Protect the Boss Episode 5 Recap

Ooohhh, smoochies! And a non ambiguous declaration. And some godly God Moo Won vulnerability. And smoochies! Yep, this episode went all out on the romantic angle. Am I more convinced that the OTP is an actual OTP? Not sure, but I do find both halves of it adorable. More importantly, dibs on Moo Won. And yes, I know it doesn’t work that way but I’m still calling to get it out of my system. Now Na Yoon can come and use the skills she picked up in self defense class to kick my ass.

With Ji Heon impressing everyone with his presentation, it’s time for daddy to rejoice and run his “I told you so” victory lap. Except when you try to immaturely boast to your equally immature sister in law, you generally end up with a stiletto stuck in your foot. Okay, so maybe that’s not always the case but it certainly is here.

Turns out Eun Seol had gotten the videoconferencing idea that morning, had run to wake Ji Heon up, literally kicked his ass out of bed(and saw he was wearing the shorts she’d given him) and dragged him to the media center his former secretary had set up. The presentation is a complete success, but this means Moo Won came out on the losing end today and that means mommy isn’t pleased and lets him know of this disappointment. Moo Won seems impassible at first but as it will later turn out, the words really affect him. At the other end, it’s time for the winning team’s congratulatory hugs, except in light of last night’s confession, awkwardness abounds.

Ji Heon has to attend a meeting but doesn’t want to and only agrees to do it after Eun Seol asks him, to the disbelief of his former secretary who had never gotten a positive answer to such a request. On top of that, he asks Eun Seol to take it easy and go home to rest, seeing as she had been up all night. Her R&R plans get cancelled when Moo Won, on his way out of the office, gets to witness her victory dance (complete with unrestrained waving and pelvic thrusts) and asks her to grab lunch. But when they go to lunch, it turns out he’s not in the best of moods and really needs a friend to talk to. Moo Won, you can cry on my shoulder all night long. *ahem* He confesses that he got scolded and Eun Seol offers to beat up the person in question, until he says that it was his mother, putting the ass kicking out of the question.

Moo Won continues that he’s always tried his best and doesn’t know how to handle the fact that whatever he might be doing isn’t good enough anymore. Eun Seol tells him that it’s a matter of balancing expectations, which leads him to conclude that he’s been too good all this time. Moo Won, that’s so true. If only you knew how fiiine you really are. As a result of their discussion, Moo Won plans to stage a rebellion, except he doesn’t know how to go about it and asks Eun Seol to coach him through it. So cute! Do I offer to be his naughtiness coach or is that too obvious? *slaps self* Down, Silver.

At first Moo Won is reluctant to follow Eun Seol around, worrying about his reputation and pointing out that there are those calling him a prince of the financial world on Twitter. Oh my god, you mean to tell me that there actually are finance geeks fangirling over other finance geeks… on Twitter? BAHAHA! Yes, I know it’s not that unheard of, but it’s hilarious to me all the same. This whole thing reminds Eun Seol of his cousin, making her conclude that they aren’t so different after all.

Once he gets over his princely inhibitions, however, Moo Won and Eun Seol have a great time, goofing around and going to a concert and drinking beer on the sidewalk.

Looks like Ji Heon is on drunken daddy duty tonight, after his successful presentation had made his father have one too many. But carrying him to bed does have its perks because the Chairman says that he’s willing to forget about Eun Seol and secretary Kim’s involvement in the night club scandal. Ji Heon tells his father that he will forget what he promised when he sobers up, but daddy CEO claims that if he were to forget, he will call himself Ji Heon’s son. Oh man, please let him forget! Daddy’s drunken ramblings reveal a bit of back story as well, hinting at the fact that Ji Heon’s strained relationship with him is because the son doesn’t want to betray his mother. Wow, daddy, what did you do to make the kid think he has to choose, huh? And also, now that I think about it, to get ninja grandma on Ji Heon’s side?

In his room, Ji Heon wants to text Eun Seol but remembers he sent her to sleep and doesn’t want to disturb her. To his delight, he gets a call from her, but his delight turns sour when he hears her request to help her take a drunken Moo Won home. I know Ji Heon is supposed to be the star of the day, but then why does he get stuck pulling drunky retrieval duty? He gets to where Eun Seol and Moo Won are in a hurry and just in time to see Moo Won pet Eun Seol’s head. This gets him to call dibs on her head and to then ask Eun Seol if he wants to seduce Moo Won, which she fully denies, obviously. I know it’s immature and ridiculous (and potentially offensive in a different context), but I do love it whenever Ji Heon calls Eun Seol or parts of Eun Seol his. Maybe it’s because it doesn’t come from a macho overbearing sort of place but more from a childish favorite toy sort of place, and that makes it cute instead of irritating.

After taking a passed out Moo Won home and being accused by his mother of dragging him down to his level, Ji Heon takes Eun Seol home as well. As punishment for hanging out with Moo Won, he leaves the car window open even when she tries closing it, because, you know, that’s what you do when you have the maturity of an embryo. When they reach destination, he follows her and asks her if she actually likes Moo Won. Eun Seol retorts that she had wanted to ignore the situation but now that he’s insisting in his jealousy, she has to ask, does he like her? His first reaction is to ask “what, am I crazy?” (um… yes?), then of course comes the “have you looked at yourself? You’re ugly and unkempt and do embarrassing things!” but then, when she asks him again, he replies with a wonderfully disarming “choa”. Oh my god, I know this is in many ways the typical Darcy declaration where one states the shortcomings of the person they like and how miserable they are for liking them and then eventually confess that they do in fact like them, but this is at the same time so different because of the way this character has been sketched so far. It somehow manages to seem like it’s coming from a completely different place than the classic arrogant superiority. Not unlike the instances when he calls her his own, this is more childish than anything else. I mean sure, he’s a chaebol heir and he knows it, but he also knows that she’s seen him at his most vulnerable and he’s not afraid to be that way in front of her, which really makes all the difference. And when she rejects him by saying he should regain the sanity he lost when he went crazy for her… well… not heartbreak exactly but… heart crack?

But then as she begins explaining the reasons why they can’t be together, the damage it would do to her reputation and the blow it would give the career she is so painstakingly trying to build, I start both respecting her and feeling for her. And then, when she tells him that it would be damaging to him as well, adding to an already bad reputation, well, to tell that to a guy even if you didn’t like him, it can’t be pleasant, let alone telling it to a guy you obviously have some sort of feelings for. I love how compelling this scene is beneath the silly surface. The show has shown hints of the heart it hides underneath the goofball exterior, but in this episode it really let it shine for its audience. From Moo Won’s moment of vulnerability, to daddy CEO’s moments of pride and guilt/regret, to Ji Heon’s candid confession and to Eun Seol’s down to earth rejection of his feelings, we got to see past whatever we’ve been seeing so far of these characters and it’s something of a treat. Ji Heon doesn’t take the rejection or the explanation very well, and he says he won’t give up, until Eun Seol threatens him that she will quit unless he relents. Upon hearing such a dreadful threat, he promises to think about the situation more clearly.

Back home, Eun Seol hugs Myeong Ran wonder what to do, while Ji Heon is at home throwing darts at her cutout saying that he refuses to think about letting go of her. Afterwards, he puts band aids on the cutout and I don’t know what’s funnier, the fact that he does this or the fact that he actually has Hello Kitty band aids on hand. Then he talks to the patched up cutout, telling it she has to reconsider, in a Scarlett O’Hara –reminiscent “tomorrow is another day” moment.

The next morning Moo Won wakes up to the consequences of his little rebellion, a killer hangover and the memories of patting Eun Seol’s head and throwing up in the bushes. Aw, poor embarrassed prince of the financial world. Ji Heon and Eun Seol however, are both going through their wardrobes trying to figure out what they should wear today. Ji Heon is going for the dashing look, while Eun Seol is, by all indications, looking for the office attire equivalent of granny panties. The next days at the office are spent with Eun Seol trying to avoid Ji Heon and him trying to impress her from a distance with the seductive power of his bowties. Eventually, Ji Heon realizes that the job is way too important to Eun Seol to just quit and calls her bluff, adding some conditions of his own to their arrangement, now that the wheel has turned.

Meanwhile, the sister in law is gathering evidence about the Chairman and Ji Heon, while Na Yoon’s mother is having Eun Seol and her father followed. Hilariously, when the investigator sends pictures of Eun Seol’s father setting traps in the woods, they think it’s just a random picture taken off the road.

Later on, Na Yoon tries to speak to Eun Seol about staying away from Ji Heon but ends up only being more aggravated when Eun Seol compares their work situations – two women who don’t want to look like they haven’t earned their respective positions. In consequence, she goes to see daddy CEO in an attempt to get him to get rid of Eun Seol, except this backfires on her as well. As a side note, I love how daddy always does his community service wearing his suit, on top of which he wears whatever protective gear the job in question requires.

At home, Eun Seol and Myong Ran discuss the romantic entanglement, realizing that Eun Seol is finding herself at the top of the romantic food chain and that everything rests on who she likes. But she replies she likes herself, which is like… awesome, if it wasn’t a cover.

The next day, daddy asks Eun Seol to keep helping Ji Heon get on track, and by ask I mean threaten, bribe and play the I have to do community service because of you guilt card. She agrees to his request to maintain a close proximity to Ji Heon, but keeps thinking about all the potential complications that might arise. Her complex thoughts are interrupted on her bus ride home, when she becomes the victim of a bus pervert. Not one to just silently take this type of offense, Eun Seol roughs him up a little, which lands them both at the police station, with the pervert claiming to having been victimized. With nobody else to call to bail Eun Seol out, Ms. Wrestler calls Ji Heon, just in time too, because he was beginning to regret not going to work and thus not being able to see Eun Seol that day. Ji Heon rushes to the police station, ready to teach the creep that had dared touch Eun Seol’s butt a lesson. He pays the settlement fee, and then some, just so he can get to punch the guy as well, but then the pervert punches him back and it’s once again left to Eun Seol to settle the score. Ji Heon may have all the rescuing instincts of the gallant knight, but he’s lacking all the skills, well, aside from the loaded wallet, which really is most of what other modern day chaebol rescuers employ these days anyway, so yeah, scratch that. Ji Heon, you are such a heroic little chaebol.

Eun Seol tells him that she will think over his dating request, in exchange for his return to work. Aw, if only you knew how close he came to caving. Darn. However, she does have a few conditions, one of which stating that he will submit himself to her intensive plan of turning him into the business man he should be. He agrees, half relieved that she had called uncle before he had to.

Over at the Cha home, grandma finds out that her favorite car has gone missing, and sure enough, it turns out it has taken the road of her leather shoes. Before getting to Eun Seol’s house, Ji Heon excitedly calls Moo Won to let him know that he and Eun Seol will be very busy from now on and that he should stop bothering her. Eun Seol is less than pleased with the car offering, but ends up having to concede that if her boss wants her to use it, there’s little she can do about it. He asks that she take him home, now that he is wheel-less, and she does, trying to return the car again when they get there. Ji Heon will have none of it and instead asks her to come inside offering to share information on his condition. What’s a doting secretary to do but go in?

While Ji Heon and Eun Seol are busy getting to the bottom of Ji Heon’s panic attacks, Na Yoon is drowning her sorrows in a bar, where Moo Won finds her. She fills him in on the whole picture spying situation their mothers have going and claims there is nothing she can do about it either way. Na Yoon whines about how pitiful she is feeling because of how the Cha family members are treating her, and Moo Won says that despite his rejection of their arranged marriage he doesn’t see her that way, it’s just that he doesn’t want a loveless match – however, if she came to him with an open heart, he’d reconsider. Driving her home, he tells her to get Ji Heon out of her system and come back to him, and then he breaks my poor adoring heart by kissing her.

At the same time, back in Ji Heon’s room, he and Eun Seol are looking up information on his condition, an activity that gets them pretty close to one another. Ji Heon takes the opportunity and plants a kiss of Eun Seol.

Wow, kissage galore, and this early in the show too! Makes me wonder what they’ll do next, and who’ll be kissing who, you know, to keep up the pace.

Protect the Boss Episode 4 Recap

The pieces of the puzzle begin slowly moving into pace, and most importantly, the tension begins to build, whether it’s romantic or business related, the stakes are being raised. It’s all been pretty non-committal so far, but with daddy’s job/honor on the line and Ji Heon’s confession in the open, it’s going to get pretty hard to keep playing the game without siding with one of the teams.

After Moo Won and Na Yoon see Ji Heon and Eun Seol at the amusement park, Eun Seol unknowingly adds insult to injury when in her hurry to get back to Ji Heon, she bumps into Na Yoon, smearing the ice cream she was carrying on her blouse. Na Yoon gets pissed off and charges at Eun Seol carrying her ice cream like a knight carries his spear in a tournament. I mean if this was a cartoon, you’d be seeing smoke coming out of her ears and you’d be hearing cheers from a blood-starved crowd. She shoves the ice cream onto Eun Seol’s butt, much to the surprise of everyone present. Moo Won approaches to see what’s going on, innocently carrying his own ice cream, which Eun Seol “borrows” promising she’ll buy him a new one, and shoves onto Na Yoon’s butt, according to that old saying, “a tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye, an ice cream on my butt, an ice cream on your butt”. They reach a consensus that it was intentional and both women go to the bathroom to get themselves cleaned up. This gives Na Yoon the opportunity to ask Eun Seol about her family, in an attempt to go the “my daddy pwns your daddy” route, except Eun Seol’s reply is a tad too disarming for her to get to do that. Na Yoon also mentions that she’s very tight with Eun Seol’s boss, so she might as well comply with her orders, to which Eun Seol pretty much replies with a “you’re no boss of mine, biatch!” except more polite.

Ji Heon and Moo Won talk about the way Eun Seol had caused Na Yoon to become jealous and act that way. Ji Heon downplays Eun Seol’s merits and his attachment to her, so when Na Yoon comes back and demands his attention, Moo Won takes advantage of Ji Heon’s dismissive attitude towards Eun Seol and snatches her away, claiming she has a debt to repay. Haha, sneaky, sneaky Moo Won. Bummer for Ji Heon, but as we all know, you can’t say you don’t like your cake and eat it too.

Back at the Cha household, daddy receives a report on his son’s activities for the day and is spied on by grandma, who then gets accused of being a ninja – I was beginning to suspect that myself. When the CEO finds out about Na Yoon’s recent return and involvement in the company, he goes to ask Ji Heon about it, only his answer exasperates him and he takes his frustration out on the EUn Seol cutout, to Ji Heon’s dismay. As he is trying to fix it, decrying the condition to which it had been reduced, he flashes back to Na Yoon’s earlier accusation of liking his secretary. At first he thinks it impossible, but then – epiphany!(ish)

Turns out Moo Won and Eun Seol had a great time at the amusement park, going on rides and goofing around, but the highlight of the day was definitely when Jaejoong’s… err… Moo Won’s shirt got wet from a water ride, causing Eun Seol to get all flustered upon noticing and him to ask her if it bothered her. She replied that she actually liked it(my thoughts exactly), not intending it that way but hey… Freudian slips happen to the best of us. That night she has trouble sleeping, thinking back on the day and on how he might think her a pervert for ogling his… shirt. Her roommate is bothered by the commotion and asks her if she likes him, to which Eun Seol replies that not only does she like him but to her, his existence is on par with that of Hyun Bin and Won Bin, god-like but untouchable. Her roommate scoffs at her patheticalness and I scoff because I’ve already seen episode 6.

The next day, Eun Seol arrives to pick up her boss, one shoe short after leaving it on a crowded buss. Who knows what unsuspecting stranger will pick it up and fall under her Cinderella curse? Ji Heon thanks her for showing up wearing a garbage bag around her shoeless foot because it just confirmed he couldn’t possibly like her, but then he directs her to his grandma’s shoe cabinet telling her to pick a pair she likes. This guy’s consistency is killing me.

In light of a news release mama Moo Won was behind, everyone is aware that Ji Heon is the intended heir of daddy CEO. This was meant to preemptively cause uproar amidst the stockholders for the incompetent future of the company. As a result, reporters are gathered in front of the office building, and when Eun Seol gets out of the car, they push her away so they can get to Ji Heon. He gets pissed off by this offense to his secretary and tells them to back off. They go into the building and he checks to see if she’s alright, but pretty much in the same way as he would his cardboard cutout or a puppet, hilariously verifying her limb mobility. Except proximity to his cardboard cutout doesn’t get him quite as flustered so he quickly backs away, being in “I have no feelings for my secretary” mode. But her saying he was rather dashing handling the reporters brings him back to “I really like my secretary” mode, only that means all his hard work convincing himself of the contrary had been in vain. You can actually see the thought ball ping-ponging in this guy’s head. Yes! No! Yes! NO! YES! HUHWHAT? “You can’t entice me, No Eun Seol!” Of course not.

Everyone in the office is talking about Ji Heon’s appointment as successor and seeing him in a less than positive light. Eun Seol tries to defend him but ends up being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with him, which leads her to excuse herself by saying she doesn’t see him as a man at all. Of course, he listens in on the conversation and gets all worked up about it, so when Eun Seol comes into his office, he tries to test her out and see if she really is as unattracted to him as she claims to be. He pushes her against the wall (Rawr!) and asks her how come she’s bothered since he isn’t a man anyway, but it quickly becomes obvious that they are both feeling some feelings of some kind, so just as the atmosphere is about to get really charged, she headbutts him away and then locks his arm behind his back, accidentally pulling him towards her again (Rawr?). Realizing the end and the means don’t quite match up, she pushes him away again, this time for good, and sets him straight about office conduct, except he’s too far gone into Rawr-ville to actually listen.

Eun Seol goes up to the roof to vent some of her Ji Heon anger by kicking some conveniently placed cans, but unbeknownst to her, Moo Won and Na Yoon are up there discussing their arranged marriage. Moo Won says he doesn’t want their (loveless) marriage either to Na Yoon’s disgruntled shock. Unfortunately, one of Eun Seol’s cans of frustration lands squarely on Na Yoon’s forehead, adding some physical pain to the bruise on her ego. Eun Seol offers apologies and her forehead (to be hit) as retribution, sending God Moo Won into a fit of laughter, which makes Na Yoon feel even more miserable and sends her running to enlist in a self defense course, but more on that later.

Ji Heon goes back home to find his grandmother demanding that the dog give her leather shoes back. Realizing that the dog was more or less willingly taking the fall for him, Ji Heon sneaks into his room where he can abandon himself to the thoughts of not liking his secretary. But since he always comes up on the losing (secretary liking) side of the equation, he throws himself into work, just in time for his father to spy on him and to run to ninja-grandma to report that he did not raise a disgrace after all.

The next day, driven by fatherly pride, Chairman Cha supports Ji Heon as his heir in front of the entire administrative board, only to be met with opposition from his sister in law (I have got to find a good nickname for her), but then, when he says he will stake his job on Ji Heon’s success in proving he can run the business, the sister in law turns it around on him, turning his proposal from a manner-of-speaking thing to a definite. Turns out, both daddy and Ji Heon’s jobs are now riding on his success. But hey, no pressure.

Also, is it just me or is there some weird non-business tension between daddy CEO and sister-in-law? Because she gets a liiiitle too irked when he calls her by her name, and they apparently had been friends before she married into the family. So… past fling? ‘twould certainly add an interesting dimension to the whole my son is better than your son, my management skills are better than your management skills thing they have going.

Ji Heon and Eun Seol are working together to prepare the presentation that’s meant to tell the world daddy CEO wasn’t wrong in trusting his son, and I have to say, the setup looks mighty cozy. I mean, if Ji Heon hadn’t fallen for her before, he’d be pretty much hopeless right now. Eventually, it’s this collaboration (obviously) that gives Ji Heon his much needed face-saving (and business saving) epiphany. However, by this time, Eun Seol has already fallen asleep, giving Ji Heon a chance to look at her all lovey dovey (and I dare say, does he have a heart melting lovey dovey stare or what? I mean he might be a walking broccoli-haired psych encyclopedia but boy, can he starry-eyed stare). He moves her into a more comfortable position and covers her with his jacket, noting that few bosses would do that for their employees. Yes, give yourself a pat on the back while you’re at it, you boss of bosses, you. But I have to admit the crazy vs. cool balance is starting to a’tilt!

When Eun Seol wakes up, Ji Heon has already completed his presentation. She praises his hard work and he boasts about being able to do anything if he sets his mind to it. Where have I heard this before? Oh yes, you might be your father’s son after all, Ji Heon-ah.

Eun Seol returns God Moo Won’s jacket to him and earns a lunch invitation in the process. She calls to ask Ji Heon if she can go, conveniently leaving out whom she is having lunch with. In the meanwhile Ji Heon is having a business lunch with Na Yoon, but when he gets up to leave, having concluded the business part of the program, she once again threatens to make a scene to get him to stay. Unfortunately what worked at the amusement park isn’t working anymore and Ji Heon coldly tells her that he’s over her. Ouch. But just as he heads back to the office, he spots Eun Seol and Moo Won inside a restaurant. He calls her to ask if she isn’t having lunch with his nemesis, Moo Won, by any chance. Caught red handed, she avoids a direct answer and pretends the connection is getting cut off, as Ji Heon is looking at them from the other side of the window. I wonder what makes a guy who needs to use sanitizer after a simple handshake stick his face and hands onto a restaurant window, but I guess he must be the on and off kind of crazy. That, or, you know, forget sanitizer, he has the power of love protecting him from bacteria now.

Moo Won suggests that they ignore him, though being his cousin, he should know that’s not a feasible plan. Ji Heon calls Eun Seol but Moo Won asks her to pass him the phone and sets Ji Heon straight. Ha. As if! Ji Heon goes into the restaurant just as the last fourth of this wacky square, Na Yoon, catches up with him, set on venting some of her own frustration. Ji Heon eventually manages to stake his claim on Eun Seol and interrupt the lunch, but Moo Won isn’t about to let him have this victory and says that he and Eun Seol will have two meals together as payback for the ruined one. Hahaha, poor Ji Heon, I wonder how many windows he will have to stick to at this rate.

The victory is short lived for Ji Heon, who learns from his father than on top of coming up with a proposal, he has to present it in front of the board. He tries to prepare but all he can do is imagine himself panicking. After all the hard work, this does not bode well. Wanting to quit, he shares his plan with Eun Seol. In response, Eun Seol decides to get him drunk – is this an attempt to out-hangover his panic attacks? Either way, her therapy also includes some punching so I’m not sure who this is meant to be therapeutic to, but it sure is funny. He confesses that he can’t speak in public; she confesses that she already knows about it and together they try to come up with a plan but mostly only manage to get drunk. The getting drunk also brings forth another interesting development in the form of a love confession. Well, if being compared to a rock having lodged into one’s emotional center sounds at all romantic. But at least it’s ambiguous enough to ignore, which Eun Seol is more than willing (if unable) to do.

The next day, the presentation is set to begin but Ji Heon is nowhere to be found. This puts everybody that has been in his favor, meaning daddy CEO, in a very sticky spot, and everyone who has been against him, in scoffing position. But surprise, surprise, just as they are about to reschedule his presentation, Eun Seol walks in requesting their attention. Within seconds, we get to see Ji Heon’s face on the screen, ready to video conference his presentation from a safe distance. The day, it has been saved!

Protect the Boss Overview and Episodes 1-3 Short Recap


There are times watching a drama when you can pinpoint the exact moment when you began to care. For the characters, for the story, but most importantly for the organic whole that drama consists of. For me with Protect the Boss it was towards the end of the first episode. It was my second attempt at watching the drama, I had tried once before a week or so back but I was so wrapped up in YFFM at the time that I really didn’t feel like continuing. It was through no fault of the drama itself, just a classic case of it’s not you, it’s me. So yesterday I decided to give it another go and found myself more interested in what was happening, but still, I wasn’t feeling anything too special, nothing really hit THAT spot. And then, just like that, it happened. That smile. Like a benevolent god(yes, that is a reference to future episodes) smiling down from heaven and gracing us (and the unknowing heroine) with his amusement.

Yes, I am that shallow.

But there was something about this guy who had seemed so proper and restrained reacting in that way and in that environment, like a school boy snickering in the back of the class because the teacher had said something silly. Naturally, the fact that the man doing the smiling is hot enough to melt even metal… well… helped. But that same guy had been there before, and his presence hadn’t had that effect (even though the BB Cream thing was hilarious), so I guess to me that moment, that added dimension of warmth, meant the beginning of my transition from laughing at the show to laughing with it. And from then on, things just kept getting better and better. To be honest, it was a little the same way for each character, at one point, they would just do something that would get me rooting for them, that would get me on their side, regardless of the side said characters were finding themselves on within the story. For Eun Seol it was a little later in that same episode, when she asked Moo Won if he hired her for her looks or because she reminded him of his first love, incredulous of the fact that they had chosen her on merit. For Na Yoon it was the epically hilarious ice cream vs. butt thing. As for Ji Sung’s Cha Ji Heon, he’s the one I fell for last (in episode 5, no less), but he’s also the one I fell for the hardest. It took that one “choa” and its delivery – and I was a goner. No, I lie. I actually began liking Ji Heon when I saw his cartoon character boxers, and then I fell a bit more when I saw him looking at Eun Seol at the amusement park. But since “you had me at cartoon boxer shorts” doesn’t quite pack the punch of “You had me at choa”, we’ll just leave it at that.

As for the drama itself, there’s no great mystery here as to where the storyline is heading. We have our A, the anti-boss with the anti-secretary and their unlikely pairing, our A and a half, where their working relationship takes a turn towards the inappropriate, you know, office wise, as a pit stop on the way to the B – blissful ever after. The only questions that remain are basically how this will happen, how many cardboard cutouts will have to suffer in the process and whether or not Jaejoong will take his shirt off.

And while I’m particularly eager to get a positive answer to the last question, I’m more than willing to embark on the ride that this drama promises, and that so far has been like – to inappropriately paraphrase Forest Gump’s mom – an unending box of crazy chocolates, with characters constantly surprising the viewers with their actions, not within the grand arc their character is supposed to draw but in the little bits of in-between that are basically what keeps us coming back for more. To be honest, I am not completely buying the rom part of things, not because I don’t like the characters but because I am not sensing a strong OTP vibe… yet. However, they have the com part completely covered and I’ll gladly tune into this show for some much needed laugh-out-louds.

Where the characters are concerned, to begin with the boss that needs the protectin’ – he’s like the guy from Coffee House with all his public appearance evading tendencies, except instead of being a writer, he’s Hyun Bin’s character in Secret Garden. I swear that made more sense in my head. But seriously, it’s like he’s the convergence of every type of crazy Kdramas have ever produced. It’s not just the panic attacks. He also can’t sleep with the lights off. AND he’s a germophobe. The thing is, though, that even with the “special” aspect of their characters, most kdrama guys find a way to work around it or to even have the crazy work in their favor. Nothing like a little OCD to help you terrorize your staff into unflinching discipline and clockwork precision, right? This guy, however is pretty much a joke around the office, except nobody dares to laugh about it to his face because he is the boss, and, well, crazy. He usually does get to terrorize one staff member, namely his secretary but it’s mostly for coping purposes rather than the good of the company.

But here’s where you get your first surprise – the show begins and you’ve identified the main character, so naturally, you brace yourself for the early portion of the drama where, traditionally you have to deal with the asshole exterior of our leading man before you get to the gooey core, and just as you get ready to deal with an amount of rudeness, arrogance and distasteful commentary at least on par with the character’s level of crazy, you find yourself face to face with this puppy hanging on to our heroine for dear life and speaking to her with the candor of a first grader. But first grader or not, he is much more aware of his emotions than the average kdrama bear. He is quite quick to admit his attraction to Eun Seul and doesn’t take long to even confess it, which is such a refreshing change from the ubiquitous kdrama dilemma, with the character asking himself “what might this pounding in my chest be? Is it a life threatening illness, the chicken I had for lunch, or… could it be… that feeling formerly known as love?” and then reaching for the Pepto-Bismol. OR from the equally frequent “I’m too good for you but I like you anyway, despite this being such a violation of my level, so rejoice!” thing. It’s actually Eun Seol that has to explain to him all the reasons why they shouldn’t be together (and he doesn’t relent regardless). I mean sure, you could chuck some of this up to his being immature and irresponsible, but he’s so adorable about it (not to mention insanely attractive despite the broccoli hair) that you don’t know whether you want to pinch his cheeks or… spank him for being such a naughty, naughty boy.

Ji Heon’s father is the CEO of a top 10 company and has every intention of making his son the successor. He runs the company with an iron fist even though business wasn’t always his vocation. In fact, he had wanted to become a boxer, before his mother forced him to become the head of the family’s business. He’s pretty free with the fist when it comes to his son’s “education” but it doesn’t come from a bad place, or rather it comes from as non-bad places as violence could ever come from. He’s very certain his son inherited his looks from him, but I’m pretty sure he’s to be credited for some of the childishness as well, from what I could see. Thinking about it, the whole family’s idea of bonding includes quite the level of physical violence, and while most of it is imparted amongst themselves, they won’t shy away from the occasional assault on a harmless cardboard cutout. I mean even grandma’s grip is pretty mean for an octogenarian and certainly strong enough for her grandson’s (admittedly feeble) neck. It’s no wonder our ex-bullying legend heroine fits right in.

Speaking of the heroine, not only is she not afraid to use her awesome kick-boxing skills to put a sexually harassing sleazebag in his place and then take on the rest of his goons in a scene reminiscent of Oldboy’s guy with hammer vs. many guys on corridor scene, but she is not afraid to speak her mind when the situation (or exasperation) calls for it. On top of that, she has this natural sweetness and innocence, but not the kind that’s indigestion inducing or inappropriate for her age. But while her outspokenness and cuteness are definite perks, it’s her utter desperation for getting a job that finally lands her one. This particular job – playing secretary to the “special” son of the conglomerate’s owner and God Moo Won’s cousin takes all of her patience and power of endurance at first, but as time goes by, she begins to feel genuine concern and affection, not to mention understanding for him. She’s both very real and very caricatural, but that’s something that could be said about most characters in the show. Apart from some of the features that are definitely enhanced for comedic appeal, the foundation of the characters is heartwarmingly genuine and multi-dimensionally human.

Na Yoon, Ji Heon’s old love and, by all indications, Moo Won’s current one, is probably the less likeable of the foursome, but that’s part of the curse of being the second female lead in a K-drama. However, she is given her fair share of redeeming qualities, most of which aren’t really showcased in her interactions with others(where she mostly comes off as entitled, arrogant or fake) but in the myriad of emotions she tries (and comically fails) to repress. It’s her emotions and her reactions to other people, her own little mental processes that set her apart from a plethora of second female leads that have tried and failed to recapture a lost lover’s heart ever since dramas have existed. I mean really, taking self defense lessons to be able to compete with her boyfriend prospect’s fierce secretary? Or smearing her ice cream on said secretary’s butt out of sheer uncontainable jealousy (masquerading as payback)? There’s gotta be some love to give a girl like this, even if she IS a second female lead, right?

And speaking of love, let’s talk about Cha Moo Won, god, man, hero (Jaejoong). Well, okay, I may have exaggerated a little but what’s a little exaggeration in the face of such hotness? Moo Won is the competent, level headed (unless it comes to childishly competing with his cousin) business genius of the company. He is set to take over the company his father had founded and that his mother is currently running, but his ambitions, and that of his mother extend well beyond that, mostly into taking over the parent-company, which is run by Ji Heon’s father. While he might always seem in control of his job, his emotions, his path in life, it’s the chips in his armor that humanize him. It’s the moments of honesty and vulnerability, it’s the little laughs at inappropriate times, it’s confessing that he’s always done the best he could and that he is scared that might not be enough, confessing or trying to confess that he is not a good man, telling his mother he is ashamed of his actions. That Moo Won is ten times more appealing than the perfect business man he is most of the time. That Moo Won… *heart melt*

I honestly can’t wait to see how all this will play out, and whether the characters will take a more or less traditional route, having some veer towards the full-on evil while others will stay on the side of the boringly good, or if they will mix things up a bit, letting these characters grow in complexity the way it’s been teased so far. I’m really liking the setup and more than anything I’m liking the characters and how honest they feel despite the comedic exaggerations.

Episode 1

The episode begins with the heroine narrating some of her back story. From fighting legend to dedicated student and movement leader (unfortunately at a third rate college, which is why she is having a hard time catching a break), all the while working part time to support herself, things haven’t exactly been easy for her. But she’s perky and hopeful that a chance will come her way if she keeps doing her best. And a job offer does indeed present itself; the only problem is that the employer is far from ideal – unless you like your bosses the sleazy, sexually harassing type.

Enter Ji Sung. He’s taking part in some kind of counseling group for people with panic disorders and seems to be having a terrible time. He finally has enough and leaves when one of the other patients asks: “Mr. Mask(because he’s wearing a mask and shades, not because he’s THE Mask, thought judging by the outfit and gestures, one might wonder), what problem do you have?” You mean, aside from the hair, right? Well, it seems like he went there to get treatment but actually acquired more symptoms of his illness from his fellow patients – which he reproaches his doctor about and then leaves in a huff. His destination – an office meeting where he’s supposed to speak in front of a pretty large audience, just what the doctor ordered, except not. He panics halfway through his presentation and has to bail, to the extreme discontentment of his father, but giving his cousin, Moo Won – soon to be promoted to god but for now a mere mortal, if by mere you mean gorgeous and capable – the opportunity to take over and wow the crowd with his skills. Ji Heon’s secretary nags him about attending a meeting he doesn’t want to attend, but after accidentally running into his father(whom he was trying to avoid) and being brutalized by him in an elevator for being the disgrace that he is, he is forced to go.

Coincidentally his meeting takes place at the same spot where Eun Seol’s new employer is holding an employee get-together (or get-to-grope). The sleazeboss makes a pass at Eun Seol, she accuses him of sexual harassment, he throws a drink in her face, and she follows him to the bathroom to settle the score. He gets beaten up and tied to the sink and she ends up being chased by his goons, just as Ji Heon was finally leaving his own meeting. Thus, he becomes the unwitting participant in the spat and after Eun Seol beats up most of the goons and makes her escape, he is left to face the consequences. A black eye and a popped lip later, he comes out with her shoe in his hand. Just as I’m about to add shoe fetishism to his gallery of crazy, it turns out this is just your trademark k-drama Cinderella reference, I mean, if prince charming had ever wanted to hunt down Cinderella with a rifle and reap vengeance on all of her kin. But you know, at least it’s not the Little Mermaid, which I am thankful for.

Ji Heon gets home to an apologetic dad, but when the dad realizes his son had been beaten up by someone other than himself, he springs into action and teaches the goons a lesson. Unfortunately, the press gets a whiff of this occurrence by way of Ji Heon’s secretary who was lamenting his bleak fate in a bar, unaware that the press’ ears were upon him. News breaks out that Ji Heon’s dad is something of a mob daddy, which gets him in trouble with the law, which he weasels out of by taking a community service sentence, which, in turn gives way to many a hilarious scene.

Turns out, when all is said and done Ji Heon is in need of a secretary and Eun Seol is in (even more desperate) need of a job. She has now been reduced to applying randomly, but this randomness brings her to God Moo Won’s doorstep, err… company. The interview isn’t as smooth as one would wish, and she is gulled by the blatant discrimination that is shown throughout. She thinks back to other instances of humiliation and can’t keep quiet about it anymore. Her little furious monologue is what gets Moo Won’s attention and a few days later she gets news that she’s been hired. She’s confused as to the why of the situation, wondering if somehow her deadly charms had done it again or if in fact she reminded Moo Won of a long lost love, but as it turns out, he saw in her the one thing the others didn’t have – a sort of fearlessness that stems only from her kind of desperation, and that’s just the thing Ji Heon’s secretary has to possess in order to put up with him. Not to mention the fact that gratitude towards Moo Won would make her a most valuable spy. She’s overjoyed, but the other members of the secretarial pool aren’t, looking at her as if she hadn’t earned her way in. But nobody is as displeased to see her as her new boss, Ji Heon. He doesn’t remember her from the other night, thankfully, nor does she remember him, but the antipathy is there. What next?

Episode 2

Ji Heon makes it evident that he dislikes his new secretary, from her poop-hair do to everything else, and claims that she is a spy sent by Moo Won. Excellent point, but as Moo Won puts it, what is there to spy on, since all he does is goof around all day and do no work. Ji Heon claims that’s a cover up, to which Moo Won retorts he can just go ahead and keep up the act, that way his spy will keep being misled. You know guys, one day when you decide to wrestle it out, I hope you get to do it in a mud pool and that there is a camera around.

Ji Heon refuses to acknowledge Eun Seol as his secretary at first, which makes her want to quit, and regret not being more specific in wishing for a job, since she was granted this guy for a boss, but then she decides to stick it out, and eventually Ji Heon decides it’s better to have someone to torture, even if it is her, so he proceeds to instruct her in the ways of being his secretary, which basically consists of being at the beck and call of a prissy pants chaebol heir with abandonment issues. Her resilience to his constant torments is almost fascinating to him, but despite the obedient smiles on display, it makes her think happy murder thoughts about him.

Seeing the complaints from employees piling up against Ji Heon’s… inconsistency, daddy Cha asks Eun Seol to get him to work no matter what, adding that her job is on the line. Eun Seol agrees, however she asks that she is given a month to complete the project and that she even be allowed the use of physical force. Daddy agrees, figuring that she couldn’t have much physical force to employ anyway. Oh daddy, if you only knew. Regardless, she gets permission to come by their house every day and drag him to work if necessary, which gives Eun Seol access to the Cha household and front row seats to the unveiling of Ji Heon’s Dooly shorts. And by unveiling I mean pulling off his covers and ogling his butt – it’s okay, Eun Seol, that’s how I’d do it too. There’s no judgment here. No judgment at all.

We also get our first shower scene, and far be it from me to complain, but why do we only get visuals of the shoulders? Cause, I mean, we all know Ji Sung has it in him. So really, why discriminate from drama to drama? Maybe somewhere in some k-drama framing guide, there is something that states full abs shot is only to be used for brooding showers, while spazzy my-secretary-saw-my-Dooly-shorts showers only get shoulders. Oh well, I’ll take what I can get.

The incursion into Ji Heon’s room gives way to another revelation, as in Eun Seol finding her missing shoe and realizing she’s in fact the mystery poop head woman (Pooperella?) who had caused much mischief to both Ji Heon and chairman Cha. Seeing her fiddle with the evidence shoe, Ji Heon comes up with the brilliant idea of having her find his nemesis – since, due to his status, he can’t. She half-agrees and they head to the office, where they arrive late enough for daddy Cha to get pissed off and administer another one of his fatherly elevator beatings. However, in the heat of things Eun Seol steps in front of Ji Heon, trying to stand up for him, and daddy punches her by mistake, thus causing a huge shift in the dynamics between the three. For one, daddy was caught on surveillance tape punching an employee, so he hands a check and an apology to make it right. Eun Seol would rather take a raincheck on whatever daddy owes her, thinking it’s just a matter of time till he finds out she’s Pooperella and that she’ll need all the benevolence she can get when that happens. The more surprising development, however, is Ji Heon’s reaction to the whole thing, from surprise, to gratitude, to the beginning of attraction and trust in the person he has finally gotten… protection from. Aw, poor lost puppy.

First, he gets annoyed when he sees the other secretaries take advantage of her so he tells her never to take orders from anyone but him. Then he has her clean the drawer where he keeps his first aid kit, not before taking out the bruise cream and placing it on top of it. THEN he decides she can’t even apply it properly so he offers some assistance, bringing forth the budding-attraction-facial-proximity scene that happens to most drama couples, but usually not this early in the game.

But what happens when the old secretary comes back in need of a letter of recommendation and willing to bargain for it with the info he’d gathered on the mystery woman? Well, the heroine has to spring into action and use her fighting skills to threaten her way out of the sticky situation. Ji Heon is not pleased that the old secretary fails to show up with the evidence he’d teased about, but there’s little he can do about it except throw his recommendation letter away for Eun Seol to find.

Ji Heon has to go on an inspection for one of the company’s stores but refuses to, until EUn Seol persuades him to do it saying that she’ll be by his side. However, when she goes to get him some water and he finds himself alone, he gets a panic attack that makes him crouch to the ground, until she finds him and hugs him until it passes. Of course, after the big moment of closeness comes the big push-away and the big denial of feelings, but fortunately, it’s short-lived.

That day, Eun Seol and Moo Won share just enough of a moment for him to give her some encouragement and for her to let the cat out of the bag on Ji Heon’s condition. In consequence, Moo Won comes up with a plan designed to put Ji Heon on the spot and shares it with the administrative board. Ji Heon refuses, papa gets mad and reminds him that he’s the only one for the job since his brother had passed away. Ouch. Multi-sting.

Ji Heon tells Eun Seol that she shouldn’t come to work for the following days because he won’t be going in either. Thinking he’s up to his old tricks, Eun Seol goes to his house to check on him, but finds him preparing for the task he had been assigned. She falls asleep at his door, he catches her and they end up preparing together, except on the day of the speech, someone shows up, causing Ji Heon to have a panic attack and leave the speech-giving to Eun Seol. The someone in question is Ji Heon’s ex, Na Yoon, and her being there was arranged by chairman Cha’s evil sister-in-law, Moo Won’s mom. Ji Heon’s disappearing act does not go down well with daddy Cha, so he gets kicked out of the house. With nowhere to go, he ends up at Eun Seol’s house, where he sees the evidence shoe had found its pair and realizes his secretary is the dreaded Poop Head he had been searching for all along.

Episode 3

Ji Heon can’t believe his eyes, but when he finally realizes what happened, he begins questioning whether this was just a coincidence or if Eun Seol had planned it all along. He doesn’t get a chance to take his paranoia to extreme heights because Eun Seol’s roommate comes home and mistaking him for a robber, she picks him up and throws him across the room. Oh my god, I know Eun Seol’s roommate is a wrestler, but Ji Heon is such a wimp. I love it. The revelation that instead of a robber he is in fact Eun Seol’s boss doesn’t really pacify Myeong Ran, since she recalls them vowing to kill him together if ever the chance presented itself. He protests the situation but that only irks Myeong Ran into… facilitating another close meeting with the floor for him. Ouch, that would have felt painful to watch if it hadn’t been so funny.

He leaves Eun Seol’s house, feeling hurt and betrayed more than physically in pain and refuses to accept Eun Seol’s apology, but as it turns out, he’s still penniless, phoneless and courageless, so when Eun Seol goes after him, he agrees to come back inside with her. Their little doorstep discussion, however, makes Eun Seol understand Ji Heon a lot better, helping her catch a glimpse of how lonely and scared he must be feeling.

Back at the Cha household, grandma Cha admonishes daddy Cha for always using physical violence as a means of communicating with Ji Heon, but not before administering some violence of her own to her son. I swear, someone should tell this family you catch more flies with honey than with a baseball bat. Still, it’s hilarious to witness daddy’s self reflections and the way he claims to be more handsome than his competing companies’ CEOs. Towards the end of his monologue it’s obvious that he worries greatly about Ji Heon, not understanding the reason why his son is so afraid. Cause, I mean, always getting punched is such a courage boost.

The next day at the office, they run into Moo Won on their way in, and Ji Heon doesn’t hesitate to say that his attire is the way it is because he spent the night at Eun Seol’s. She tries to explain the situation, making Ji Heon feel excluded and therefore bringing forth some more childish behavior, such as jumping in the elevator before they get a chance to and then poking out his tongue at them. He’s 7 and he doesn’t even try to hide it.

Later, Moo Won reminds Ji Heon of Na Yoon’s return, but Ji Heon doesn’t seem too concerned about it, something that puzzles Moo Won by the look of things. He and Na Yoon had met a few days back and she had made her intentions of winning Ji Heon back very clear to him, so Ji Heon’s disinterest is at least intriguing. We flash back to when Na Yoon had left and Ji Heon was supposed to see her to the airport, but just as he got there, he received a phone call bearing terrible news and the two never got to meet. The panic attack Ji Heon suffered when he saw her again during his speech seems to be related to the memory of receiving that news rather than to her, because thinking back, he gets a panic attack again. Eun Seol walks in carrying a tray and seeing him in that state, she rushes to help, only instead she drops the hot coffee on his lap, proving once again that there’s nothing like a burning sensation on your privates to take your mind off other things. This causes the two to get into an argument in front of the bathroom about how she is the cause of all the evil that had befallen him, his father and their company. When she retorts that she knows all his dirty secrets, ergo his underwear preferences and his sleeping habits, he threatens to expose her as Pooperella, naturally, without any intention of doing so. Their banter is overheard by the company’s other secretaries and within minutes, everything is public news.

Eun Seol thinks Ji Heon had made good on his promise to expose her, but doesn’t get a chance to confront him about it because grandma Cha had kidnapped him. Later, after getting scolded at the office and having a phone conversation with Ji Heon that deepens the misunderstandings, Eun Seol decides to leave and goes to visit her father in the mountains.

Turns out that her father had taught her kick-boxing and that he is living in the mountains as a hermit of sorts, after failing as a businessman in Seoul and having to skip town. Her father gives her a training/anger release session where she gets to vent the anger she’d built up against the people at the office and most especially Ji Heon, while he vents his anger at her cardboard cutout. Ji Heon then remembers the way she’d cared for him while he was at her house and how they’d fallen asleep facing each other as he lies on the bed imagining her sleeping next to him, just as his father walks in and catches him talking to himself. Aw man, this is funny on so many levels. Turns out Eun Seol was thinking about Ji Heon all along too, because she bought her dad the kind of underwear that he wears. Hilarity amplified. Seems like it’s fatherly discussion day because Ji Heon’s dad also has a heart to heart with his son and they seem to come to some sort of agreement about one using less violence and the other being less of a disappointment.

The next day, Eun Seol returns to face the music and impart some wisdom on her fellow secretaries with the help of some martial arts moves. She also drops by Moo Won’s office to give him a good bye gift, except he’ll have none of that. Instead, he advises her to seek out the chairman and apologize, saying he’ll handle the rest. And that, dear Moo Won, is how you get to be called God(even if you are one with ulterior motives). You know, aside from being gorgeous and brilliant.

The task of receiving forgiveness from the CEO turns out to be less difficult than initially thought, though largely because of a misunderstanding. No matter, Eun Seol is back in the game, even if the entire office is against her. But just as the chief secretary is giving Eun Seol an earful, Ji Heon walks in and rather dashingly puts him in his place. He then goes on to say that the only one who gets to abuse her is him. How… magnanimous of him (and also sweet in context). But when he hears that she has already submitted her resignation, he rushes to take care of it, only to run into Moo Won who had already handled the matter. Hah. The race is on.

Later that day, Moo Won and Na Yoon meet to discuss business but end up discussing their romantic past, or rather, their hormone-induced… encounters. Apparently they had gotten involved because he was too attractive to resist, or something to that effect. Either way, I couldn’t agree more with the sentiment. Really, who COULD resist? But there’s obviously more there than meets the eye, since their exchange wouldn’t be half as snarky if there weren’t any residual feelings.

Na Yoon then goes to meet Ji Heon, but is stopped by Eun Seol, who doesn’t let her go into his office without an appointment, to Na Yoon’s shock. Na Yoon turns to Moo Won’s secretary, but she’s not about to cut her any favors either (uuhh, tension).

Over at the meeting, the chairman announces his intention of making Ji Heon his successor, to his sister in law’s complete and voiced disapproval and to everyone else’s quiet dissatisfaction. Ji Heon however, seems the most burdened by this situation, but as he walks the corridor lost in thought, Moo Won intervenes and tells him the decision to make him the successor makes no sense since Ji Heon has no interest in the company, unlike himself. Ji Heon retorts that he may have no interest in the company but he’s not about to let Moo Won have it, and accompanies saying that with the appropriate (if you’re in kindergarten) gestures, and walking away. But Moo Won proves he’s not above the neener neener mindset and pushes him as he passes him by. Ji Heon runs to catch up and pushes him back, and so on until they get to their office. Guys, did you happen to hear me mention something about a mud pool? And shirtlessness? Cause, you know, I’d be totally supportive of that idea. Just sayin’.

Back at the conference room, it’s time for a sister in law vs. chairman face off, where each is supporting their own offspring, or rather using them to fight a much older-seeming argument.

Elsewhere, Na Yoon is fighting the urge to throw her coffee in Ji Heon’s face, infuriated by his indifference to her return and to her attempts to rekindle their past relationship. I absolutely LOVE the fact that he’s so open about it, that there’s no ambivalence or residual feelings like in most cases of returning past lovers. He’s simply over it and tells it to her face. Way to go, Ji Heon. You do the cartoon dinosaur on your boxers proud.


Na Yoon goes to cry in the bathroom, Moo Won’s mother cries in the elevator, and Ji Heon thinks back on his time with Na Yoon. His reverie is interrupted by Eun Seol however, who had come to find him seeing as it had gotten late. They go back to his office and talk about what it would be like if he became the chairman. Aw, it’s so sweet that she’s becoming his confidante.

Eventually, daddy CEO finds out about Eun Seol’s involvement in the nightclub incident and the plummeting of their company stocks and confronts Ji Heon about it, asking him to fire him, Ji Heon refuses so his father makes him responsible for making up for the loss by becoming the successor. Wow, daddy Cha, that’s why you are the CEO, aren’t you? Way to turn the situation in favor of getting what you want.

The next day, as part of his taking charge of things, Ji Heon visits the company’s amusement park to assess the situation. In a quieter moment, she reminisces about her first and only amusement park experience, and while the experience itself was bitter-sweet, she says the memory is a happy one. She doesn’t remember which rides she took though, so Ji Heon offers to treat her to the ones she’d like to go on today.

Nearby, sister-in-law is trying to set up Na Yoon on a date with Moo Won, being very transparent about her intention to get them married. The two cool the act as soon as she leaves, however and decide to go for a walk, where else but at the amusement park, where they see Ji Heon looking at Eun Seol as she is taking one of the rides. Hello jealousy, my old friend.
