I wasn’t expecting Jung-won (Lee Yeon-hee) to fail the chef test but it seemed like her skills fell short despite that personal cooking training she received from Min-joon (Ahn Jae-hyun). But it’s when she was told by her superior to quit because she’s in the way of other competent aspiring chefs that I really felt terrible. That old man just dislikes her. However, I hope that the said failure would make her reassess what she truly wants because we’ve known that being a chef is Hae-sung (Yeo Jin-goo)’s dream, not hers. Just like what Hae-sung said, she should now live her own life.
Finally, these set of episodes rounded up Hae-sung’s reunion with his siblings. He got to meet his youngest sister Soo-ji (Kim Hye-jun), who unlike others, seems to have no drama to add to the mix. Well, it’s too early to say but let’s see. The meeting was short and sweet—very different to his continuous effort to reconcile with Young-jun (Yoon Sun-woo). Hae-sung was able to convince Young-jun to help our mysterious ahjussi (Ahn Gil-kang) save his son by letting him sign the parental consent document but that came with a price to pay–Hae-sung will no longer approach him and that they will be strangers to each other from there on. If that’s what really convinced him, it looks like there’s a very slim chance they’d be able to patch things up.
To the romance front. I’m beginning to feel uncomfortable every time Jung-won and Hae-sung pretended to be cousins in front of Min-joon (Ahn Jae-hyun). First, I feel bad that, even though it’s unintentional, they’re still deceiving our clueless Min-joon. It makes it much worse because he’s been very kind to the both of them. Second, I cringe whenever the two act sweet to each other because the thought of being blood-related, even if it’s not true, lingered on my mind that I had to shake it off whenever they’re amping the romance. I really wanted board their ship without feeling iffy.
One thing that I find in this drama strange is how our characters just accepted the idea that Hae-sung has returned from the dead and just go on with it as if it’s a normal thing to happen. I haven’t seen anyone digging up how could in Earth this had occurred, even Hae-sung. Family is first, I guess.
No additional clues were given as to how he was able to get resurrected but surely, Min-joon’s father (Park Young-gyu) had to do with how he died.
