WARNING: If you haven’t watched this episode, please be aware of spoiler from reading this article.
All of this episode has flooded me with that cute smile. I cannot recap the whole story because all I was thinking about after watching this episode was just all that.
Dokgo Matte have proved how he can conquer women, even with the tough electric fairy. After learning about money, he is now conquering the electric fairy learning how to read people’s actions and manipulate their heart. We now saw how the electric fairy have mastered this skill, since her parents were deaf mute, she probably had to grow up reading his parents actions before learning to communicate through sign language. At first she has been very tough on Matte, not showing how she is also being swept off her feet with his charms, as she needs to stand firm on what she is known for, but Matte, knows so well how handsome he is, and how much he can make women weak in front of him. The tricks he did like standing in the rain soaking wet outside of her house, lifting her to dunk a basketball, and just simply staring really close to her is enough for him to know that he is scoring really close. He also tries to look tough with her, but failed when her parents invited him for a home cooked meal after giving them a lift home.
The hardest part in this episode is seeing Matte choking up reminiscing his mom’s delicious cooking, this scene have shown us how he became so driven because of this hardship. Although, he is back to square one, he is even more determined to work his way up all on his own, to build a strong foundation, to create relationships, and through these, he will make money, until then he will be powerful, so powerful that he will not be a slave for his money. Matte is on his way to re-create himself, through reading people’s actions, through their heart and not through their pockets.
This episode has took us into a roller coaster ride in giving us a taste of every characters life, and not just Matte’s and Bo Tong’s. Bo Tong as loyal as always, never gave up in helping Matte realize his dreams, from being the sole marketer for the socks he has been told to sell, to going to the ends of figuring it out with David, who by the way is helping only because of her, however way they can make this socks business to take off.. David for Bo Tong, Bo Tong for Matte, and Matte all for himself. such a one-way street isn’t it? Her love goes as far as letting him borrow that money she had worked so hard for many years so she can buy him a car, dropping everything when she heard him sick, and came all the way to the city to bring him food since he might just be eating porridge for days, and he repays her with giving her a chance to stare at him sleeping, which she enjoyed so much that she missed the last train trip home. Good thing David is there to rescue her when she lost all her belongings when she had to spend the night at the 24 hour spa.
Hong Yoo Ra is getting torn is different directions with this episode. Her husband is still lingering around, wanting to help her now that she’s alone, giving her a coffee shop to run, while her mother in law continues to threaten her to stay away or her daughter will go to school abroad. The electric fairy, whom she tries to convince to help Matte learn more to become the person she wants him to be tells her to stay away from him, and that the more she gets close to Matte, the more her daughter will be in trouble, when ultimately, she is trying to mold the very person that will help her get revenge, Matte. We still yet to see if the electric fairy is indeed have a gift from the gods or just a front, since she had met up with Yoo Ra’s mother in law bribing her to help her keep Matte and Yoo Ra off her back. So now, with the electric fairy being in the middle of this, will she help Yoo Ra and Matte or go the other way?
Jang Keun Suk has always been captivating. Whether he is crying, smiling cheerfully, eating hungrily, heck even when soaked in the rain! He knows how to make the scene light enough for the viewers to smile a little bit, even with just his voice, lowering it a little bit, makes the viewers lean to the screen closer. A stare make your heart flutter, its so full of emotion that words come out soulfully. I have to admit I am not loving the curly red top, but his face, his voice, the emotions coming out is always over compensating, that at the end, he still nails it.
