps, they're wonderful! And I adore all the pictures of Boong Do's smile. What a great point you made about it. I think that his being so cheerful is connected to his being so levelheaded and quick to understand his surroundings. It allows him to see the best of situations, and to work himself out of the worst ones. Not only that, but I love that the dynamic between our leads isn't one in which Hee Jin has to teach him about love and human relationships, but one is which they both genuinely like each other. They're so cute! And I don't think Hee Jin is dumb at all. She's not interested in books the way Boong Do is, but she's good at her job, she's worked on it for years. A telling moment is when she gets Su Kyung off her trail by telling her she's too dumb to find her way from the bathroom, but really she was just making out with Boong Do. (Haha. She is the player.) I wouldn't be surprised if one of her tactics of getting through the world is letting people think she's dumb, just so she can do as she pleases. And she's managed to help navigate him through the modern world pretty well. Imagine if the first person he'd met had been Na Jung!

  73. Thank you for your recap =D Just wondering, does anyone know what OST instrumental is playing whenever the two have a moment? That zither piece? I been trying to find it to no avail.... In Ep 6 its the one in the airport when Boong Do stands in the crowd staring at the image of Hee Jin in the TV trailer... =D
