Hello everyone! It’s me again! My last recap was super long and unnecessarily detailed. Sorry about that, I didn’t want to miss a thing since many things happened even from the first episode of this awesome drama! ^_^ the word “Ma Te Oppa” Bo Tong style is becoming a trend in my house hold kkkk! Here we go Ma Te Oppa!
Pretty Man episode 2:
Our cute Bo Tong is raising money from her part time job. She remembers meeting Yu Ra in the hallway of the hospital. Yu Ra claimed she was his friend and you can see Bo Tong being a bit uncomfortable while remembering her. She thinks Ma Te didn’t have a car so Yu Ra had to give him a ride. She decides to raise money to buy him a car ❤ I love how dedicated this girl is! It looks like Ma Te drives her to set goals! Raising money to buy a car is not easy. I’m looking forward to more layers to her character!
Bo Tong sadly thinks of how Ma Te’s mother will not get to ride the car she will buy. Elsewhere, Ma Te is sitting alone in his home. He looks at the wall to see all the pictures he glued for his mother on the wall, the supposed substitute for him not being at home much. Angry at himself he rips those pictures of the wall. Ma Te then finds a picture of his mother and another man and he flashes back to Yu Ra telling him she knows about the password. She gives him a piece of paper with a number on it and tells him to call her when he’s ready. Ma Te stares at the piece of paper in his hands.
Ma Te goes to Jaek Hee and she complains about being worried about him because he didn’t tell her about the funeral so she could help. He immediately tells her that the funeral wasn’t what she was really worried about was it. She doesn’t try to hide it. She admits what really worries her was Hong Yu Ra. ( So , she cares more about keeping him to herself than actually how he felt after losing his mother … I think I was right. Those two are using each other. She gives him money and he gives her confidence since she got THE handsome guy) Ma Te jumps at the chance and asks about Yu Ra. What kind of woman is she? Jaek Hee describes her as “nine tail fox” who seduced the son of MG group ( one of the biggest companies in Korea ) and ended up marrying him, but she was soon kicked out and divorced with not much as compensation. Jaek Hee Says she’s dangerous and he should not obsess over her. I guess our Ma Te wants to know what he is he getting himself into! Yu Ra is not to be trusted? Let’s watch on and see!
Yu Ra remembers what happened at the hospital. While Ma Te was in the hallway his mother was calling after him saying something about a password. Yu Ra gets interested immediately. She doesn’t call Ma Te though she just fetches her mobile phone and starts to record the conversation. We don’t get to hear what was said. Did Ma Te’s mother really give her the password? Or is she just saying that to manipulate Ma Te? Her smirk at the end of that scene is NOT pleasant! I think Yu Ra is not to be trusted!
Ma Te arrives at Yu Ra’s place and she immediately gives him a history lesson. MG group ranked at number one in Korea. The president who used to be her father-in-law has a son she was once a wife to. That son is a CEO with not much power because his step mother Na Hong Ran is dominating everything in the company and the family; she is one named “Iron woman”. Ma Te says what does that have to do with him and Yu Ra drops the bomb! MG president wasn’t faithful. Ma Te is his bastard son!
Meet the electric fairy! This segment is specially written for the enjoyment of my dear sister Farina! Kkkkkkk. She’s clever (the fairy not Farina lol! ), she’s intense, she is insightful and of course ELCTRIC! This is Jaek Hee’s fortune teller! Someone who could tell she’s dating the moment she walked inside her door! She tells Jaek Hee that this man is destined to seduce many women with his charms and Jaek Hee asks if she can ever really be loved by Ma Te or will she just get to be used (Ah! Some depth in her character! So she cares about making him love her) the fairy tells her to never let go of that man because whoever is with him will get to be the queen! Jaek Hee smiles! Obviously, she wants to be that queen (again, he is remedy for her self-steam issues. I still don’t think she truly loves him. She cares more about the fact that she got the best looking man) the electric fairy hits again and says she sees a woman around him; Yu Ra was the first thing Jaek Hee thought of! The fairy says Jaek Hee will lose everything by the hands of a wicked woman and Jaek Hee being scared gives her the birth date of Yu Ra. The fairy is shocked and tells her she has never seen such a perfect match between two people since 10 years ago. This woman/Yu Ra will make something out of her boyfriend/Ma Te and will steal him. Jaek Hee begs her to help and the fairy gives her a digital watch you find in cheap shops as an amulet. She electrifies Jaek Hee with her price though! Kkkkkkk 22,000$ !!
After learning from Yu Ra how Na Hong Ran chased away all of the mistresses and their bastard sons. Ma Te visits his mother. He wonders why they lived like that when his father was that rich. Why did his mother have to die lonely and so pitifully while he was away to bring the money. There is resentment alright. Ma Te has many, not so nice things to tell his father.
It wasn’t easy to meet MG group’s president. Ma Te didn’t have an appointment but just by saying he has a message from Kim Mi Sook the Vis-president “Iron woman” agreed to see him. Ma Te asks about the president because that’s the man he wants to meet. Hong Ran says he’s sick so she will deliver the message to him instead. Ma Te smiles and drags his finger on one of the vases around the room and says the message is not pleasant. Hong Ran says it doesn’t matter since him coming without an appointment is already unpleasant. Ma Te declares he’s the president’s son. It took just a second of tense silence for Hong Ran to smile in a descending way, dropping the white king on the board of chess she was playing with she advances towards Ma Te “a bastard son?” she smiles and says many have tried that before and he’s the worst out of the lot. At least they brought a fake DNA test or a photo-shopped picture. She tells him to give it up because he will get nothing. She stands up and just like that smashes the vase he touched earlier and simply calls security to take away the “Trash” well , the “Iron woman” suites her indeed. Ma Te and the thing he touched were trash in her eyes. Ma Te leaves on his own being no less determined to pursue his goal. Hong Ran is left inside thinking about Kim Mi Sook , the woman who disappeared actually had a son and she seems worried! Whoever Kim Mi Sook was, I don’t think she’s like the rest of the mistresses!
Yu Ra asks Ma Te how did it feel to be treated like trash by Hong Ra. Ma Te says he doesn’t care about her. He’s after the president. Yu Ra laughs. For Ma Te to get to his father he has to defeat Hong Ran. Ma Te asks for the password because that’s the only way to defeat her. Yu Ra disagrees. She will not give him the password till he becomes a powerful prince that can over throw a queen like Hong Ran. She says he needs to get more power and information. He’s going to be her mercenary and she will not allow him to go into enemy territories without defenses. They will get their positions back together and then she tells Ma Te to start from here and hands him a key. Ma Te takes the key. A tense alliance between the two started for revenge! It’s going to be interesting to see how Ma Te will go through this mission while being supervised by someone who he can’t trust! Someone who is so clearly using him!
Leave it to kim bo tong to bring the laughs back! She suddenly asks her brother what does he live for and her brother answers “revenge” while childishly punching a big stuffed toy. She asks revenge on who? And the answer……. He doesn’t know. Lol! He’s a wanna be ninja it seems. Bo Tong notices an AD on paper. “Mobile fortune teller” she worries about the fees being high but then she spots her mother’s phone. With a smile she calls the guru. The moment he answers he tells her she’s using her mother’s phone then he proceeds to say she has love problems. The guy she loves is close, Bo Tong looks at her brother, and he is having thoughts about revenge, Bo Tong looks shocked! He’s my brother you idiot! The guru doesn’t bother with her words and proceeds! , he is having dark thoughts and heading towards you with determination , Bo Tong slaps her brother and traps him on the table hitting him while saying his thoughts are immoral , amongst all that her innocent brother is wondering what’s so immoral about him asking his sister for black beans , the guru announces “He’s close! I can hear his voice right now!!!” And just like that Ma Te appears at her doorstep calling for her , the guru ends by “he is your fated man!” ……… Bo Tong “Ma Te oppa!” kkkkkkkkk so that’s the second prediction! Whose prediction will win, Farina’s favorite “electric fairy” or Bo Tong’s “Guru”! Keep watching!!
I mentioned before how Bo Tong never fails to make us laugh, well Ma Te can easily be as funny even when he acts serious! MaTong interaction can never be described in words! Ma Te asks Bo Tong to come with him, ecstatic, she happily thinks about where is he going to take her, she also discovers he already got a car. Just when he starts to drive she puts her “pervert drooling” face on! It’s even more priceless when Ma Te gives her THE look and tells her to stop staring kkkkkk Ma Te remembers Yu Ra giving him the key and telling him it’s a warehouse key that will help him in his first step. Through the road Bo Tong smiles every time she sees a hotel or a motel and starts saying her good bye’s for young Bo Tong only to be disappointed when they pass it by. They arrive at the warehouse and Ma Te offers Bo Tong to work for him for life in exchange for seeing his face every day. Bo Tong thinks carefully and weighs her life and Ma Te’s face on an imaginary scale. She ends up shouting that Ma Te is crazy! Ma Te , knowing he’s asking too much starts to offer more but Bo Tong cuts him off by saying how can he put that face of his at the same level with her life! Lol!! Even Ma Te is speechless in front of such fangirlisim! He can only node his head mutely. In the background we can see the scale with Ma Te’s face is completely dominating the scale with Bo Tong’s life.
Bo Tong opens the warehouse and finds it filled with many many boxes. Ma Te looks amazed! In his mind he’s already rich! You can see such victorious smile on his face you can’t help but have the same expression yourself while watching him! Bo Tong opens a couple of boxes and they all have one thing inside …. SOCKS! Hundreds … No, THOUSANDS of socks! Baffled, she asks Ma Te what are they going to do with all these socks … screeeeech! Ma Te wakes up from his dream and starts checking the boxes like crazy! Well … he didn’t expect socks, that’s for sure.
He heads to Yu Ra and tells her what he is going to do with socks! How much profit can he gain from selling socks!? He might need years to sell them! Yu Ra says he doesn’t really understands how powerful money can be. She tells him to learn about it from Jaek Hee!Ma Te’s mission starts by gaining wisdom from the woman he seduces! Jaek Hee will be his first! Ma Te asks Yu Ra if she’s going to be one of those women he will have to learn from and conquer. She says that’s a sexy question but she has no answer for it now but she with no doubt curious to see where it will lead! Ah! Aren’t we curious too!
Ma Te proves again he’s as funny as Bo Tong! He sits posing so sexily on a couch waiting for Jaek Hee to find him and fell for him even more. Looking at the clock ticking for almost an hour he voices his angry wish for her to come already because it’s hard to maintain this pose lol! Jaek Hee comes in and as expected she’s already marveling at his pose. She asks what is he thinking about and he tells her about the warehouse and the socks. She says he should sell them. He answers “what’s the point?” he might take forever to sell the 100,000 socks and still only manage to get 10 thousands as profit. Jaek Hee tells him not to call 10.000 as “only” after all she started with that amount of money and she’s a billionaire. Ma Te’s first words of wisdom to learn! “If you look at money like it’s trivial it will go away easily. If you look at it as valuable it will expand. Think of money like a living thing” Ma Te looks enlightened. She asks if he wants her to help him and he refuses saying he wants to do it himself. Jaek Hee says him being that passionate about his work makes her want to fall for him even more. She adds that for that kind of man she will not feel it’s wasteful to lose everything. (I think Jaek Hee is starting to fall for him for real now! More depth to her character! She has some wisdom about money) Ma Te , of all things , remembers Bo Tong! He says she would have already started selling the socks if she was in Jaek Hee’s place! Our Ma Te likes Bo Tong’s dedication after all kkkkkkk
Talking of Bo Tong , she is already selling the socks! In a very unique way might I add! A spider web of manikin legs behind her back, she starts shouting around for people to buy and the police stops to confiscate her things. Defending Ma Te oppa’s things with her life she gets escorted into the police station. Ma Te is called to get her out and he endures a session of harassment for her sake lol! Outside he orders her to throw the spider web of legs but she refuses. He tells her to walk home then while he gets in his car. Bo Tong feeling defeated starts to walk away. Ma Te can’t seem to have the heart to let her walk so he calls for her to come inside ( kkkk our Ma Te , even though mean to her , has a soft spot for her and seems to trusts her! ) she gets in the car and chokes him in the process kkkkkk. You can’t miss the scene where Ma Te’s expensive car walks away with manikin legs pocking out from it everywhere lol! Don’t expect a picture! Watch and enjoy! ^_^
Ma Te house tour with Bo Tong! I will not spoiler that for you! You have to see it with your own eyes and hear all the cute noises! Some sneak peeks pictures is all you’re going to get!
Bo Tong decides to sell some of the hand-made things she creates from things people throw away to help Ma Te. With all her efforts no one gets interested until a young man comes and started asking her all kinds of questions about her hand-made things. While Bo Tong tries a hat for him, that guy just gets awestruck with Bo Tongs unique beauty! Main while, Ma Te is calling Bo Tong who is so busy attending to her only customer. Getting annoyed that she dares not to answer his call, he calls her again. When she doesn’t pick up for the second time he gets completely shocked! Ma Te , how will you feel when you get to meet your potential rival?! David Choi makes his appearance!
