Hi everyone! I can’t wait to watch the final episode….
Below is the video link:
Addendum at 8:55pm: I’m such a sucker for kind words/suggestions. LOL. I wasn’t planning on writing the recap for episode 20–some of you may have noticed that I’ll recap all/most of Saturday episodes but refer you to dramabeans.com for the Sunday episodes. However, wanzhaf’s comment about waiting for the recap has cajoled me into recapping this last episode; it’ll be a nice way to end the series. 🙂 So…I’ll try to get the recap done tonight before I go to bed, starting now. Hopefully, the recap will be posted by around 11pm. While you wait, you SKKS peeps may want to check out the link below (Ha In-Soo and Yoon-Hee…interesting pairing):

This second one isn’t as good but it’s Yoon-Hee’s and how she still rejects HIS because she’s so in love with Lee SJ:
Later that night, Oska and Seul are at Ju-won’s place, preparing the setting for a memorable first night for them. They bicker playfully about Oska’s memory and their past. Oska repeats that he’s going to be a good boyfriend this time and that he’s hoping she’ll direct his new music video. Seul warns that she’s going to be asking for a lot of money, to which Oska replies that he’s going to be giving her a lot of money and then hugs her. Although pleased with the way their relationship is progressing, Seul jokingly asks Oska why he keeps hugging her at random. Before he can answer, though, Ju-won walks in with Ra-Im and asks what they’re doing in someone else’s house. Breaking apart, Oska replies in his irritated voice that they were preparing the wedding night room. Ju-won points out that Oska was doing something else when they walked in. Oska defends himself and says that it was only for a moment, just a tiny moment (Seriously, I’m going to miss the cousins and their verbal spats). Oska then tells Ra-Im that this is their wedding gift, gesturing to the bedroom. Ra-Im thanks them while Ju-won mentions to Seul that it would have been nice to have met Seul when he and Seul were 21 (ah, the riling of Oska just never stops with Ju-won). Although Ra-Im just gives Ju-won a look, Oska threatens Ju-won, asking him if he wants his first night (wedding night) to be his last night on earth (love the way Oska speaks). Ju-won clarifies that he was only implying that Seul is too good for Oska. He then tells them they should leave since he and Ra-Im have something to do, but before he can properly finish his sentence, Ra-Im checks him out of embarrassment and etiquette. Oska and Seul get the message, nevertheless, and happily leave still bickering with each other. On his way out, Oska asks Seul how she’s going to get home when it’s so late at night. (LOL) Once they leave, Ra-Im tries to scold Ju-won for his embarrassing comment, but Ju-won dismisses her concern, saying that they are a married couple now. He opens his arms and motions for her to come to him. She refuses. Irked, Ju-won reminds her about the nursery rhyme he’s been saying to himself all this time and tries to capture her. She again evades his grasp and pushes him on the bed, in effect making the first move on him, and they spend a happy and blissful wedding night together.
*Sigh* I think this is all I can do tonight. I hope you enjoyed what I was able to recap! But for those of you just dying to know what happens, here’s a quick run down of the major points for the rest of the episode:
*Ju-won and Ra-Im spend quality time together as a couple
*They go to get support from the grandfather who surprisingly tells them he won’t approve until the mother approves.
*They hear news that the mother’s been hospitalized because she heard the news of their marriage. Ju-won isn’t surprised since he sent her the marriage license.
*At the hospital, he and his mother come to terms: she “disowns” him but he can keep his job as president of the dept. store since he’s the best person for the job. (I don’t think Ju-won was really expecting her to concede defeat and then disown him like that)
*Ju-won then seeks out director Park. He acknowledges Park’s skill as a businessman and would like to place his faith in him as long as Park agrees to not scheme for Ju-won’s position. Ju-won plans to help him reach the highest position possible as long as it’s not his. (LOL)
*Director Park is thrilled at the reinstatement as well as the acknowledgment and returns to work. He snubs Oska’s mom who had ignored him when Park was unemployed. He tells her that he’s the type of person to hold grudges (his over-the-top manner of speaking is actually endearing now)
*Ra-Im announces to the action school family that she’s now married, so she’s now technically “older” than her sunbaes (alums). Her crush is crushed by the news (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun) and runs out.
*Some of the action family go to visit Ju-won at his office and threaten him in typical Korean-older-brother-protecting-their-younger-sister style...some priceless Ju-won liners.
*Tae-sung helps produce Oska’s new album…and boy, Oska doesn’t sing too well live.
*Oska goes to film his music video and realizes that the storyline of the music video is when he and Seul first met.
*Ju-won works hard at his job while Ra-Im continues her work as a stuntwoman.
*Oska holds a concert and regains a firm footing on his career.
*At the concert, Tae-sung leaves because he can’t stand to remain by Oska’s side while Seul and Oska get back together again. When Seul tries to detain him and convince him to remain as Oska’s friend, he declines and tells her that his gift to her is the title song, which is about her and Oska’s love. 🙂 She tells him that if he ever needs help, to look her up, because she’ll help him any way she can.
*Returning to the concert, Seul holds placards during the concert that tell Oska, while he’s singing Tae-sung’s title song for the 7th album, that she confesses the roasted chestnuts were her but not the cheesecake. She then confesses that she loves him, too.
*More cute scenes of the Ju-won/Ra-Im couple…and she even wears a matching blue sparkly tracksuit (that tracksuit’s never going to go away, huh? LOL)
*There’s a scene where she gets into the elevator and Ju-won follows her in, only to be caught kissing her in the elevator by his executives. (Love how secretary Kim takes out his camera)
*5 years pass…they have 3 kids and still no wedding. The kids cry in front of their grandmother’s house because their parents refuse to buy them a treat. Ra-Im realizes this was Ae-Young’s dream; no evil meaning as previously feared. The grandmother opens the gates and coldly ignores the couple and takes the three grandkids into her house for a playdate. Time nor the grandkids have not mellowed the mother out toward the couple.
*Ra-Im become director of the action school and show her power in a number of scenes.
*Oska proposes to Seul, who at first thought that Oska was cheating on her.
*Secretary Kim, walking along the Han River, finds the bottled message he wrote to Ae-Young back when he was on Jeju Island. Ae-Young is completely touched by this and hugs him…happy ending for them. 🙂
*Philip meets Son Ye-Jin, who tells him that she’s very much interested in casting herself in his script. Apparently, Philip’s efforts to get his script filmed/produced has been stalled for the past 6 months. She’s interested, much to his disbelief.
*Ju-won and Ra-Im try to get their three kids to sleep so that they can spend some time together, but the oldest one refuses to sleep and insists on sleeping with Mommy. (LOL…gotta love the competition between Ju-won and the son for Ra-Im’s attention…Ra-Im’s a bit “unfeeling” in her response to her firstborn, though.)
*The series ends with Ju-won and Ra-Im walking back to their house/bedroom after their kids fall asleep and enjoying the falling snow. She asks him if he’s never going to tell her about the time he visited her after her father’s death. He then explains that he spent the night with her exhausted, sleeping form at the mortuary because he couldn’t tell her in person how sorry he was for her loss, which happened because of him.
