WARNING: If you haven’t watched this episode, please be aware of spoiler from reading this article.
“￼Kim Bo Tong?” It was Ma Te’s first discovery on the ‘button’ through an observation he made on David while hugging, hopping around Bo Tong. Ma Te is clearly a fast learner because in my opinion, finding someone’s button is not an easy task. It needs a lot of time to acquire the observation/understanding skill. It made me want to know / to find people’s button as well (I’ve tried but I quit, I prefer a simple life).
Have you guys already guessed what Ma Te ‘button’ is? (Peels, don’t think about that other button). On a serious note, My guess could also be the same button brand choice, Kim Bo Tong. OR it could be his late mom? Well, I guess we have to find them in the next chapter.
After the button discovery, CAN YOU SMELL SOMETHING? *sniff* sniffffs* I smell JEALOUSY! David quickly let go of Bo Tong’s hand when Ma Te approached them. He asked Bo Tong to follow him and he put his arms around her. When they passed David, Ma Te turned his head back to David and gave him that haha-look-whos-got-the-girl-now! While someone was busy holding the trophy, I couldn’t help but notice Bo Tong’s hand resting on Ma Te’s *ahem* back ‘treasure’. Haha.
As promised, Ma Te let Bo Tong take pictures of him posing by the window. This was hilarious! He told Bo Tong that his best side was his right side so he kept posing showing his right side! (Personally, all his sides are my favourites). BWAHAHAHa I laughed so hard when Bo Tong asked him to lick his lips which he agreed. Then, Bo Tong took picture of his annoyed face (heyyy! Me too! I even love when he’s annoyed). He showed his jealousy side AGAIN when Bo Tong refused to go out lunch with him (she told him she had to meet someone) and went “WHO? WHO? WHO?” Was he being possessive or he’s really starting to like her? (of course we know the answer to that)
Ma Te took a walk with the Electric Fairy to thank her for her help in selling the socks. Little did we know, it was actually a goodbye walk when she told him not to see him anymore. “Can you see the button of my heart?” He told her that he saw the button and knew that she loves her. Being a mind reader who is skilled in reading people’s behaviour, who had seen lots of people with different characters, who claimed to have difficulties in trusting people, finally got her wall crumbled down by a thing called LOVE. As a farewell gift, the fairy gave him something that he can use if something is wrong with his heart. (Wonder what it is in the small box? Hmmm)
￼￼Ma Te went to his mother memorial site to tell her about his success which he then bumped into Bo Tong. She was actually surprised to see him there “You’ve matured” was the words from Bo Tong which I have to agree (From being playful, gold-digger to an independent man who now has an aim in life – to be successful).
Who would not feel like Bo Tong? Has the same reaction? When Ma Te announced to her that He had made a decision to go far with her. For someone who is completely head over heels, that person could only interpret that into one thing – being a lover! BWAHAHAHA When she was giggling and all that, it just had to stop when Ma te said “to make a lot of money” kweng kweng kweng~ Poor Bo Tong lol
Bo Tong and co invited him to a BBQ party at David’s place. Ma Te was annoyed looking at Bo Tong and David playing around that he ordered her to grill the meat for her. It was a Reflex action for Bo Tong to not refuse at his request. (I swear I’m gonna get into the TV and strangle this narcissist if he does not treat her right after this bwahahha ahem apologies for the girl power in me). A scene that we (at least for me) had been waiting for! Ma Te CARRIED Bo Tong after she got her hand burnt because she refused to go to the Hospital since David offer her a medication. Talking about the power of jealousy and being competitive. LOVE IT! After the hospital incident, Bo Tong imagined being married to her because He was talking about wedding ring (an excuse to cover up how he actually CARES for her). Oh Boy, You are so BUSTED (lol).
￼￼￼Bo Tong’s charms managed to get Ma Te a dinner meeting with Kim In Joong despite her busy schedule. Kim In Joong is not an easy woman to please with. She is very careful with her actions even though she was amazed with his beauty (Royal blue suit, side curls… ). She told him that she wants to help him as she knew that He is someone important to Electric Fairy. Ma Te had another quick meeting with her at the Korea Hospital because she wanted to give her a present.
“A beautiful person needs a beautiful card holder” was what he told her. He gave her a new card holder as he noticed the old one was already worn out. From her big wide smile, We can tell that she was really pleased with it. (Apart of him being sweet, do you notice linoui card holder? VERY NICE)
In this scene, Ma Te had learnt a very important lesson from Kim In Joong when she gave a fountain Pen to the head of surgeon as a thankful ‘gift’ for helping her. “A present given early is a bribe. Given later is a gift”
In order for his business to grow, Ma Te had decided to produce another batch of cleaning socks. He had ordered Bo Tong and David to search for a factory that can manufacture their products but to no avail. UNTIL, they met the director of a company called “FOUR LIMBS factory” in a socks meeting night. It was an association for people who are obsessed (or can appreciate the beauty) of socks. Honestly, I’m amazed by how this thing can exist. This is why i love about Koreans. I get to learn bout things that are seem to be impossible. Amazed at the same time found it hillarious. LOL. The director was fond of her that night because of her sense in fashion! LOL don’t you just love Bo Tong and her cute socks? hee hee hee.
After being rejected by so many factories, FOUR LIMBS was their last savior which did not work out for them when the director chased them out after learning the idea of how a sacred thing to him is going to be used for cleaning products! It was an insult to him!
Of course, our pretty boy came to save the day by appearing in an out of the world outfit during a cold season bwahhahaha. He appears in shorts wearing long socks but not long enough to cover his knees and calves (we could see how his knees turned red after this). This was all worth it when he managed to convince the director about reviving the popularity of the socks ! His speech for the director was like a mantra to bring the dead back but this time it was to bring back the socks (bwahhhaha). Like the director said “OH MY SOCKS! Oh My god!“
Ma Te learnt from the best “A present given early is a bribe. Given later is a gift” when he gave the director his favourite dish which was from Bo Tong’s mom restaurant. He agreed to manufacture the socks for them. The most sweetest thing is when Ma Te decide to name the company as “Bo Tong” . Awwwwwwwwwwww.
Another funny scene is when Bo Tong came home to see a huge wallpaper of Ma Te in her room to replace her choice of having animals on the wall! LOL!
A new challenge came when Yoo Ra’s Mother in Law approached Ma Te in the cafe. She told him that He could continue his business only if he manage to get $400,000 sales in that day! He was asked to leave if he did not manage it. Ma Te agreed to her offer with conditions. The day had finally come for the sales!
The episode ended with a nerve wrecking situation for everyone in the production when the sales did not get much attraction as the first sale! Bo Tong predicted they would not even get $100,000 sales with the current slow phase. Did someone purposely sabotage him? Will he get the $400,000 sales? Is he going to get defeated? I’m still nervous thinking about it! Can’t wait for the next episode!!
P/s: I have a love and hate feeling with this Dok Go Ma Te character. As much as I hate the narcissist side of him, him being possessive, toying the women’s feeling, I could not help but to like him! Hmph! I Want to see more of the other sides of him! I wonder how his love is going to bloom for Bo Tong! I believe Bo Tong’s secret (which she did not notice) ‘weapon’ is using Ma Te jealousy to realise that SHE is for him! I have to SALUTE Bo Tong for holding on to him long! Well, Can’t blame her. We understand! =p
