Dealing with other people’s problems can take its toll sometimes, and more often than not, you will slowly feel burdened by the weight of responsibility in your hands. And as Hyuk (Siwon) learned this the hard way, he needs to deal with his overwhelming compassion with a concrete plan so that nobody will suffer from the consequences of his actions anymore.
Hyuk’s First Challenge
Our hero’s first task as an intern was to convince Gangsu Foods’ subcontractor Seman Foods to sign a contract ending their partnership. Of course, classic Hyuk did not understand what this means and traveled with Joon (Kang Sora) all the way to the subcontractor’s factory to get their stamp. But because this is K-dramaland, they were welcomed by an unexpected scene upon arrival. The subcontracting company’s owner was on the verge of death while hanging himself!
Thank goodness, Joon was always the alert one and urged Hyuk to help save the old man. What a welcome scenario. Now… if you were Hyuk, how would you deal with this, right?
Luckily, Hyuk’s is the chairman’s son, so just like what Joon said, he has the power to change the situation. No matter how negative Je-hoon can get in discouraging him not to make any more drastic move, Hyuk is firm in helping the Seman Foods’ owner’s claim his rightful share in the concluded partnership.
Joon’s Painful Past
Because of the “almost” suicide incident at the factory, Joon was reminded of her father’s death. I am still lost in translation on the real reason behind Joon’s father’s death, but I am sure this has something to do with Hyuk’s father. Of course, it has something to do with couple’s respective families for more K-drama-ish conflict.
I don’t know what’s the deal with Je-hoon (Gong Myung) when he outright rejected Joon’s love confession when they were still in college! This drama must give me some acceptable reason behind this stupidity or else I’ll drop it! Why would he downplay Joon’s confession then sulk alone in his room years after? Did he seriously think Joon would wait for him all this time? Did he imagine Joon would shield new love from coming into her way because of him?
Laughing at your girl Yeon-hee (Kim Ye-won) for channeling her inner Cheon Song-yi (My Love From The Star) during that drunken moment! Why do K-drama girls like to barge in someone else’s house when drunk? Does that even happen in real life? Ah, whatever. I am cringing but giggling. 😁
Finally, we get to see our main couple lock lips in this hour! Here’s to hoping that Joon will finally open her heart freely to Hyuk, and let herself feel the warmth of having someone to lean on.
