WARNING: If you haven’t watched this episode, please be aware of spoiler from reading this article.
The episode begins with a profile of Myo Mi. Myo Mi, sexy world actress is entering the airport wearing a T-shirt which says ‘don’t give a sh*t!!!!’… From this very gesture we can understand she is a very bold strong woman… she looks super stunning in her vibrant goggles and handbag. The very moment her accessories become viral and is completely sold out of the market…sure, she does have a large fan base!!!! Myo Mi the woman who knows timing has entered the scene…..
Our most beautiful man, Dokgo Ma Te is being told by Kim In Joong to enter a scandal with Myo Mi and promises that if he does that she will release him out of her web!!.. Ma Te agrees to it and asks Hong Yoo Ra’s opinion on it… here comes the BANG!!!!… Hong Yoo Ra asks whether Ma Te has heard about Myo Mi’s rumours and reveals that she is a lesbian!!!BLOW!!(Am sure of all the things in the world he would have NEVER expected this!!) Ma Te is completely lost since he knew his most powerful weapon would fail in front of her.
My so lovable pair David and Bo Tong is waiting to see Myo Mi to give her socks. (Just a few thoughts about them… I personally like David a lot!! He is so caring, considerate and mature. Since nothing has been mentioned about his past till now am expecting a big twist here someday. As for Bo Tong, I feel IU look so small to be casted as a woman of 26!!. Love the way she bickers!! ’Bo Tong style’, really admirable. Although her character is really childish and unrealistic, I can’t help but just love her!!)
Myo Mi enters looking like a leopard!! (I think by the end of the drama I will be seeing leopard prints in my dreams even!!). So even she is given an eel look. She is trying out her new outfit for the upcoming award night. OMG she looks so hot in it. Of all the women shown till now, she is definitely the sexiest.
Ma Te wearing a black and white suit approaches her and she gazes intensely at him. (For a split second I am like is she a lesbian or not??). Even Ma Te feels so as he feels her gaze is similar to other women who fell for him. (well Ma Te was looking so stunning lesbian or not, no matter what any woman would fall for him!! Drool..). She is suddenly back in her indifferent attitude and asks him to meet her the next day…
Kim In Joong rings up a reporter (my favourite background music being played behind) and asks him to cover Myo Mi the next day. (I was reminded of old drama ‘You Are Beautiful’ days.. Even the name matches Reporter Kim!!)
Ma Te and Myo Mi leaves in her car with reporter trailing them throughout. (DMT in leopard print pants). A word on Ma Te’s dressing style. Kudos to our prince for his guts to experiment with such wild and vibrant colours throughout the series. No other actor would dare to wear blue, green and flaming red suits!!
Myo Mi and Ma Te go for a date. They look so great together that I had to remind myself about Bo Tong!! They make a great hot couple on screen!! While they are strolling we get a feeling that she is falling for him. After all he is our Ma Te! They were aware about the reporter following them and exaggerated a bit. Ma Te goes to the extent of reading her palm! (Sukkie looks so cute doing all that. Anyone’s heart would melt!!) When Ma Te leaves Myo Mi’s house, she warns that his life will change after the scandal and asks him to be prepared and gifts him a goggle.. lol. Ma Te feels as if his heart is fluttering for her…
Hong Yoo Ra makes a great discovery. She is being informed that Na Hong Ran delivered a baby boy in New York years ago during her college days!! (So it is getting more and more complex right?? Who is this illegal son?? It could be even Ma Te. I seriously doubt David. That possibility still exists. If it turns out that way it is going to be really interesting.. Or some other new fellow?? No idea. I guess we need to keep watching to know!!)
When the scandal becomes public, their office is covered by reporters and our Bo Tong is heartbroken again. Poor girl. David talks fluently in English with their American partners and says he studied in America (spooky right?).
Kim In Joong asks Myo Mi to do an autograph signing session at her uncle’s butcher shop. Myo Mi protests in the beginning but Kim In Joong threatens her. (What is your problem woman?? I don’t understand. What is the trump card that she holds against Myo Mi?? OMG I really really hate this woman..) Ma Te goes along with Myo Mi to that site and is really touched..
Dokgo Ma Te, the most beautiful man who would do anything for money, proud, arrogant with a bit narcissist side. But deep inside him lies a totally different self. The following scenes depict that. Ma Te approaches Kim In Joong and apologises for using her in his hard times and pleads her to stop hurting Myo Mi. He dropped his so full of himself attitude and asked forgiveness. That is the real Ma Te. The seemingly greedy man who has a loving soul! He said he deeply regrets about what he did to her and later she will be in the same place if she does not stop this. He also asked her not to make other people miserable because of her loneliness (Well said Ma Te) and leaves.
Ma Te tells Myo Mi about how he got caught up in Kim In Joong’s web in the first place. Myo Mi says “If you have big ambitions you end up digging your own grave”. Ma Te said he who had no one but just his mother throughout his life wanted to seek revenge for his mother’s death. And if it is counted as ambitious he would rather dig up his own grave. Myo Mi is amused by that. They are getting really close and personal!!
In between Bo Tong’s mother comes for a visit and Ma Te also joins them. The family conversation he has is so natural and the jokes he cracks are so from his heart unlike the forced ones from David before. It shows how well he blends with the Bo Tong’s family. He sleeps with David in a tent outside. Those scenes are really funny. You have got to see that. Although Ma Te and David are jealous of each other and at each other’s throat always they still respect each other and cherish a special relationship. (It breaks my heart when I think one of them will be in grief in the end..)
Back in the office David informs Ma Te that they lost their Houston contract without any reason. The same time he receives a voice clipping from Kim In Joong. The one in which he promises to be her lover. She calls and threatens to destroy him and his business. Poor Ma Te he is completely shattered and lost. (Even I was dumbstruck!!!!! How is he going to deal this??)
He asks Kim In Joong not to do that as this does not concern him alone. There were other young people who dedicated their youth (Bo Tong) and people who left their job (David). She simply can’t destroy all of them. Again another side of Ma Te, in such a crucial situation, he thinks of people who are beside him. He feels it is his responsibility to protect them. I was really touched by these sequences. Ma Te talks in a lost tone to Myo Mi and she asks him to wait. Towards the end are the most gripping scenes.
Bo Tong AT LAST decided to confess her age old love to her oppa. She decided to propose live on a radio show (classic Bo Tong style)!! She wrote their story in a letter and David is broken by seeing that!! (Dear Bo Tong, please tilt your head and look at the man standing beside you. You can’t be so blind!! Well it is natural Bo Tong sees only her Oppa in this world that everything else fades in front of her!!)
4 things happen simultaneously at the end. Kim In Joong revealing something really shocking about Myo Mi to Reporter Kim, Myo Mi being awarded the best actress award, poor Bo Tong in a fluttering tone about to confess her love via radio, Ma Te listening to the radio show but distracted by Myo Mi’s award ceremony being shown onscreen at the roadside…
Here comes the biggest twist and a huge sigh of relief. Myo Mi in her acceptance speech revealed that she gave birth to a son 10 years ago in secret. In order to cover up that she had to lead a fake life as a lesbian.! Blow! So that’s it!! The secret weapon Kim In Joong held against her!! You are finished Kim In Joong!!! yo yo.. Am sooo happy.
Myo Mi proposes Ma Te onstage and says he is her inspiration. In the office David grabs the phone away from Bo Tong (good for you) and asks her not to do that and is about to say something.. -THE END-..
Go on….go go….just go ahead and say you love her please…
Altogether this episode is really spicy and cool to watch with the storyline getting complex. A more humane side of Ma Te is drawn…as for me am totally trapped in Ma Te’s spider web!!!! Hope you liked my review…
