*After getting a number of comments from many of you in the previous post, I decided to add a few more pictures to today’s post for a fuller recap of the last ten minutes or so…just my small way of trying to ease the frustration of having to wait for English subs. Sorry, I can’t recap the entire episode right now. These recaps of the last part of the episodes and the teasers take enough time as is…I’ll try to recap fully the last few remaining episodes if time allows. 🙂
Recap of the Last Ten Minutes or So:
Ji Sun walks along the streets of Seoul on her way back home and starts to feel dizzy and increasingly sick. She barely crosses a sidewalk before she collapses against a rack of bicycles.
A woman passing by sees her and calls an ambulance to take her to the hospital. Once at the hosptial, she is given an infusion of blood.
Meanwhile, the Chairman sits at his office, sadly reflecting upon his prickly behavior towards his wife in the past. As his brother enters his office, the Chairman comments that Ji Sun is a foolish woman; she spent her life taking care of a sick man and now she’s the one sick with a disease that may even kill her. The brother tries to reassure the Chairman, saying that they are looking for her with newspaper ads and flyers. They’ll find her soon. He adds that with a bone marrow transplant, a complete recovery may even be possible. Unconsolable, the Chairman miserably states that this would never have happened if she hadn’t met him. “This is all my fault.”
Back at the hospital, the doctor on duty tells Ji Sun that it is crucial that she start treatment right away; her blood count is too low. Ji Sun explains that she just recently found out about the diagnosis. The doctor tells her that she shouldn’t delay in getting treatment.
After being discharged from the hospital, Ji Sun returns to a dark home and crawls onto her makeshift bed of blankets.
The next morning, Woo Jinn races to the Gospel Hospital after hearing news that Ji Sun had been admitted there the previous day. He urgently asks for information regarding her whereabouts, and the nurse on duty tells him that it’s against hospital policy/patient confidentiality. Grasping at straws, he asks if she can tell him where Ji Sun collapsed or how she got to the hospital, and the nurse politely tells him to contact 119 (the emergency number in Korea). Frustrated, Woo Jin raises his voice at her and urgently asks her to help him find his mother who is extremely ill. At her startled look, Woo Jin quickly apologizes.
Tae Kyung happily meets Joo Young in front of her work to report his news. Having taken his police friend for lunch, he wasn’t able to find out anything since an investigation can’t be started unless there’s been a crime. (Ha!) In disbelief, Joo Young tells him that she can find out that much as well. She only contacted him because she was hoping that he could find out more with his police contacts than she can with the police. Undaunted, he offers to look into those who can create crimes so an investigate can be started. Disgusted Joo Young leaves as Tae Kyung tells her that he’ll help whichever way he can, especially now that he has a mother-in-law. He quotes an old Korean saying that the mother-in-law showers the son-in-law with love, and he never experienced that, but now that he has a mother-in-law, he wants to help find her. Joo Young shoots him down and reminds him that Ji Sun is NOT his mother-in-law. LOL
Back at the Jang residence, Woo Jin reports his findings to the rest of the family. He tells them that he was unable to discover anything other than that their mother collapsed on a sidewalk and was discharged from the hospital. The Chairman tells him to plaster the nearby streets of where she collapsed with flyers, and Soo Ah bursts out in frustration why they can’t seem to find her.
Joo Young calls Joo Mi to see if there’s been any update. When Joo Mi asks to meet her tomorrow, Joo Young tells her that she’s going volunteering with her Luni employees.
As she enters the school/orphanage (not certain because I haven’t been watching the episodes fully), she spots her mother going outside with a load of wet laundry. Excusing herself quickly, she hurries outside for fear that she may lose sight of her mother.
Spotting her mother calmly hanging the wet clothes to dry, Joo Young races over and angrily pushes aside the clothes. The episode ends with her facing her mother in confrontation.
Episode 45 Teaser:
Woo Jin: (to his mother) How could you do something like this? Didn’t you think that your children would be racing around heartbroken looking for you?
Chairman: (to Woo Jin) Are you saying that there is really nothing we can do for her?
Joo Mi: (to her mother) If you want to do all the things that you didn’t get to do for us, you have to get well.
Yoo Kyung: Woo Bin, are you still curious about Joo Young? (His defeated look is so heartbreaking to see! There’s a part of me that’s glad I’m only catching the last 10 minutes of each episode to blog. Otherwise, I’d probably be howling louder than all of you. sniffles…)
Woo Jin: (to his father) Mother says that she’s not comfortable coming back to our house.
Chairman: Not comfortable?
Soo Ah: Mother! Why are you living in a place like this?! Let’s go home! Please?!
Joo Young: (to her mother) Are you planning on leaving/dying like this and leaving a bruise on the hearts of your children as well?!
Chairman: She’s the type of person who will return if we do our best. (with more conviction) She will return.
Woo Bin’s Mother: Is she really that sick?
Chairman: Bring her here immediately. Right this minute!
Woo Bin’s Mother: I thought you were going to make Yoo Kyung wait in frustration (have her heart burn in frustration), but why have you decided so quickly? (Geez, I hope this doesn’t mean that Woo Bin has finally given up and agreed to marry that schemer.)
Chairman: (to Ji Sun) Are you waiting for me to beg? Do you want me to kneel?
