We’re kicking off our ‘nutshelling’ with episode 13 of I Do, I Do and if, as I have, you’ve been waiting for twelve episodes for some forward momentum, then this is the episode for you.
(a note: because these are ‘nutshells’ and not proper recaps, you won’t find a detailed description/analysis of the episodes in question, just the basic plot, perhaps with a few more words thrown in, just for fun.)
Nutshell: Ji-an and Tae-kang present their pair of shoes to the judging panel and – despite Na-ri’s previous attempts at sabotage – find that they’ve won the competition.
Tae-kang prepares a celebratory dinner for Ji-an on the rooftop and proposes. She decides it’s now or never and tells him (at last!) that he’s the father of her baby. Shocked – and then hurt and betrayed when he recalls her words about the bio-dad (that he’s just a sperm donor, etc.) – he then decides to take Jake’s offer and move to America (but hey, it’s okay, because he says he’ll send her child support; how good of you, Tae-kang.).
The contest win is made moot when its pointed out that Ji-an, although talented, is also soon to be a single mother; surely it’s better (for the image of the company) that Na-ri take over? Ji-an says she’ll walk, with her design, until the board reminds her of her words the previous day: that she’s not the only designer as Tae-kang collaborated with her.
Tae-kang texts Ji-an, saying that he has to meet with her (cutely, she primps, readying herself for his arrival). They talk and she says she can’t guarantee their future (as a couple) because he’s still young and reckless, and then finally, finally, they confess their feelings for one another.
And seal it… with a kiss.
Okay, I swore I wouldn’t post screencaps, but… who can resist smoochies?
