Haeundae Lovers: Episode 16 (Final) By Dramabeans

So what is the court to do when Tae Sung requests them to investigate him of his crimes? It’s an unprecedented move, and Tae Sung plows on – while he was ‘Nam Hae’ he married Sora and helped President Son sign by steadying the old man’s shaky hand. But once he regained his memories, he was afraid of the consequences and signed a statement that said he did everything while mentally incapacitated. However – that’s not true; he was fully functional and knew what he was doing. Therefore, with no witnesses other than Sora and himself, he wants to be put on trial for the crime of forgery.

The Defense Attorney – enlisted by Joon Hyuk – interrupts. He has a very important, final witness for this case: President Son himself. YAY! Someone got this man out of the hospital!

Dramatically, the court doors open – and Joon Hyuk wheels President Son in. OK – my jaw is dropping over the fact that President Son made an effort to dress in a suit and stylish hat, but what’s funnier is he shakes his cane angrily at his son. Joon Hyuk gives Sora a happy wink; he’ll do anything for this woman!

The Defense Attorney begins his questioning, and (as my jaw drops even further) President Son SPEAKS! He says that he gave his shares to Sora and Nam Hae, pointing at her and Tae Sung for added certainty. He says they never forged it, and he signed of his own will – and that’s an automatic acquittal for both of them! YAHOO! The Defense Attorney even tells Tae Sung to put his robes back on. Ha!

The son cries foul, thinking this is all still a scam, but his father throws a white towel in his face and cries that his only son wouldn’t even give him a sip of water. He’s rewritten his will, and has disowned his son. Tam Hee can’t accept this ruling but it’s too late. The court is abuzz… the real gangsters are the wealthy “educated” folk!

After the trial, Sora and the uncles thank Joon Hyuk from the bottom of their hearts, and Joong Shik comes running with white tofu for her to eat after getting out of jail. Dong Baek wonders if Sora will go visit Tae Sung too, but with her dad begging to go home, Joon Hyuk visits Tae Sung instead.

Joon Hyuk thinks Tae Sung ought to say something to him, like, “Thank you for putting President Son on the stand at the crucial moment,” or “Thank you, now I can continue being a prosecutor.” Yunno – something cheesily heartfelt like that? Tae Sung scoffs – he’ll pass on the kindness. But Joon Hyuk thinks he ought to be grateful for one more thing: “Sora’s outside.” Tae Sung perks up. Joon Hyuk also wants to apologize: he admits to being a jerk to him because he liked Sora so much, but he did it the wrong way. He admits that exposing Tae Sung at the shareholders’ meeting was a bit cowardly of him to do. And, may I add, juvenile, because he was clearly trying to give Tae Sung and Sora a reason not to be together.

Tae Sung doesn’t find it sincere, but accepts it anyways, and he walks Joon Hyuk out of his office. They open the door… and Sora nearly topples in for having leaned her ear against the door. Tae Sung bids Joon Hyuk farewell, and tells Sora to come inside: “You’ll hear better if you’re in the room than eavesdropping out here.” Tae Sung then gives Joon Hyuk a mischievous smile and closes the door on his face. Joon Hyuk is all, “Yeah yeah, I get the hint. I’m leavin’…”

Joon Hyuk catches Se Na running up to the prosecutor’s office. She heard about Tae Sung disrobing and asking to be tried for the crimes, but never heard the outcome. He assures her that Tae Sung is safe – he’s still a prosecutor, and Sora wasn’t found guilty. Well that’s a relief, but Joon Hyuk stops Se Na from going into the office. Tae Sung’s with Sora now, and as a woman once told him, they should both stop going down the difficult, futile path.

Se Na doesn’t care – she’s still going to go up to that office.

Tae Sung is busy putting his signature to cases, which makes Sora think she ought to be quick with what she has to say to get out of his way. But he’s not really busy; he’s just faking it to keep her around longer! He bets that all she wants to say is “Thank you” for what he did in the courtroom, but she says, “I wanted to say… you’re an idiot! How could you do that and risk your career? Maybe my father was right – you really are stupid!” He apologizes for becoming irrational at seeing her branded as a criminal, but the next thing they know, Se Na and Mr. Lee are in the room.

Clearly they were interrupting an intimate moment, and it’s enough to make Se Na storm out. Mr. Lee dismisses Sora, but not before Tae Sung tells Sora that he’ll be at Uncle’s Fishery later. Mr. Lee is severely disappointed with his son, but he finally gives in and lets Tae Sung divorce Se Na… on the condition that he never end up with Sora. Nope – Tae Sung will not agree to that. He’s going to live his life for himself now.

Tae Sung visits his father’s ashes, the first time he’s been there as himself, Tae Sung. He thanks his father for actively searching for him, even though he was sick, and promises to visit every so often. Tam Hee is surprised to see Tae Sung there, but she continues her tough talk – no way is she going to accept the court’s judgment. She’ll take the case all the way to the Supreme Court! Lady doesn’t know when to give up.

He heads out to Uncle’s Fishery, where the uncles are all busy at the restaurant. They’re surprised when they see Tae Sung and are unsure how to regard him (Prosecutor Lee? Nam Hae?). But they won’t let him close to Sora just yet. First they want to know if he’s here as Nam Hae or Prosecutor Lee Tae Sung. (It’s Nam Hae, since he just referred to himself as such to the uncles.) Yong Do then is all, “Sora was in so much heartache after what you did to her!” to which Tae Sung replies that he’ll never hurt her again. Finally, they give him the task of starting to help out with the restaurant, since he surely quit being a prosecutor, right? Ha – not so fast. Tae Sung isn’t giving up his job just yet.

Oh – so if he’s still a prosecutor, then the uncles can’t force him to help out with the restaurant. Dong Baek then asks the most crucial question: how on earth did he come up with the name “Nam Hae”? Tae Sung points to a box of ‘Nam Hae’ Anchovies, and goes skipping away to Sora’s room.

He surprises her while she’s in the middle of curling her hair and putting on makeup. (Of course she wasn’t beautifying herself because he was coming over!) Tae Sung finds her very pretty even without make-up, and I love how he reverts back to his honest, dorky side – even though it’s a little weird when he’s dressed in such a sharp suit.

They take a walk by the ocean, and Tae Sung has her close her eyes as he has a surprise for her. Sora isn’t about to let him trick her again, but she’s just acting coy. Tae Sung takes her face into his hands and leans in for a kiss… except they’re interrupted by Joong Shik!

Joong Shik is so happy to see Tae Sung that he tells him he’s promised never to call Tae Sung an idiot or stupid, and gives him all of his prized ddak-ji so that they can play together. Joong Shik also made a special pin for Tae Sung to wear so that if he were ever to get amnesia again, someone could bring him home. Doesn’t matter that the pin isn’t exactly helpful (“Address: My home”) but Tae Sung and Sora act thrilled for Joong Shik, and they head home a happy family.

Tae Sung’s room is still intact, and he finds his custom-made baseball shirt with “Nam Hae” on the back. He loves the gift, but he doesn’t understand why his number has to be 33. Sora explains to him that on their wedding day, he had told her to walk three steps towards him, and then gave her three minutes to cry or laugh on his shoulder. She was really grateful that he was there for her.

So why not repay him with a kiss? Tae Sung leans in expectantly, lips pursed, but they’re interrupted once again – by Joong Shik. The father wants to play a round of ddak-ji with Tae Sung, but then notices them being all awkward and secretive. Immediately, Joong Shik demands to know what they’re hiding. Could it possibly be… they’re eating without him?! Ha!

The following morning, Tae Sung has breakfast at the hotel restaurant, and is joined by an unexpected guest: Se Na. He doesn’t even notice her until she is sitting right in front of him, which is quite sad. The reason for her visit is the divorce papers. She rips the one Tae Sung gave her right in front of him. (Nooo!) She refuses to sign papers that he didn’t even consult her about, and she believes he has no right to have disrespected her so. She’s done nothing wrong in her eyes, except letting herself be taken advantage of too easily.

So instead, with dislike burning from her eyes, she hands him divorce papers – ones that she filed first. She wants one thing clear: she broke up with him. And she’s not going to ask for alimony since she’s richer. Dang. Tae Sung accepts that this is how Se Na will preserve her pride. She doesn’t want to hear his apology or his thanks, so Tae Sung says, “I hope you’ll be happy.” Se Na’s eyes change into one of hurt and incredulity: happy? She would have been happy if he had stayed by her! His wish is more hurtful, because if he had been sorry or thankful, she’d have a reason to hate him.

She rushes out, tears streaming, and bumps into Joon Hyuk. He offers to drive her somewhere since she’s so emotional, but she says that she doesn’t like seeing him whenever she’s emotionally weak, and opts to leave on her own. Yes lady – be independent.

Joon Hyuk makes his way into the restaurant to meet Tae Sung, who called for an emergency meeting. Tae Sung wants the hotel matter resolved immediately. Sora arrives, having gotten a message from Tae Sung. Joon Hyuk’s face lights up at the sight of her. Tam Hee also arrives. Joon Hyuk’s face falls.

They gather in the meeting room with other shareholders, and Tae Sung says that as the biological son of Man Ho, he’ll preside over the meeting with Joon Hyuk’s friend/attorney’s help. Tam Hee and Min Shik oppose this, but since they have less shares that Tae Sung, they have to let him run the meeting.

Tae Sung wants it done simply: those who want the merger, raise their hands. Joon Hyuk, Tam Hee, and the shareholders on their side of the room all raise their hands, and the attorney calculates up their shares. Then Tae Sung asks those who oppose the merger to raise their hands, and he, Sora and the Yang gangsters all raise their hands. The attorney calculates their shares too, and comes to a tie: 49% for, 49% oppose.

Tae Sung asks who has the final 2% of the shares, and the attorney says that those shares were given out when Joong Shik was still president of the hotel. Joon Hyuk stands up – he knows exactly who has those final shares, and invites the person inside in the room. This was his secret… and his mother comes into the room! It’s Sora’s mother, Park Young Sook, the former wife of Joong Shik. Everyone’s jaws drop, and Sora stares at her mother with fear and confusion in her eyes.

Tae Sung asks what she plans to do with her shares, and Young Sook says: “I’d like to bequeath my shares… to my daughter Sora.” AHH! Now you come and save the day, Mama!? Suddenly the Yang gangsters cheer – they won’t lose the hotel! Tam Hee sputters angrily that Joon Hyuk should never have brought her here, even though Young Sook is a shareholder.

After the meeting, Joon Hyuk arranges for Young Sook and Sora to sit together and talk, while he waits outside. Young Sook apologizes for the suddenness of her arrival, but felt that if she didn’t surprise Sora like this, they would have never met. She was always sorry for having abandoned her daughter without another word. Back then, she was just a Korean-American visiting Busan for the first time, and she fell in love with Joong Shik. It wasn’t until after they married and had Sora that she realized she was in a dangerous situation. She was afraid she might not be able to handle Joong Shik and the gang, and so she left to pursue her dreams. She never contacted Sora again, for fear that the life she had so carefully built with Joon Hyuk and his family would be torn into pieces. She hopes that Sora will be able to take control of the hotel and guide it in the best way possible.

Young Sook leaves, without even bothering to visit Joong Shik because that would be the least painful way for the both of them. She sees her son outside and smiles: Joon Hyuk’s father will not be happy when he hears what happened to the merger. She warns Joon Hyuk to make sure he can earn a lot of money, because if she gets kicked out of the house, he’ll have to support her! Joon Hyuk’s all, “Meeeee?! Support you? No wayyyy – you won’t get kicked out at all!”

Sora returns to the fishery and helps her uncles load the truck for a delivery. She gets a call from Tae Sung – he wants to see her now. Despite her insistence of being busy, Sora heads out and promises to be back soon. Soon Shin clucks in disapproval at her shirking work, but Uncle Hello Kitty reminds him that Sora and Tae Sung are in their honeymoon phase. Soon Shin tells him to stop acting like he knows better: “I’ve already been down the aisle once. You’re still single!” (Speaking of which – where’s Kwan Soon!?)

Sora runs to meet Tae Sung at the lighthouse and tells him to be quick about it – she’s busy! He tries to be all poetic and serene, commenting on the sunset and beautiful Haeundae waters, but she has no patience for it. So finally he tells her to just help him up, and holds out his hand. Sora grabs it, and feels something unfamiliar… it’s a diamond ring. Correction: It’s a HUGE diamond ROCK on a ring. Sora’s eyes grow wide, and Tae Sung proposes what he says is the Busan style: “Have my babies!”

Haha! That’s hilarious, but with a huge rock, who’s going to say no? Wheee!

Se Na is off to a salon, as she wants a new hairdo to correspond with the new phase in her life. (Her hair ends up looking pretty much the same…) She goes for some retail therapy, and as she crosses the street, her heel gets stuck in one of the manholes. And who comes to find her in this situation but Joon Hyuk again! He asks if she’s stuck again, and then proceeds to help her up, grunting all the while. When he pulls it off, he’s broken her shoe again. Se Na smiles – meeting like this so often might not be coincidence anymore, but fate. She is ready to leave but then nearly walks right into an oncoming car until Joon Hyuk saves her. Whooosh – and he’s holding her tight against his chest. Not awkward at all! I can’t believe the drama is pushing for this couple to happen.

Tae Sung visits Joon Hyuk’s office and sees Joo Hee there. He thanks her for watching over Joong Shik when they were all tied up with the case, and he now understands why Joo Hee kept his identity a secret. She blushes, and he tells her that she can’t do that anymore – he’s taken!

Joon Hyuk enters the office and starts packing his things. He’s been fired by his own father for losing this merger. That’s why Tae Sung is here to offer him the position of hotel president. He will offer him a 20% raise and is the best man for the job, since Sora has the fishery and he has his prosecutor job. Joon Hyuk initially declines, but the raise is tempting…

Tam Hee bursts into the office distraught. Who told her son to sell off her shares and go to Antarctica to build a hotel!? Joon Hyuk and Tae Sung have no idea what she’s talking about, and she moans over her lost shares and her son’s idiocy. (Oh good – I was starting to wonder if she thought the Antarctica expansion was a good idea, but it seems she was humoring her son the entire time.) Tae Sung tells Joon Hyuk that his first act as president is to get rid of Tam Hee for good, and skips out of the room. He’s got a honeymoon to attend. Poor Joon Hyuk, he looks so constipated at the thought that his first task is to deal with the most annoying woman in the world.

When Tam Hee calms down a bit, Joon Hyuk breaks the news not-so-gently: 1) the bank loan she took out to buy out all the shops in Sora’s neighborhood needs to be repaid, or else he’ll sue her for misappropriation of funds, and 2) she’s going to have to move out of her house because that’s hotel property reserved for the presidents, and he’s now the hotel president. Tam Hee is outraged by this disrespectful treatment, but Joon Hyuk has another idea in mind. Does she like grilled eel, by chance?

And with that – Tam Hee is kicked out to the streets, and sets up a sad little stand selling grilled eel right next to Uncle’s Fishery. She’ll have to sell eel until she pays back the entire bank loan. She calls out for people to buy her eel, but they all bypass her to go to Uncle’s Fishery instead. Uncle Hello Kitty comes out and yells at her for cooking so close to their property, and they end up in this five-year-old’s game of insulting each other and hitting each other’s grill. Oh boy – if it were not for the fact that I know they hate each other, I would have thought they were flirting.

Back in the hotel, it seems Soon Shin has resumed his duties there as part of the housekeeping service. He cleans a room with the maid that used to work in Tae Sung’s apartment, and they get a little too close on the bed while fixing the sheets. New romance!

As for Joong Shik, he plays in the new Kid’s Land, a play area in the hotel for young children to help promote families visiting the hotel. He has the time of his life as Joon Hyuk and Joo Hee watch on, as this would have been what he wanted if he were still mentally sound. Joon Hyuk compliments Joo Hee on executing this, as well as organizing the fishing tour with Uncle’s Fishery.

Uncle Hello Kitty and Dong Baek lead a tour of tourists and fishermen to the best spots for fishing in Busan, with Joo Hee as their assistant guide. When they all board the bus, Uncle Hello Kitty offers a seat for Joo Hee next to him, but Dong Baek pulls her into the seat next to him. Outraged at this blatant interception, Uncle Hello Kitty pulls Dong Baek out for a talk. “You know that I like Joo Hee, why do you keep acting like this?!” Dong Baek flicks his hair as if he doesn’t care, and says the guests are waiting. But Uncle Hello Kitty would rather get down and dirty and fight him for Joo Hee… if only the bus weren’t leaving without them already!

As for Sora and Tae Sung, they have their honeymoon on that deserted island, this time with a tent and camping tools, and a boat. Sora hopes they’ll get a falling star again so that she can make a wish. Tae Sung reveals his wish will be about having a lot of kids with Sora and to live happily with the uncles and Joong Shik. Sora adds that she’d wish this all weren’t a dream.

Aww… that makes Tae Sung lean in close, and he puckers up immensely. Hee. But this time they’re interrupted again! Because Sora notices that their boat is gone. They run to the rock and Sora finds that the rope has frayed, so their boat has floated off into the distance.

Tae Sung and Sora bicker about boat tying, and Tae Sung finds her incredibly naggy. This is the first time ever he’s felt so upset. Sora: “You really like that phrase, ‘This is my first time,’ don’t you?” She points out all the other times he was just as upset, which makes Tae Sung walk away from the argument (because he so clearly lost). Sora yells at him to come back and be a proper husband!

She gets pulled in behind a huge rock and finds her face inches from Tae Sung’s loving expression. They still need to finish what they started… and he pulls her in for a deep kiss.

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 15 Recap by dramabeans

Tae Sung is driven all the way to Busan – quite the expensive cab fare! But all he can do is stand outside, and merely wanders all of the places in Busan he’s been to with Sora. At that same moment, Sora is having a hard time falling asleep, so she looks through pictures of Diamond Bridge. Suddenly she gets a call from an unknown number.

It’s Tae Sung on the other end, but he doesn’t say a word despite Sora’s “Hello’s?” Sora can sense that it’s Tae Sung, and they stay on the line in silence together. He finally hangs up, and then calls for a cab to bring him back to Seoul. (Poor cabbie was going to go home too!) Sora runs outside the fishery looking for Tae Sung, and misses him completely as his taxi drives past her.

She goes back home, and finds her rain boots sitting on the porch bench. The necklace of Diamond Bridge hangs around one of the shoes. He’s been here! Too bad he never let her see his face.

When Tae Sung arrives outside his home in Seoul it’s early morning, and Se Na catches him coming out of a Busan cab. He couldn’t have… really?! She’s so mad, but Tae Sung doesn’t bother explaining. She’ll never understand him anyway. He advises her to change her feelings for him. That might be faster than waiting for him to regard her as a wife.

Tae Sung’s boss – Prosecutor Ahn – repeats that he’s been transferred to Busan, but Tae Sung reacts differently: he wants to be re-transferred to anywhere but Busan! (Noo!) Prosecutor Ahn finds Tae Sung so odd for not accepting the transfer, and calls Mr. Lee about it.

Mr. Lee himself is having breakfast with Se Na, and they’re both in shock when they hear that Tae Sung was transferred to Busan by the prosecutor’s office. Mr. Lee assures both Prosecutor Ahn and Se Na that he’ll take care of it. Transfers happen to prosecutors all the time, but he’ll make sure Tae Sung never ends up in Busan.

Tae Sung enters the office to find Upset Stomach enjoying his ramen, thinking that Tae Sung will be out for the day. Upset Stomach quickly offers to open up the windows, thinking that Tae Sung hates ramen. Nope! The Tae Sung who’s returned actually loves ramen, and asks for a bowl himself. Poor Upset Stomach – he now feels like Tae Sung is a complete psychopath, being all normal, and fears that he won’t keep his job any longer.

Sora helps her father get ready for another day of school, and he excitedly tells her that the class is going to make rice cakes for Chuseok. He also requests that Sora kick the Yang gangsters out of the house, otherwise his little friends can’t come over and play. Haha that’s so adorable, and Sora agrees to do so. One more thing – Joong Shik asks where Tae Sung has gone. He misses him, and wants to give him rice cakes, and promises to never call Tae Sung stupid ever again. That saddens Sora again, since it’s so clear her father really liked Tae Sung. But at least he’s always with her through the necklace.

Sora and the uncles arrive at the hotel to make their mackerel delivery, and the Yang gangsters all come out to the loading dock to greet her respectfully. These henchmen are starting to crack me up. Sora tells them to stop embarrassing them like this, acting all gangster-like, and forbids them from coming to their home. All Min Shik wants is to make sure that their shares are protected and that the merger doesn’t happen. Until then, they’ll service the Go family in any way, including unloading the truck.

Min Shik and his men bump into Tam Hee on the way into the hotel, and boy is she displeased to see them. The feeling is mutual, as Min Shik no longer feels obligated to pay proper respect to her. She was only a madame when she was Man Ho’s wife; now she’s nothing. That enrages her further, and she kicks the boxes down and stomps on the mackerel.

Sora witnesses the scene and shoves Tam Hee out of the way to stop her from harming her fish. Well that’s just what Tam Hee needed – another reason to fight Sora. But then Ga Joon pulls her back before she can attack, and tells her to stop stepping on these poor dead mackerel that are just oh-so-delicious. Haha – I love how shocked everyone is over Ga Joon’s humanity. She pushes her son away, and then goes on to beat Min Shik and his men for treating her like some common housewife.

The riot gets a little out of hand, but it’s a pretty enjoyable sight to bear for Dong Baek and Uncle Hello Kitty.

Se Na returns home to find Tae Sung packing his things. He pours a cup of juice for her as they talk, and Se Na is surprised by the gesture – this is the first time ever that he’s done something for her. All the other times, she’s either been initiating their dates, or doing something for him. He feels grateful for receiving her unconditional love, but they obviously cannot continue further at this point.

And then he gives her the divorce papers. Se Na refuses to sign them – why did he request a divorce without her permission?! She is willing to sacrifice her entire life as long as she’s with him, but Tae Sung wants to live his own life. If he had a choice, he’d rather be Nam Hae than Lee Tae Sung.

Se Na reminds him that he promised to stay by her side as soon as he returned from the case in Busan while she was in the hospital. And now, he’s going to break the promise? If they divorce now, there is no way he can continue living the life he has now, as Mr. Lee will most certainly disown him. Ha – not like Tae Sung really cares about that… right?

Dong Baek and Uncle Hello Kitty have a riotous time reliving the moments from Tam Hee’s fight with the gangsters on his phone. They spot Tae Pyong Yang standing in the distance in the lobby though; if the Yang gangsters caught him, they would never let him off easy. Instead of getting involved, Sora tells them they need to wait for Joong Shik at home, and so they drive off.

Turns out Pyong Yang is at the hotel – in a disguise of course – to see his dear son Ga Joon. They make plans to meet in their original meeting spot, as their first rendezvous was interrupted by Tam Hee’s fight. Ga Joon and his mother head down to the lobby, waiting for the car, and Pyong Yang waits by the doors for when the coast is clear. But Min Shik and his men end up kidnapping both Tam Hee and Ga Joon!

Having felt disrespected by a woman who treats them like inferiors and had the gall to manipulate their loyalty, they planned to take her away and teach her a lesson. Unfortunately Pyong Yang witnesses it all and follows them in a taxi.

They end up in the woods, where Ga Joon and Tam Hee are taped up to trees. Tam Hee isn’t scared of them – if Min Shik wants to kill her, go ahead! Min Shik gives her an ultimatum – either she signs the petition to rid the casino and put her support behind Sora, or she takes Ga Joon and leaves the hotel quietly. Ha, like Tam Hee is going to back down so easily? Min Shik and his men leave, with the intent of leaving Tam Hee there for three hours and hopefully break her spirit. Little do they know, Pyong Yang is there to save the day!

Well, after he takes a picture of them in their situation first. Tam Hee sure knows how to get evidence so that she can file lawsuits really well.

The police are tired of listening to Tam Hee’s numerous complaints but they have to go and arrest Min Shik and his men anyway. They interrupt another board meeting (where the gangsters are still opposing the merger) to haul Min Shik and his men away, which confuses Joon Hyuk yet again. What is everyone doing outside of his plan!? The lawsuit also implicates the uncles at the fishery, so they’re hauled off. (Joong Shik, thankfully, can just go to kindergarten.) Joon Hyuk arrives at the fishery in time to see the uncles and Sora leave, and he immediately calls up Tam Hee.

That wretch is currently in the hospital with her son, faking a whole bunch of injuries to milk it all. She pulls out all her acting skills to play the beleaguered victim here, and cries out that her only crime of hiding her son’s birth father can’t be a motive to kill her! Ga Joon: “But Mom, that news was really shocking to me too.” HA! I love that he’s not the most helpful or supportive son ever. Tam Hee cries that she’ll pull out her shares and then go kill herself in the Haeundae ocean.

Though we never hear Joon Hyuk’s response, I’m pretty sure he said, “Okay – cool beans!”

In the holding cell, Soon Shin berates Min Shik and his men. This is why he didn’t want those Yang gangsters near them, because now the uncles all got caught up in their mess! But then Min Shik blames it on his other lackey – I’ll call him Mohawk because he has a tiny one – for ordering beer and falling asleep, so they couldn’t go and untie Tam Hee from the tree. Mohawk turns it on Min Shik: “You ordered the soju!!”

Joon Hyuk pleads with his lawyer friend to get Sora out of jail as soon as possible, making it very obvious that he’s doing everything for her alone. He’s at his wit’s end because he has to go to Seoul regarding the merger, and can’t help her. Meanwhile Tae Sung- the best lawyer for this job – is getting hauled in front of all his superiors at the Prosecutors’ Office because of his recent demand to be reassigned somewhere else. His superiors are insulted that Tae Sung thinks he has so much power now because of his father and father-in-law. Tae Sung always causes problems for them too; last time he caused an uproar with the investigators.

Tae Sung says that he can’t explain his personal reason for not going to Busan, and if he has no choice he’ll go. Anyone would be a fool to give up being assigned to Busan because it’s such a good place to make a name for himself and continue his career. He adds that anyone who knows him would know that he never takes advantage of his family background. Instead of having insulted them, he feels insulted by his superiors’ insinuations of using favors and leaves the office. Tae Sung – once you’re in Seoul, you become quite a pain in the butt, don’t ya?

Mr. Lee meets with Joon Hyuk in Seoul to go over the shares. It’s a shame that Joon Hyuk can’t get more shares, because they’ll need 50% to get managing power over the hotel. He adds that Sora’s been sued for criminal activity by Tam Hee, so if she’s indicted, it will help stop her progress in getting the hotel back. (Not like she was trying very hard to get it back anyway.) Mr. Lee then gets a call from the prosecutor’s office that Tae Sung has agreed to be transferred to Busan, and there’s nothing the father can do about it.

The transfer means that Tae Sung will be leaving Upset Stomach again – and Upset Stomach will now be Happy Stomach again!

Tae Sung checks in to Haeundae Hotel — Ha! I can’t believe he’s staying there – and sees a woman with rain boots walk across the lobby. It’s not Sora though… That evening, he gets a visitor in the form of Se Na! Though he has nothing to say to her, she invites herself in. She admits that she did have someone following him recently, but that person said he was a pretty boring guy. She’ll accept that he must be fated to stay in Busan, and so she’ll move down to Busan too. She won’t nag him – though her presence is bad enough – and wants to start over. Tae Sung once again tells her frankly that there’s nothing they can do. They cannot get back together, and she’s holding on to a pointless dream.

Se Na knows that Tae Sung is barely hanging on to his sanity in dealing with his family and their expectations, and she is convinced it’s because Tae Sung is trying to find a way back to her. What lies. He’s barely hanging on because he’s trying his best to protect Sora. Se Na bursts: “Why am I not the one!?” But she doesn’t stay to hear his answer and slams the door on her way out.

Joong Shik is waiting around at Joon Hyuk’s office and being watched over by Joo Hee temporarily. She eats his rice cakes respectfully (not enjoyably, because they doesn’t look too sweet) because there’s no one else he can give them to. :( Joong Shik knows that Sora and Tae Sung must have had a fight because he no longer sees his favorite son-in-law and can’t give him rice cakes. In comes Tam Hee wearing the craziest tiger striped outfit ever, feeling very triumphant because Joong Shik has nowhere else to go now but to Joon Hyuk’s office.

The gangsters, uncles, and Sora go speak to their lawyer, Lee Tae Sung, who ends up being none other than Sung Dong Il! Min Shik explains that Sora and the uncles were never involved in the tying up of Tam Hee to a tree. The uncles feel that it’s unfair to be dragged in because the Yang gangsters are their rivals, but Investigator Sung points out that rivals don’t usually eat or play baseball together. He has Dong Baek type up the statement since he’s feeling lazy, but then the new prosecutor comes in… the real Tae Sung!

Well aren’t Sora and the uncles in for a surprise. Sung teases that Tae Sung must be here to give them food or is Sora’s boyfriend, and he treats him with utter disrespect… until Tae Sung says, “Hey the Chinese characters (for his name) on the name plate are wrong, so make sure they change it.” Whoops! Sung instantly turns on the charm and is suddenly respectful to the new prosecutor coming in from Seoul. Tae Sung gestures for him to get out of the way, and he takes over the investigation.

Joon Hyuk’s assistant informs him that Sora and the gangsters are all getting interrogated by their assigned Prosecutor. It’s some guy the assistant doesn’t recognize, a prosecutor from Seoul named Lee Tae Sung. Joon Hyuk: What!?

Tam Hee goes to meet the prosecutor and starts yelling at Tae Sung to read her case file carefully. He’d better not show any bias! She starts her yelling rant again and Tae Sung dismisses her, having had enough of her “testimony.” After she leaves, Sung says that based on his “awesome” instinct, he believes that Tam Hee’s testimony is true. There are no witnesses for Sora when she claims that she didn’t forge the signature anyway. He adds that the Yang gangsters probably didn’t act on their own, especially since Min Shik claims he’s part of the Go family gangsters. (Oh loyalties…) So why not indict them?

Tae Sung: “Are you the prosecutor? You’re not, I am!” Sung Dong Il: “I know… but I told you I have 25 years of experience and have really good instincts!” Ha! Tae Sung still kicks him out, and promptly calls his superior for Investigator Sung to be reassigned somewhere else. (Haha – he’s not even a real prosecutor!) He then has everyone else be led back to their holding cell except for Sora, so that they can have a private chat.

It’s an awkward chat, considering that Sora is now a criminal, and he’s a prosecutor. She compliments him, noting that the job seems to suit him well, but he tells her to hush – she’s in for a very serious crime right now. If she didn’t do anything wrong, why isn’t she denying it? It’s because Min Shik and his men keep insisting that they’re now part of the Go family, and follow whatever they say, and yet say that Sora didn’t order them to attack Tam Hee. Those conflicting statements make it hard to believe that Sora is not in charge. In addition, she can’t let her sick father pay for his crimes anymore, so she’ll take the blame. It’s a good thing Tae Sung signed the testimony his father wrote; he can get away with everything and live his life blame-free.

I hate how she loves him so much she just wants him to be happy.

He has her escorted back to her cell, and sees her wearing his necklace. As she walks through the halls, she sees Joon Hyuk there, and she looks down as she passes by him. Joon Hyuk goes in to talk to Tae Sung to see if he’ll really indict her. Ya think?! Tae Sung tells him he has no right to tell him what judgment to pass. Instead of wasting time threatening him, Joon Hyuk ought to find witnesses and evidence that would exonerate her. Joon Hyuk accedes – Tae Sung should know the case best, and how to resolve it. After all, the other prosecutors in Busan are in Tam Hee’s pocket, all except for Tae Sung.

He then goes to visit Sora, and tells her that the defense attorney he’ll send in will help her in the best way possible. She in turn requests Joon Hyuk to take care of her father.

Later that evening, Tae Sung receives a call from his father, who’s come down to Busan after hearing the entire situation from Joon Hyuk. Mr. Lee wants him to indict Sora – “Lock her up with your own hands. That way you can continue your marriage with Se Na.” Can I just bust Daddy Lee’s chops? Tae Sung doesn’t want to be married to Se Na! Daddy Lee has got serious short-term memory issues.

Tae Sung refuses to betray his conscience, which Mr. Lee interprets as Tae Sung choosing to betray the father that raised him. He’s not pleased to find out that Tae Sung gave Se Na divorce papers after he had worked so hard to get her father in his favor. He had hoped his son would also take over his law firm, a firm that he worked so hard to build. Tae Sung feels guilty as well, but he’s not going to throw Sora and the uncles into the fire – even if Mr. Lee thinks they’re “gangster scumbags who will never change.”

Tae Sung asks his father a crucial question – if he were just a normal “Nam Hae,” would Mr. Lee still have accepted him as his son? Mr. Lee: “You were able to become my son because you were better than others. A son who’s not a prosecutor is a son I don’t need.” That’s a striking blow to the heart. The only reason why Tae Sung worked so hard was because he loved his father, but clearly that does not apply both ways.

The trial begins, and Tae Sung begins his interrogation of Min Shik, who testifies that he acted against Tam Hee out of his own accord. Tae Sung then asks if Sora is really at the head of all the criminal activities they’ve been charged with. Min Shik says that they were only acting in the name of the White Beach Gang (Go family gangsters’ official name), but that gang is really nonexistent, and the uncles just fish like gangsters. Tae Sung then asks who the real leader of White Beach gang is, and Min Shik gestures to Joong Shik, who’s asking if anyone else wants to play ddak-ji with him.

Tae Sung points it out for the court’s official record that Joong Shik is clearly mentally ill, and has the mind of a six-year old. He’s mentally incompetent, and no form of the White Beach gang existed under Sora’s name. In addition, they have not been associated with any criminal activities. Therefore, Go Sora and the uncles will not be charged for any of the criminal activities.

Well Daddy Lee sure isn’t happy, and Tam Hee throws a fit in the courtroom. So Tam Hee goes and reveals to the court that Tae Sung used to be Sora’s husband, so he’s totally biased. Wow what a pain…

The judges then ask if Tae Sung became the prosecutor of this case just so he could free them of the charges. He replies that he only took on this case and brought it to court because if he didn’t, it would have gone to another prosecutor that would most definitely indict them of something they never did.

But now the case has to move on to another charge – the one where Sora was charged with forging President Son’s signature. With that, Tae Sung removes his prosecutorial robes and says that as of this moment, he resigns as prosecutor. Because… he’s taking the blame for being the one who forged the signature.

He requests that they put him on trial for the crime, and for the trial to begin now.

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 14Recap by Dramabeans

Tae Sung is hauled off to jail for the charge of forging President Son’s signature on the petition. Of course, Tae Sung denies it, but he won’t be able to go home right away. Sora goes to beg the president’s son to drop the charges, but he’s a spiteful one – he tells her to be grateful she’s not in jail too! Even though Sora goes the morality route (“how could we do that to a person who’s sick?”), the son thinks she’s a scam artist through and through.

The Haeundae Hotel board has a meeting with Mr. Lee regarding the merger. Mr. Lee’s secretary and Joon Hyuk both receive a call in the middle of it. Joon Hyuk’s call is from Sora, who wants to speak to Mr. Lee regarding Tae Sung’s arrest. She wants to tell the father herself the details, but that’s enough for Joon Hyuk to hear. He tells her to come to the hotel first, as they’re in a meeting. As for the secretary, he informs Mr. Lee that his son finally got arrested – which is going according to his plan.

Mr. Lee resumes the meeting, even though Joon Hyuk tells him about Tae Sung’s arrest. Tam Hee adds her obligatory two cents that it’s such a shame Tae Sung got involved with Sora and forged the signature, only to get arrested. Joon Hyuk smiles – of course Tam Hee knew about the arrest, since she filed the lawsuit. Mr. Lee glares at her for being so obvious, but comments that if Tae Sung did something wrong, he ought to be punished then. That gets Joon Hyuk thinking that something’s suspicious.

Sora waits outside of the conference room in the hotel until it ends. As people leave, she rushes inside to catch Mr. Lee. He initially ignores her until she says that she has something important to say about his son. She asserts that it was not a forged signature, but Mr. Lee points out there is no other witness but her. So how could anyone verify it? He’s going to make sure his son ends up in jail with the full sentence of five years without bail. Heartless.

Mr. Lee lays the guilt on thick too, telling her that after Tae Sung is released, he won’t be able to practice law anymore. And to think, Tae Sung so loved being a prosecutor! Mr. Lee knows that his son didn’t do anything wrong either, so Sora then realizes that Tae Sung’s arrest is a way for Mr. Lee to get Sora to do him a favor.

He gives Sora some news clippings about her father. Joong Shik is still responsible for his crimes from years ago as a gangster even though he’s no longer mentally sound. He also shows her pictures of the Yang family gangsters coming to treat Joong Shik like a king. Though Sora says that they’re acting like this because of the recent merger, no one would believe it. What makes Mr. Lee even more angry is that a nobody like her married Tae Sung and made him a gangster’s son-in-law. She’s the scum of the earth and has now soiled Tae Sung’s reputation. That’s low, Daddy Lee.

Mr. Lee tells her to leave his son. And then, he’ll let everything go.

Sora leaves the meeting, barely aware of where she’s going. Joon Hyuk catches her before she walks into a bellhop with luggage and takes her to the restaurant for a meal. He doesn’t seem to have known anything about Mr. Lee’s plans beforehand, but is sure that whatever he did, it’s to get Sora and Tae Sung to break up. But Sora isn’t going to give up – she promised she wouldn’t give up on Tae Sung.

If that’s the case, Joon Hyuk advises her to speak with Tam Hee. After all, Tam Hee filed the lawsuit, so she can take it back.

Meanwhile, Tam Hee’s gone to visit Tae Sung in jail. She still can’t get over the fact that she is now stepmother (technically) to Tae Sung, and that he’s married to the enemy’s daughter. But aside from that, she tells him that his father is very scary indeed. If Tae Sung does not go back to Seoul, he might do something to Sora and attack her weakness. Tae Sung says he won’t fall for a trick like that, but Tam Hee assures him he will. If he does his father’s bidding, Sora will be left alone, and Tam Hee will retract the lawsuit and won’t tear down Uncle’s Fishery. Everyone wins.

Tae Sung does not reply. He merely stands up and says the visit is over.

Out in the rain, Sora awaits Tam Hee to come home. She begs Tam Hee to let Tae Sung go free, but Tam Hee isn’t going to take back the lawsuit without getting anything out of it first. Sora kneels in the rain, begging, and once again throws away her pride. But there’s nothing Tam Hee can or will do – besides, didn’t Sora already get Mr. Lee’s message/threat?

Mr. Lee is informed that Sora has not seen Tae Sung in jail, which means she hasn’t broken up with him yet. Which means, she’s going to disobey him. Which then means, Mr. Lee is going to have to start the next phase of his plan.

Joong Shik is dropped off by the school bus from kindergarten, singing “Oppa Gangnam Style” the whole way until police stop him. (No, not because he – and the drama – can’t let go of Psy…) Rather, they arrest him for his past crimes of engaging in gangster activity. I find it cruel that they have to put handcuffs on a mentally ill old man… Can’t they just guide him gently to the car? Of course, Joong Shik starts crying out loud and gets the uncles’ attention.

He’s dragged into the police station, where Tae Sung is making a call to a friend to represent him. Tae Sung witnesses Sora pleading with the officers to let her dad go, and the uncles struggling against the other police. Sora breaks down in tears, but there’s not much Tae Sung can do, especially when he’s in jail too. He can only comfort Joong Shik in the cell, helping the father go to sleep that night. He knows how important the family is to her, and remembers Tam Hee’s words about his father attacking Sora’s weakness – her family.

Time for him to make a call.

Sora is torn between her promise to never leave Tae Sung’s side, and Mr. Lee’s threats. She makes one call as well – to Mr. Lee. He is on his way to jail, as Tae Sung has requested to see him, and reminds her that breaking up with Tae Sung is the only solution. With no choice, she heads to the jail.

Tae Sung confronts his father through the glass. There is no way that Joong Shik can be properly tried, but he understands what Mr. Lee is trying to tell him through this arrest. “Did you forget me telling you that I wanted to be happy?” Tae Sung asks. Mr. Lee thinks Seoul is the answer for all misery, and says that there is no way he can imagine a life without his pride and joy Tae Sung. Tae Sung just disappointed him by picking a former gangster’s daughter as a wife, when he could have any woman he wants.

Ugh – elitist talk sickens me.

It’s evident that Mr. Lee is unyielding and selfish, so Tae Sung asks what he must do so that the Go family will be left in peace. Mr. Lee gives him a statement to sign: He lost his memory and therefore was forced into marriage, and was used by the Go family to do a bunch of things. Because he was not right in his mind, he should not be indicted for forgery. That way he can retain his reputation as a prosecutor.

“I told you this,” Tae Sung says bitterly. “Even if I did lose my memory, I don’t want to lose myself.” But Dad’s all about the material things in life – if he doesn’t sign, Tae Sung will never be a prosecutor again (who cares?) and Sora’s life will be hell (oh, that’s bad).

Tae Sung: Why must you go this far?!

Mr. Lee: Because I love you, you brat!

Kaedejun: Nooo! You don’t love him! You don’t understand him!

Without a choice in front of his crazy father, Tae Sung signs – under the condition that Mr. Lee never touch Sora and her family again. At that moment, Sora bursts into the visitation room. She gets on her knees (again) and asks for the father’s forgiveness. Tae Sung yells at her to get up.

Sora: I’ll break up with him. I mean… we’ve already broken up.

Oh, that’s a blow, considering the sacrifice Tae Sung just made to save her and her family. Sora cites Yang Man Ho as the reason for the break up. It’s perfect for Mr. Lee, who just got his son to sign a testimony that her family threatened Tae Sung to go along with their plans. “It would have been better if you both weren’t so stubborn about this to begin with,” says Evil Mr. Lee. Can I smack him? Please?

But the good thing is, Joong Shik gets to go home, and Uncle Hello Kitty drives them home. As soon as they’re dropped off, Sora takes the truck to go back to the hotel apartment and get her things. Uncle Hello Kitty feels they got an unfortunate fate in catching Tae Sung in their net, but it’s time to forget all about him.

As Sora packs her bag, she hears Tae Sung come into the apartment. Without ever looking at him, she thanks him for all his efforts in getting the hotel and for saving her life. In turn, he apologizes for all the suffering put upon Sora and her father. It’s sad their relationship has been reduced to a simple thank you and apology. Tae Sung tells her to never do her geisha night job again, to report bodies in the net immediately to the police, to take care of her family, and to be brave if ever threatened. He also reminds her not to drink alcohol, because when she’s drunk she talks to inanimate objects, and he doesn’t want her crying about her mother when he’s not around. He also adds that her hands are the most beautiful in the world.

Despite their short time together, it’s clear he knows a lot about her.

Sora leaves him with something he once told her: that anything can happen in life. That includes break ups. Tae Sung grabs her wrist before she leaves, and apologizes one more time for leaving her. Of all people, Se Na witnesses him holding on to her as she walks into the house. Sora brushes his hand aside and leaves first so that Se Na can direct all her anger towards Tae Sung. But he completely ignores her without a word.

Tae Sung looks at the bridge necklace that he never got to give to Sora, and he tells Se Na to just wait outside so that he can pack. She waits outside the door, and can see Tae Sung’s shoulders shake from silent tears.

Sora can barely hold her tears back as soon as she exits the hotel, and encounters Joon Hyuk outside. She’s so heartbroken that she asks Joon Hyuk to please take her away from the hotel now. She feels she’d die if she were to see Tae Sung again. He takes her out, and tells her to cry as much as she wants.

Tae Sung returns to his position in the prosecutor’s office, where his boss is thrilled to see him again. Tae Sung is back with his biting words, as the cops were pretty incompetent to have thought he had died in the horrific car crash. His boss says that they later discovered it was Oh Jung Chul and his girlfriend’s body through a tooth (though when that happened in the whole timeline, I have no idea).

Tae Sung adds that when he really dies next time, his boss can go empty handed since he gave his funerary gift already. He goes off to work on his own cases, and finds one of his former subordinates listening right outside the door. It was the same one whose upset stomach had ruined an entire sting operation, and now he’s back on Tae Sung’s team.

Upset Stomach brings a huge cart load of case files to start with, but Tae Sung wants more. He wants as many cases as possible to help “relieve the hearts of citizens.” That’s code for “I never want to go back home.” Upset Stomach realizes that there’s going to be no chance in hell that he’ll be able to go home early to see his wife anymore, and tells his wife to dispel dreams of a second child. HA.

Tae Sung plows through case after case, meeting the people involved in each case all day and night. The clock approaches 11pm, and Tae Sung tells Upset Stomach to go home when it’s time to go home, even if he doesn’t say anything. He understands that Upset Stomach has a wife, and doesn’t want an angry person cursing him somewhere. Upset Stomach rushes off, but Tae Sung keeps on working despite his exhaustion.

He takes a moment to look at the bridge necklace, and then sees Se Na entering the office. She’s brought him a change of clothing, but he dismisses it; he’s already gotten his assistant to pick up some clothing for him. “But since you brought it, I guess I have to accept it, otherwise your father and my father will step in again.” Ouch… So Se Na replies, “Then I shouldn’t be leaving here alone, since we’re married.”

Point taken, and Tae Sung drives her back home. But he leaves her right at the front door because he’s heading back to work. Se Na’s furious – what has she done to deserve his indifference? Tae Sung admits that she hasn’t done anything wrong, and that it’s all his fault. Simply put, if he goes into the house with her, he’ll suffocate to death – that’s how much his heart is with Sora.

Back in Busan, Sora and her family are playing another baseball game… against the Yang family gangsters. HAHA. Chauffeur is now the pitcher responsible for striking her out while she’s up at bat. But she catches a glimpse of the high bars and remembers gymnast Tae Sung shocking everyone with his Olympic-skills. Not paying attention, she doesn’t see the chauffeur throwing the ball, and it hits her right on the side of her head.

Chauffeur bites his fingers – what’d he do!?

Sora is okay, but Min Shik says that they’ll take care of the issue. Before Uncle Hello Kitty can yell at them, the Yang family turns against Chauffeur and beats him to the ground. HAHA! And Sora decides to run the bases too.

Back at home, Sora takes out a uniform from her drawer – it’s a specially made one for Tae Sung, but with the name ‘Nam Hae’ stitched on the back. He had wanted one back in the day… Dong Baek catches her crying over it again and threatens to ship her off to Tae Sung with the shirt. But he thinks better of it – what if he sends it, and they send her back? That’s a painful rejection. Dong Baek cheers her up by saying that any woman would be cursed if they have to deal with Tae Sung as a husband because he’s so difficult.

But then they get a surprise guest in the form of Joon Hyuk. The Go family and the Yang gangsters all gather in the living room to hear Joon Hyuk out. This time, he has another business proposal for Sora. He wants her to achieve her dreams – through Prestige Hotels, of course – and hopes that she won’t give up on the hotel. He requests more of her mackerels, as a Japanese and a Korean restaurant have begun a war for customers over their respective mackerel dishes. Min Shik encourages her to take the order, since she can get more money now from them.

With her mackerels in demand, the restaurants will become well-known, and then Haeundae Hotel’s reputation will be bolstered. That would give the Yang gangsters’ more clout on top of their shares, and thus make acquisition of the hotel more difficult. Joon Hyuk smiles over having given her too much information, and asks her to think about what she wants to do. Either way – work will help mend a broken heart. I, on the other hand, stand confused once again over Joon Hyuk’s motivations.

Before he leaves, Joon Hyuk tells everyone that if they’re not back at work in two hours, he will process their dismissal based on failure to show up. Min Shik tells her that they’ll all go back to the hotel and find some way to fight the acquisition from the inside. Even Dong Baek agrees to the order request – they need to make deliveries and earn money to survive.

In Seoul, Mr. Lee lunches with Tae Sung to find out what he plans to do with his shares of Haeundae Hotel. Mr. Lee wants his son to sell the shares to Prestige Hotels before the acquisition, but Tae Sung wants to take care of it himself without his father’s input. Mr. Lee guesses that Tae Sung wants to give the shares to Sora, which would put him on the opposite side of him and Joon Hyuk. Tae Sung doesn’t want the riches that come with the shares when he sells it, so he’d rather give it to people who need that money, and whose dream is to manage Haeundae Hotel.

Besides, even without Tae Sung’s shares, Mr. Lee is bound to win the acquisition, no? He leaves and bumps into Se Na, who’s late for the lunch. She’s spiteful when she learns that he’s going back to work: “The harder you work, the more you’re going to feel sorry for me, and then you won’t be able to abandon me.”Tae Sung: “I used to feel that way, but now your obsession just scares me.” He no longer fears her or the guilt he may have for her, since he only agreed to this life to protect those he reallycares about.

Dong Baek and Uncle Hello Kitty make the delivery of mackerels, but take the stairs instead of the freight elevator because Uncle Hello Kitty is hoping for a glimpse of Joo Hee. Like Dong Baek cares – he calls up an elevator instead. Uncle Hello Kitty doesn’t pay attention to where he’s going though, and ends up walking right into the elevator doors, getting his face smushed between the two doors!

When they go up to the president’s office to visit Joo Hee, Uncle Hello Kitty is too embarrassed to show his face. Claiming that he was just trying to protect the cases of fish, he reveals two parallel red lines down his face!

Tam Hee storms in, angry that Joon Hyuk isn’t around to see her when she specifically told Joo Hee to make an appointment for their meeting. Her harsh words offend Uncle Hello Kitty, and he tells her off, calling her Yook Bok Ja. Calling her by the real name always pisses Tam Hee off, and she fires back that Yong Do was named after a bridge because he was found there. Aww – so Yong Do’s an orphan? Tam Hee says her new name is special, and much better than a name where Yong Do was just picked up off the street.

While Yong Do is getting hassled, Dong Baek goes over to Joo Hee and gives her a coral starfish that he picked up from the fishing net. Joo Hee is touched, and really likes it, but Yong Do is no happy kitty when he sees Dong Baek sweet-talking his sister-in-law. Sister-in-law?! It’s cute that Yong Do regards Joo Hee as his wife.

Joon Hyuk finally arrives for his meeting with Tam Hee. She’s only here to ask him about positions in the hotel, considering that she advocated for the merger in Prestige Hotel’s favor and wants some payment for it. Since the position of president is still available, or a bunch of empty director positions, perhaps she can take one? Joon Hyuk suggests she sell her shares off instead, since she doesn’t have enough to make an impact. Oh so is that what Joon Hyuk thinks – that Tam Hee is such a tiny bug that you can just flick her away? (I think it too.) Tam Hee says she won’t go down easy, and kicks a chair on her way out because she’s so badass.

In Seoul, Upset Stomach is toiling away to the late hours, which prompts Tae Sung to remind him that he can leave on time. Upset Stomach: “I hope you can lose your memory once a year and then come back. I’m so happy these days!” Haha – what a dysfunctional working relationship. He rushes off, and that’s when Tae Sung’s boss comes in. He’s getting yelled at for working Tae Sung too hard, so he offers to go out for a drink, and then Tae Sung can go home and do his husband duties to Se Na. The boss makes clear that Se Na’s father put him up to this, which makes Tae Sung so annoyed that he’d rather be sent off somewhere so he won’t be a bother to his boss.

And that’s why the boss has assigned him to Busan! Apparently the city’s a mess because the gangsters are all rising up again, so Tae Sung can go – after they have a few drinks of course!

Drinking leads to drunk karaoke from the boss, and finally Se Na arrives to pick them up. Tae Sung figures out that Se Na had hoped he’d be too drunk to go back to work, and would finally come home. Tae Sung: “Home? Where is my home?” He should go home, right?

He calls a cab before Se Na can catch him – and gives the address to his house: “Uncle’s Fishery in Cheongsampo, Haeundae.”

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 11

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 11 Recap by Dramabeans

Tae Sung sees Joon Hyuk and Sora, and he clearly sees Sora struggling. But what does he do instead? He just gives them both a long, hard look, and goes right back up the stairs.

Sora runs up the stairs after him, hoping to explain that it’s all a misunderstanding. But Tae Sung won’t have any of it. He feels like Joon Hyuk only acted that way because she led him on. Tae Sung knows that Sora prefers Joon Hyuk to him (lies!) and he doesn’t like it when Sora and Joon Hyuk discuss the hotel behind his back. It’s as if Sora doesn’t trust him to get the hotel back for her, and is planning with Joon Hyuk a back-up plan should Tae Sung fail.

The two of them go to their own sides of the yacht, angry with each other for all the misunderstandings. At that moment, the captain of the boat spots a small boat cross in front of him out of nowhere. He turns the wheel sharply, making the whole yacht veer to the side suddenly. The moment of instability throws Sora overboard!

Tae Sung hears her cry and rushes over to her side of the railing. Unable to see her in the dark waters, he throws over a life saver, removes his blazer, and jumps into the cold waters after her. The waves are strong, and Tae Sung tries to stay afloat to find her. But Sora is being pulled underwater by the currents, and she can barely surface long enough to scream for help.

Having been gone for a while, Joon Hyuk ends up worrying over where she’s gone. He tries calling her, but her phone is in her purse, which is being held at coat check. Se Na helps out with the search, and that’s when she sees a jacket floating in the water. Could it be that they’re overboard?!

Joon Hyuk calls the coast guard for a search and rescue, and Sora’s family is notified. However, because it’s so late the coast guard officer decided to bring back the search boats and the helicopters. They can’t see anything in the darkness, but they know there’s a high chance they’re alive because the life saver is missing. Tam Hee overhears this and casually comments that no trained coast guard could ever beat the rocky waves, so what more Sora and Tae Sung?

Lady – sometimes you really just need to shut your trap. I’m glad you have the grace to be scared when the uncles yell at you.

Tae Sung must be a champion swimmer because he manages to find Sora and swim to shore. They end up on a deserted island (woohoo!) but Sora is unconscious. Tae Sung desperately begs her to wake up, crying that she can’t leave him just yet. He even promises he won’t call her “Rock-brain” anymore and apologizes for his harsh assumptions back on the yacht. When she still doesn’t open her eyes, Tae Sung yells, “Rock-brain! Open your eyes!”

What a way to keep your promise dude.

She finally opens her eyes… only to ask, “Who are you?” Are you kidding me? She has amnesia now?! She even says, “This is the first time I’ve felt this way.” BWAHAHA. Shocked, Tae Sung quickly comforts her. He knows exactly what it feels like to wake up and not know anything about oneself. It’s nothing! They can get through it together, since they know each other! Sora: “Okay, Nam Hae.”

HA! She was actually pulling a prank on him! Tae Sung is so miffed that he refuses to walk anywhere with her holding hands, and just wants to go anywhere she’s not at! Haha – so cute. They climb through the grassy areas, avoiding the beach and the rocks. Tae Sung jumps at every single thing that pokes him – from tree branches to an abandoned (random) flashlight. What a sissy!

He does hurt his feet though, so Sora lets him lean on her. They need to move quickly anyways to get out of the strong winds and find shelter. Tae Sung happily takes her up on the offer, since it means he gets to lean closely on her body, but then lets go a minute later because she’s too short for him to properly lean on.

They find a small area enclosed by rocks and decide to make camp there. Sora wonders if Joon Hyuk and Se Na are looking for them, but the mention of Joon Hyuk puts Tae Sung in a sour mood again. She just had to mention him again, didn’t she? Sora: “That’s why I added Se Na’s name!” It’s freezing there though, and Tae Sung removes his shirt… only to put it on the rocks instead of around her shoulder! He just wanted to sit on something less lumpy! Sora pouts and sits down on the rocks, and that’s when Tae Sung puts the shirt around her shoulders. Oh you two – stop playing so coy with each other.

They hope to be rescued by morning, but if not, Tae Sung still remembers some of those castaway movies he’s seen in the past, and will take survival tips from there. In fact, if they have shelter and food, they can probably just live here! He asks if she wants to live with him on this deserted island, and just forget about their families and the hotel. Sora can’t agree so easily; her uncles are everything to her and they’re not just strangers who are loyal to her and her father. They’re permanent – unlike Tae Sung, who wil leave her soon whether or not he’s the son of Man Ho or not.

That puts Tae Sung in a somber mood – no matter who he is, he’ll have to leave her? He goes out towards the beach to look at the night sky, and sees a couple of shooting stars. Sora reminds him to make a wish, and hopes that it means his memory will come back soon. Tae Sung: “I don’t think so. It’s been a while since I wished for my memory back.”

Sora made a wish too, but Tae Sung is afraid to ask what she wished for. She warns him not to get mad at her first, and tells him her wish… by kissing him full on the mouth. Like, passionate kissing. Like – YAY OUR COUPLE HAS ACCEPTED EACH OTHER!

The next morning, Sora finds that Tae Sung is out on the beach, catching random fish and shellfish for breakfast. Sora notes that he can’t even eat most of it, as he is allergic, and that they have no fire to grill it over. Oh bicker away you two… while your family is hassling the coast guard to search for them quickly. Joong Shik is fretting too – because he wants to go to his kindergarten class and beat all his classmates at the board games! He tries to run off, but Se Na catches him in time so that Dong Baek can go and properly “chase” Joong Shik and keep him occupied.

Se Na had joined the family at the coast guard office to bring them food, knowing that they must be worried sick but hungry. Soon Shin shuts her down immediately – they’re so worried they can’t be bothered with food, so she ought to go away now! Thankfully Joon Hyuk notices that it hurts Se Na’s feelings, and he goes to eat her specially prepared meals instead. Hum… another coupling in the works?

Soon Shin doesn’t want to stay still and wait around, so he decides to take out their own fishing boat and search for Sora and Tae Sung. Joon Hyuk offers to take Joong Shik to kindergarten so that he can get out of everyone’s hair. Uncle Hello Kitty is to stay at the coast guard office to wait for any updates, while he and Dong Baek go out on the sea. He even apologizes to Se Na for his rudeness, making the world all right again.

Meanwhile, Tam Hee is having the time of her life. With the likelihood that Tae Sung is dead, she’s perfectly well rested and glowing when she goes to her salon. the stylist fawns all over Tam Hee’s perfect skin – enough to make Tam Hee’s chauffeur nearly gag. I love that this chauffeur has more personality now, and we can see more clearly that he thinks his mistress is so shallow and ridiculous. Tam Hee is also excited because her son is coming back from Antarctica today. Wow – two months have already passed?

Back on the beach, Sora draws out a huge SOS on the sand, hoping that it will catch their rescuers’ attention. She spots a boat in the distance and starts yelling at it, calling for it to come. Yeah – like they’re going to hear her. The whole time, Tae Sung is just watching her, not helping her at all. He has less interest in being saved at the moment, as he wants to spend the rest of his life with just Sora on the deserted – but livable – island. He’s kind of annoyed that Sora is working so hard to get off the island because to him it feels like she doesn’t want to be alone with him for a second longer.

Joon Hyuk and Joong Shik arrive home, and he hurries the dad to pick up his things for kindergarten. Joong Shik boasts that he’s going to beat all of his friends in a game of ddak-ji, a children’s board game that involves slapping and flipping over others’ square paper pogs. He shows off his huge ddak-ji, which are made out of scrap paper and much bigger than the usual size. Joon Hyuk picks one up and unfolds it – it’s an oath written by Yang Man Ho, swearing allegiance to Joong Shik. (Looks like part of it is written in blood!) He accidentally steps on another ddak-ji, and Joong Shik gets all huffy. Joon Hyuk just stepped on a flyer with Tae Pyong Yang’s face!

Joong Shik points out that Tae Pyong Yang is Ga Joon’s real father, and that Joon Hyuk shouldn’t tell anyone, lest Yang Man Ho finds out! Joon Hyuk just keeps getting hit with revelations. He now understands why Tam Hee wasn’t worried about the DNA test – with Man Ho dead, Tae Sung and Ga Joon’s DNA would never match.

Tam Hee picks up Ga Joon from the airport, sickeningly fussing over her grown son. He says that he scouted the Antarctic and found it a perfect place – no one but penguins around. Hear that? It’s crickets chirping. Joon Hyuk greets them at the hotel lobby, and considerately tells Ga Joon that they can discuss the Antarctic expansion after he’s rested.

They have a drink at the cafe together, and when Ga Joon leaves for the restroom, Tam Hee sidles up to Joon Hyuk – he’s being nice to them now since Tae Sung is gone, isn’t he? And doesn’t he think that she’s still a great catch? (Excuse me while I go retch in the toilet.) Tam Hee leaves the cafe and Joon Hyuk quickly requests for a plastic bag. He takes Ga Joon’s cup and wraps it up for DNA testing purposes.

Next, he goes up to Tae Sung’s room. After paying off the maid for her silence, he grabs Tae Sung’s toothbrush and razor. “Detective” Joon Hyuk then finds his lawyer friend and asks him to get a DNA test done as quickly and as discreetly as possible.

Back on the deserted island, Sora has miraculously conjured up a small raft to help with their escape. How she got all those materials… Tae Sung is still grouchy over how she seems to want to get off the island so badly, but she points out that she’s really hungry. He grudgingly helps her push the raft out to sea, and she climbs on successfully – only for their raft to capsize. HA. Tae Sung: “Now you made me hungrier!!”

But suddenly – a savior! A helicopter flies over them – they’re found! Everyone but Tam Hee is thrilled at the news. We then get a view at the whole beach; while Sora was busy making an SOS sign on the sand, Tae Sung was writing out a declaration of their coupledom – “Nam Hae and Sora” – because he’s so cheesy like that. They even get a little cute, blushing and holding hands in the ambulance.

Tae Sung gets checked out at the hospital and the doctor only gives him some medication that will help with recovering his memories. He heads to the bathroom – and tosses out all the medicine. Looks like he enjoys being Nam Hae! Joon Hyuk witnesses him tossing it all out in the bathroom, and then thanks him for bringing Sora back safely. Tae Sung just mocks him – isn’t it tough to be involved in a one-sided love affair?

Joon Hyuk ignores this, and informs him instead that he’ll be needing Tae Sung’s DNA because Ga Joon came back. Tae Sung refuses to hand it over, as he’s not ready to give it up yet and wants to get the hotel back for Sora first. Joon Hyuk tells him to stop caring for Sora, as he feels that Tae Sung is just using her. But that’s just not true.

Sora enjoys her bubble bath in the marble tub, and Tae Sung sneakily tries to find his way in by offering her a glass of wine, or putting rose petals in her bath, or offering to bathe with her. It’s a totally useless but cute scene between the two that shows only their growing amusement and love for each other. Also shows how immature Tae Sung really is.

The uncles drink with Tae Sung in the living room and, though tipsy, they thank Tae Sung for saving Sora and hope he will continue to take good care of her. Suddenly all the uncles have nothing but love and praise for Tae Sung – but they quickly fall asleep on his floor. Well – guess they’re staying with him tonight! Uncle Hello Kitty does manage to stumble into Sora’s room to sleep, so that puts Sora in Tae Sung’s bedroom. She refuses to share it with him, leaving the frustrated man out in the living room to cuddle with Dong Baek.

Se Na and Joon Hyuk have dinner together, with Se Na playing the ever-good girl because she’s so relieved “Nam Hae” and Sora are safe and sound. She does recognize that Joon Hyuk is in love with her, as she went through it before. Joon Hyuk’s lawyer friend then appears at the same restaurant and tells him that he’s got the results – very interesting ones at that. Joon Hyuk pulls a “classic Tae Sung” – opting to ditch Se Na so that he can get the results from his friend at that very moment.

Tam Hee returns to the hotel with Ga Joon to find the uncles all back and working, happy to have found their Sora. Dong Baek spots Joo Hee having a difficult time taking out all the shopping bags from the trunk of the car, and he falls for her at first sight too. He helps her with the bags, and escorts her to wherever she is going.

They encounter Uncle Hello Kitty cleaning the floors inside, and while Tam Hee looks down on him, Ga Joon greets him respectfully and thanks him for his hard work. Clearly someone raised Ga Joon well, and it couldn’t have been Tam Hee! Uncle Hello Kitty then sees Joo Hee and he excitedly mops the floor clean before her so that she can walk on clean floors. Joo Hee smiles charmingly… and then slides on the slippery floor. Good thing Dong Baek is there to catch her!

Aaaaaaand it looks like she just may fall for Dong Baek!

Sora and Tae Sung meet with Mr. Bae and President Jo and his wife, and all of them pledge loyalty to Sora and Tae Sung’s plans for Haeundae Hotel. However, since they do not have the majority of the shares, they tell the couple to try and get Chairman Son Young Dae on their side. Unfortunately, the chairman is currently fighting with his children over his money, and has collapsed in the hospital.

The couple goes to the hotel to visit, and they find Joon Hyuk exiting Son’s room. Joon Hyuk had just spoken to Son Young Dae’s son to ensure that he’ll get Son’s votes. Joon Hyuk requests to speak to Sora alone again, which irks Tae Sung to no end. He wants Sora to stop going around and meeting with shareholders, as she’s not going to get the result she wants. This comes just days after he had offered the list of shareholders to her. So because she rejected your advances, you’re going to work against her, huh?

But Sora won’t have any of it. She can’t stop now, no matter what the outcome is.

She returns to Tae Sung with a smile, and the two enter the room to find Son’s son and daughter-in-law shirking responsibility on cleaning up after the chairman. Because the son keeps feeding his father unhealthy food, he keeps crapping on himself – so much so that the caretaker they hired quits right then and there. The son and daughter-in-law leave the room fighting with each other, so Sora takes action. She cleans up the chairman’s mess, treating him with respect because she knows that the chairman must be embarrassed. She’s also a pro at this because back in the day, her father was in the same condition as the chairman.

Once he’s been cleaned up, Sora introduces herself and Tae Sung, and begins her speech about wanting to get Haeundae Hotel back. She realizes that this may all be inappropriate to say to a hospital patient, so she changes tack and decides to cheer him up instead by giving him hope. Since her father used to be like this but ended up getting better, so to can Son Young Dae. Yep – that’s sure to make the chairman happy!

Tae Sung is impressed with Sora’s iron stomach – how could she withstand the stench?! – but she says that seeing her father used to be like that made it easier for her to handle the chairman. In addition, it made her anger towards Man Ho even stronger. Though she was conflicted on how to react when he fell ill, she certainly became more determined to get her hotel back and take revenge on Man Ho.

That’s a scary thought – especially if Tae Sung is proven to be Man Ho’s son. Until then, she has no wrath towards him and they happily hold hands as Tae Sung drives them back to the hotel.

After the hospital visit, Joon Hyuk finds Se Na sketching in the department store. He wants to make up for ditching her at the restaurant the other night, and takes her out to a cafe. Se Na tells him that he reminds her a bit of “her Tae Sung,” which irritates him because he seriously hates the name. Se Na says that her Tae Sung was a sad person who also easily felt guilt keenly. She would use that to her advantage when she wanted Tae Sung to be around her, making herself be good to him so that he’d feel so bad about neglecting her that he’d come back to her.

She takes out her wallet to show Joon Hyuk a picture of him. It’s their wedding photo, and Joon Hyuk’s eyes widen when he sees the photo.
