Episode 5 rose in ratings, 10.1%. Now that the plotline is settling in, I think the ratings will be a bit better. I'm not sure about them rising yet.
Thanks for all the support for these recaps everyone! This episode, however, drove me a little bonkers. I want to take out both men, or lock them in cages so they can do no more harm and can be used only for me to look at.
"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.
Episode 6 recap
We left off with the face off of the male leads. In one corner, Jae-hyuk armed with his poo-poo face. In the other, Young-gul armed with red stilettos?
What will happen?
Well, Young-gul remembers that An-na's pictures was in Jae-hyuk's wallet and recalls the writing on the back. "Ah, you're the eternal love".
Since poo poo faces aren't good for fighting, Jae-hyuk resorts to his fists instead, and violently punches Young-gul in the face. Young-gul goes down and scrambles back onto his feet, wincing in pain. They trade words and Young-gul gets in a pretty wicked head butt!
Jae-hyuk has a feral look in his eyes and lunges at Young-gul who stops him with the words, "An-na is sleeping". Young-gul gets snarky. "Shouldn't you offer me a refreshment since I took care of her?" His tongue is much mightier than his fist and it is all Jae-hyuk can do to snarl, "Get out!"
(Nom nom nom. Two hot guys fighting. Nom nom nom.)
Before leaving, Young-gul admires the red stilettos in his hand and slaps them again Jae-hyuk's chest on his way out.
Jae-hyuk: Tell Ga-young to come to my office by 10 AM tomorrow.
Jae-hyuk: You don't' need to know. Just get out.
Young-gul: When An-na wakes up tomorrow, tell her I'll call her by 10 o'clock.
HAHAHAHAHA! Young-gul FOR THE WIN!
Young-gul returns to Glasses' shop.
A total aside: Now we have to cheer, because I finally figured out Glasses' name: Chil-bok. It's on a phone later on in the episode. :D GO ME!
Anyway, Young-gul returns to CHIL-BOK'S shop where Ga-young is asleep atop cardboard boxes. He notices her beat-up heels and remembers An-na's. Please tell me he's hoping to give Ga-young some sexy stilettos in the future. Please, please, please.
Pulling off his shoes, Young-gul lays down beside Ga-young and passes out - he's still really drunk. The motion wakes Ga-young who is startled by his proximity.
*Cue sexy music in Raine's mind*
She covers him with her blanket and settles down. Then, nervous, she flips over.
This woman needs to know that she has to make moves on Yoo Ah-in Young-gul when she gets the chance
The next morning, Jae-hyuk is in the living room, stonily reading the paper when An-na awakes and beelines for coffee. When did he get there? He is in a foul mood and warns her prevent actions that can lead to misunderstandings. It was difficult enough to start their relationship again. She needs to be more cautious.
An-na, of course, is perplexed and wonders if his father said anything to him. That shocks Jae-hyuk who asks if she met with his father. She did and when President Jung asked, she told him that they intended to marry.
Although the answer was to be expected, Jae-hyuk looks thoroughly unnerved and rises. She said the right thing, he tells her.
His face says otherwise.
I dunno about you, but they don't look like a happily engaged couple. Also, aren't people who are dating supposed to tell each other things, like, "Hey, I'm miserable, give me a hug?"
Back at Chil-bok's shop, Young-gul is hungover and eating breakfast with Ga-young. When she asks if the woman he was with yesterday was An-na, he giggles like a school girl. Isn't she attractive? We're the same age.
Nice buddy. Nice. You lose the points you earned for the awesome headbutt and the snark
Anywho, he thinks it's destiny that An-na showed up at Dongdaemoon. Ga-young wards off the unpleasant topic by bringing up another: how is he going to deal with the debt on his factory? How long is he going to stay at Chil-bok's store? What's his plan?
Ga-young has got him pinned and he retorts that he doesn't have to tell his employee what his plans are.
Uh, especially if you, uh, y'know, don't have any.
Does this woman know him or what? He's got skills but no vision.

Young-gul turns it back on her and asks about her discussion with Jae-hyuk? How will she get an order without any plan? He thinks he's being clever, turning the question back on her. But he's not, 'cause she has a plan.
She hands over a sketchbook, which Young-gul looks over with moon-y eyes. He has visions of runway shows and possibility - she brought him hope for the future. And Yoo Ah-in has brought me barrels of laughter! My stomach hurts so much right now from that ridiculously idiotic face he's making!
*Ahem* The further along this show gets, the crazier these recaps get.
So they're a good business pair with complimentary strengths. I still don't really see the romance between them. Just a one-sided crush on her part. And a whole lot of panting after An-na on his.
