Hotel King Episode 18 Review: Wang Ji Hye is Mad at Lee Da Hae for Breaking Lee Dong Wook’s Heart

In Hotel King, episode 18, Song Chae Kyung(played by Wang Ji Hye) got mad at Ah Mo Ne(played by Lee Da Hae) for breaking Cha Jae Wan(played by Lee Dong Wook)’s heart.

Previously, Mo Ne fired and broke up with Jae Wan. As Chae Kyung saw Jae Wan having a hard time, she went to Mo Ne and told her he was in pain. Mo Ne coldly said, “Then he should go to the hospital, why come to me? I’m not a doctor.” Chae Kyung replied, “He’s in pain because he’s heartbroken after you broke up with him. It would rather be better if he was physically sick.”

Mo Ne said, “So I fired him, didn’t I? He no longer has anything to do with me nor Hotel Ciel.” Chae Kyung told Mo Ne that she let go of Jae Wan because he looked happy with her. Mo Ne made it clear that she was done with Jae Wan, and Chae Kyung lastly said, “Then don’t you ever dare to reach your hand out to him again.”

HanCinema's Drama Review 'The King's Face' Episode 21

King Seonjo comes face-to-face with his own demons in the kind of a guy he once trusted: Do-chi. Like the king, Do-chi is crammed with arrogance and the theory that he's invincible. Neither are ready for their downfalls, which makes this episode and their crash to rock backside the most attractive thus far.Do-chi has spent years manipulating and mendacity to people, construction up his energy base and hoping to bring about alternate in Joseon. The irony of it all is that he has changed into the guy he despises so as to do it. He has develop into as twisted as he imagined King Seonjo to be. All of his deceptions are now coming back to hang-out him and the poetic twist is that he is too corrupted through the facility he accuses the king of abusing to peer what he has become. It"s the maximum productive a section of his character"s creation, this culmination of his pathetic being.

Gah-hee, at the other hand, has come into her own whilst Do-chi jumped off the deep end. She stands robust in the face of the new, very arrogant queen and works neatly with Gwanghae"s quiet, yet strong-willed wife. I actually like that the ladies have a greater role to play now as they sorely lacked any veritable activity. Even though Ga-hee used to be a warrior, she was still two dimensional and that warrior"s spirit didn"t appear to hold over into her lifestyles as the king"s companion. Now it in spite of everything shines via and makes me wish for personality consistency.The introduction of Queen Inmok, like the introduction of Heo Gyeon a couple of episodes ago, serves the similar reason - bringing in a brand new face and together with it new interest. Unfortunately Heo Gyeon"s novelty temporarily wore off secure for the infrequent spats he has with Eunuch Im. Queen Inmok may hang some intrigue, but the writers eliminate her lack of confidence and most effective display the confidence that mask it, growing yet some other stale character.

Also, the direction from time to time tries to be inventive in the shape of fast camera cuts which are more nauseating than effective. It"s a flailing try to seize for more cast written floor that fails.Written by: Raine from "Raine"s Dichotomy"

"The King"s Face" is directed by Cha Yeong-hoon and Yoon Seong-sik, written by Lee Hyang-hee and Yoon Soo-jeong, and contours Seo In-guk, Jo Yoon-hee, Lee Seong-jae, and Sin Seong-rok.

How does "Mask King" stay spoiler-free?

No matter how hard someone tries to keep a secret, it"s incredibly hard for a show to keep every contestant under wraps. However, "Mask King" has so far managed to stay spoiler-clean, where none of the audience members even opened their mouths about it. Well, apparently it"s because of the hefty penalty fee that"s involved!

An audience member told Ilgan Sports, "Before you go in, you sign an oath. When you get there, the staff give out papers that read that you won"t share thebroadcaston SNS or blogs. If youbreak the oath, you have to pay them an entire episode"s production costs."

The audience member added, "You can take your cell phones, but they give out stickers to cover your cameras to prevent you from taking pictures. Since the staff take so much caution against spoilers, the audience doesn"t really try to take pictures or anything."

It was also revealed that "Mask King" filmed for about 8 hours, starting at 4PM and lasting until midnight. Both the audience and celebrity panel are given about 10 minutes of break each.

tvN Drama “Heart to Heart” Episode 16 Review

News via
tvN Drama “Heart to Heart” Episode 16 Review

According to Cha Hong Do (Choi Kang Hee), I love “Heart to Heart” because “love is touching something” and “Heart to Heart” definitely touched me. It affected me in ways I hadn’t imagined possible with a drama full of, for the most part, charm and lightheartedness.

To be honest, even with the unexpectedly dark twist of events that served as our couple’s last hurdle to happily ever after, I still adored “Heart to Heart” to pieces. Despite knowing how the plot twist would end up the moment it happened, with Cha Hong Do’s innocence in the accidental homicide of Ko Yi Suk (Chun Jung Myung)’s brother, it still kept my attention.

Ultimately, the last question on our minds as “Heart to Heart” drew to a close is: was that really necessary? Did our OTP really need to face that hurdle? A small part of me says no, it wasn’t necessary, but… an even larger part of me says yes, it was.

While it effectively put a damper on the light, airy tone of the entire drama, the same tone I had come to love, and gave it such an over dramatic twist, it served as a final turning point for the entire Ko family and for Cha Hong Do, herself. We learned that the psychological issues for so many people stemmed from the same incident that took place two decades ago and that the only way to overcome it is to bravely face it.

Although we already knew that Ko Yi Suk and Cha Hong Do were perfectly suited for each other and that they, quite frankly, needed each other, we didn’t see that all consuming love, that deep passion and desperation for each other, until outside forces were threatening to tear them apart.

In the past, whenever Ko Yi Suk was hurt, anguished, or sad, he would bury his face in his hands as he tried to cry, but he couldn’t. He never could. There was no release for him from those burdening emotions that weighed so heavily upon him. His dejected statement of “I can’t even cry” tore at my heart every time.

But with his realization that he must part with Cha Hong Do for the wellbeing of his family, he finally broke down. Ladies and gentlemen, Ko Yi Suk cried his heart out. All those years of unleashed negative emotions finally escaped from within him at that very moment. The gateway to freedom, to healing, to tossing his mask in the trash, had finally been opened.

For Cha Hong Do, the eventual revelation that she had, essentially, been framed, gave her the boost of confidence she needed to embrace Ko Yi Suk forever. From a woman who had shied away from others, who had self esteem issues, who had slowly, but surely, been shedding her insecurities without even realizing it, this was the moment that I, as a viewer, had been waiting for since the beginning. Empowering, bold, and undoubtedly inspiring, Cha Hong Do finally stood up for herself, for Ko Yi Suk, for their love, and even managed to call Chairman Ko out on, not only his insincerity in apologizing to her, but for the pain he and the rest of the family had caused Yi Suk. Her triumphantly proud statement of “you lost your grandson to me” was the most perfect revenge with the littlest of efforts.

But, perhaps, what I enjoyed most about this particular situation is that, despite the severity of the incident, Ko Yi Suk and Cha Hong Do attempted to handle it as maturely as possible. Even through each others’ anguish, their level of communication was still open and honest; both freely speaking their mind during the realization, the coping, and even in reaching the amazing decision that the past would not determine their future.

I fully expected a break-up, an inability to cope with the cruel “fact” that they had fallen in love with each other, so it took me by wonderful surprise when that wasn’t the case. Even when they eventually decided that they had no choice but to part, they handled it well with their usual open honesty. There was no noble idiocy, no hiding of the truths, and genuine well wishes for each others’ well being as they met for the last time. It was utterly heart shattering, for sure, but so new and refreshing all the same.

In this last arch before the end is also where I finally fell in love with Ko Se Ro (Sohee). My confusion over her strong desire to act, even when she clearly had no skills, was finally cleared up with one simple, yet heartbreaking, reason. Only in this final leg of “Heart to Heart” did Ko Se Ro shed her own mask and I had the strongest urge to embrace her loneliness away.

Still, despite her lack of familial closeness as she grew up in the U.S., Se Ro’s unwavering love for her brother was just the kind of warmth I was looking for to fill the coldness that washed over me from the chaotic mess of 20 years ago. As she finally heard the whole story about Il Suk and learned about Yi Suk’s secret guilt and resentment, never once did Se Ro judge her brother for his flaws or dark thoughts. She simply embraced him warmly, stood by him silently as a strong pillar of support, and did her best to ensure her brother’s happiness – no matter what.

On the other hand, Jang Doo Soo (Lee Jae Yoon) was probably the biggest mystery for me. I could never quite fully figure him out – even in the end. Whereas Ko Yi Suk went from “horrible male lead with a serious anger and attitude problem” to “big ol’ teddy bear,” Jang Doo Soo was the cause of my immediate Second Lead Syndrome, which gave way to weariness and caution, and then, finally, ending with a quiet love for him.

Honestly speaking, I was expecting to dislike Jang Doo Soo till the end after the way he had fiercely attempted to control Cha Hong Do. A big, bright red warning sign flashed like emergency lights at me when he suddenly changed like that, but what really pushed me to the edge was when he told Cha Hong Do that he wished she had never changed. He wished she had never decided to tackle her Anthrophobia, to face the world, to overcome her fears.

A man who would wish for you to remain as you were, hidden and completely isolated from the world with a crippling fear, was not a man at all. To so selfishly think of healing your own pain by wishing for something like that because the woman you loved was happily in love with someone else and changing for the better is nothing less than spiteful.

I was shocked speechless that such words had came from the once tenderhearted and warm Jang Doo Soo, the man I had once adored so much in “Heart to Heart.” But as he continued to progress, my heart began to soften towards him again. I repeatedly dissected him before coming to the realization that he was a man who simply didn’t know how to handle the waves of emotion crashing over him from experiencing love for the very first time.

His heart had never been moved before. He had never experienced that kind of emotional pain. Wouldn’t it be obvious that Jang Doo Soo wouldn’t know how to appropriately handle it either? With that, I realized how much sense it made for him to say those words – not because he truly wished for it, not because those were his true thoughts, but because he’s just searching for a way to stop the pain.

Jang Doo Soo was, essentially, a grown man trying to handle real emotions with the experience level of a child. Knowing this, I slowly came to respect him again as he found his own way to cope with his broken heart while wishing for Cha Hong Do’s happiness from a distance.

In the end, while I think that the final twist could have been something entirely different to better fit the usually consistent tone of “Heart to Heart,” I also think the impact would not have been so strong. Due to the solemnity of the secret being revealed, Ko Yi Suk’s mother was forced to face reality, thereby healing her of her own psychological wounds, and Ko Yi Suk’s father, for the first time, bravely confessed his own wrongdoings.

All in all, “Heart to Heart” was a feel-good drama with life lessons on forgiveness and finding ones’ own happiness, spoken like a true expert from one of my favorite supporting characters, psychologist and director Uhm Ki Choon (Seo Yi Sook).

From the slow, quiet, heartwarmingly gentle love between Jang Doo Soo and Ko Se Ro to the heart wrenching, passionately healing, need-you-like-I-need-oxygen love between Ko Yi Suk and Cha Hong Do; from the difficult and damaging love between Ko Yi Suk’s parents to the careful, opposites attract relationship between Uhm Ki Choon and Ahn Byung Yul (Choi Moo Sung); even the incompatible, grating on each other’s nerves relation between Chairman Ko and Hwang Geum Shim (Kim Ae Kyung) and the unfaithful love between Woo Yeo Woo (Hwang Seung Eon) and her fiancé, these are just a small handful of examples of “Heart to Heart’s” successful portrayal of love in all forms, flaws and all.

It serves as a refreshing reminder that no matter how we act on the exterior and regardless of the situations we have faced, we’re all just human in the end. It’s the kind of drama that I’ll re-watch on the days where I’m battling my own inner demons and tackling my own wounds and insecurities for the strength it offers.

With the beautiful script, the wonderful directing, the perfectly suited OST, and the flawless portrayal of their individual characters from the cast, “Heart to Heart” delivers its intended message full of touching warmth and gentleness exactly as the title suggests – from their heart to my heart.

rughydrangea’s Final Thoughts:

When it became clear that the last big conflict of “Heart to Heart” would be focused on the fact that Hong Do “killed” Yi Suk’s brother, I was really worried.

That plotline just seemed far too big, too over-the-top, too soap-opera-esque for a drama whose greatest strength was its grounded, down-to-earth sensibility. I was worried that this plotline would make everything special about “Heart to Heart” disappear. I was worried that the simple triumphs of Hong Do finding the courage to move in the world would be overshadowed by hysterical family drama.

Now that “Heart to Heart” has finished, I’m still not sure if I was right to be worried. I do think that overall, “Heart to Heart” dealt with this storyline about as well as it could be dealt with. The performances were excellent, and though there was lots of screaming and crying (as one would expect when a plot centers around the death of a child), it never felt over-the-top. But… was any of this really necessary? This is a question I keep coming back to, and I just can’t decide. Was there something special this plotline gave “Heart to Heart,” something unique that would have been missing otherwise? For the most part, I think the answer is “no.” After all, what did this storyline show us? It showed us that Yi Suk can’t live without Hong Do—but we knew that already. It showed us that Yi Suk’s father is a miserable coward—but we also knew that already. On the positive side, it gave us an ending in which Yi Suk’s mother could finally break free of the past—but surely there are other ways we could have got to that point.

Ultimately, I am almost ready to write this plotline off as a mistake—a well-acted, well-directed mistake that doesn’t take away my love for this drama, but a mistake nonetheless. One scene stops me, however. The scene in question is Hong Do’s final meeting with Chairman Ko, in which she tells him that she is done apologizing, that she doesn’t want to hear his insincere apologies, and that she knows that she has won because Yi Suk is hers forever now. It’s a great moment, both for Choi Kang Hee, who plays it perfectly, and for Hong Do, whose simple, unashamed confidence is a victory on countless levels. It is so intensely satisfying to see her standing up for herself and the man she loves and refusing to feel bad about it. What a perfect illustration of how far she’s come since episode one, and what an amazing journey of healing she’s been on. If we needed the “Hong Do killed Il Suk, except she really didn’t” storyline to get to this moment, then I guess I’m okay with the storyline as a whole. This scene made it worth it.

As for the rest of “Heart to Heart”… Well, it was as wonderful as ever. The central romance between Hong Do and Yi Suk has quickly become one of my favorite drama romances, notable for how perfectly sincere and healing it was. These are two people who need each other, and they’re never afraid to say it. They are sweet, affectionate and simply wonderful.

I was also pleasantly surprised by the secondary couple, who ended up providing the perfect contrast to Hong Do and Yi Suk’s intense, all-consuming relationship. Jang Doo Soo was a character about whom I had very conflicted feelings for a lot of this drama’s run (when Hong Do says she doesn’t like you, that’s not a sign for you to pursue her more aggressively!), but he really redeemed himself with his love for Se Ro, which was remarkable in just how undramatic it was. There was no light-bulb over his head, no “Eureka!” moment in which Doo Soo suddenly realized that he was in love with Se Ro. There was only a slow process of coming to understand that he preferred his life with her in it. There’s something amazingly romantic about such a low-key love, in my opinion. It feels so real, so rooted in the surprising, unexpected rhythms of love that every person has experienced. This storyline was also wonderfully elevated by great performances by Lee Jae Yoon, who perfectly conveyed Doo Soo’s perpetual confusion, and Sohee, whose sparkling screen presence was a joy to watch.

In the end, “Heart to Heart” wasn’t a perfect drama. But what is? The simple fact is that I loved watching “Heart to Heart,” and once I finished an episode, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Yes, I do wish the final stretch of episodes had been constructed around a stronger storyline. But even if that story didn’t completely work for me, it still gave us a wonderful vision of just how much our main characters had grown and healed. And what main characters they were! Thanks to pitch-perfect performances, keenly observant directing, and smart, sensitive writing, Hong Do and Yi Suk are going to stay with me for a long time. There’s not much more you can ask of a drama.

Soompiers, what are your final thoughts on “Heart to Heart”? Are you sad to see it end? Is there anything you would have changed about it? Let us know in the comments below!

tvN Drama "Heart to Heart" Episode 16 (Final) Recap

News via
tvN Drama

Now that the terrible secret is out, Chairman Go spills the whole story to Yi-seok — his father had started the fire with his lighter, and had saved his wife but didn’t know Il-seok was in the shed until it was too late. Yi-seok asks why Young-ji got the blame, and the chairman at least admits that she seemed guilty, as she was holding matches.

Nobody knew the truth until a drunken confession from Dad later, that he was the real culprit. The chairman agrees now that he shouldn’t have let Young-ji keep taking the blame once Dad confessed. He says that if he’d known Dad was going to spend the next twenty-three years being an absent drunken wastrel, he’d have made him stay and take responsibility.

But Yi-seok doesn’t want to hear about his father, and steers the conversation back to Hong-do: Why did the chairman treat her so badly when she came back into their lives? The chairman doesn’t answer, and only says that he should feel sorry for his father and that they’ll reimburse Hong-do for their wrongdoing to her, asking Yi-seok to let it go. Looking disappointed in his grandfather, Yi-seok says he can’t, and leaves.

He goes downstairs to lay into Butler Ahn next, for not coming clean when he showed Yi-seok the picture of himself and Hong-do as children. Butler Ahn at least has the grace to look ashamed for keeping the secret, and doesn’t defend himself.

Yi-seok drives to see Hong-do, replaying in his mind all the hateful things his family said and did to Hong-do, blaming her for Il-seok’s death when they knew the truth all along. He wonders how he’ll possibly tell her what really happened. He tells her the facts of that day, as well as he remembers them, and she admits she remembers lighting the match but that everything else is fuzzy.

Yi-seok gently breaks the news that his father was the one who actually started the fire, and that his grandfather objected to her dating Yi-seok in order to keep the secret. He tries to apologize for his family, but Hong-do stops him, overwhelmed. She asks for time alone to think, and invites Yi-seok to leave.

Meanwhile Dad pleads with his wife for forgiveness, and asks if she was still conscious when he pulled her out of the storage shed. She says she was, and that she’d convinced herself that it really was Hong-do who started the fire. She cries that she’s kept his secret all this time, and asks why he told the truth now, worried that they’ll lose their remaining two children over it.

At least Mom admits to feeling shame and regret over what she did to Hong-do, but Dad is willing to take all the blame. She asks herself over and over, what she’ll do now. Maybe apologize? That would be a start.

Hong-do sits alone talking to a picture of her grandmother, and tells her that it really wasn’t her who started the fire. She feels relieved but also angry, wondering how that family could do that to her.

Yi-seok informs his grandfather that Hong-do knows everything now, including the chairman’s lies. He asks what he should tell her when she asks why he did it, but the chairman just accuses him of being drunk. Yi-seok says that his father may be a coward but at least he feels badly.

The chairman says that he would do the same thing again if given the chance — that was his son, in pain after losing a child, and he wouldn’t force him to admit fault and make him hurt even worse. He does say he felt bad sending Hong-do and her grandmother away that way, but I don’t think it matters that you feel bad if you would still do it again.

Hong-do tosses and turns that night, unable to sleep, and she finally gets up to call Yi-seok. He offers to come over but she refuses, in no mood to see him or anyone else from his family. After a moment, Yi-seok tells her that he started to like her way back when she begged him, red-faced and desperate, to fix her.

Hong-do says that she should have gone to someone else for help, but Yi-seok keeps talking about the time she wanted to ask Doo-soo if he slept well. He says he was jealous even back then, because she was putting all her effort towards someone else.

Hong-do says she misses him, but that if she sees him she’ll only get angry. He tells her to lie down and he’ll talk to her until she sleeps, so she does, and he brings up their first time sleeping together. He tells her it was the first time he was able to sleep through the night in bed with a woman. Hong-do relaxes and listens while Yi-seok talks about nothing, letting his voice lull her to sleep.

Se-ro is waiting for Doo-soo when he arrives at work in the morning, and she tells him what she found out about the fire and how her father started it. She’s ashamed of her family, worried she won’t be able to face Hong-do. She apologizes for bothering him again, saying this is why she needs to leave because she can’t help herself.

Yi-seok’s mom calls Hong-do out for coffee, and tells her that she really did believe she started the fire, apologizing sincerely. Hong-do asks why she hid it once she knew the truth, and Mom says they thought they were protecting Yi-seok. Hong-do looks her right in the eye and calls bullshit, saying that Yi-seok had a hard time because of his mother.

This is hard to hear, but Mom takes it on the chin and says that Hong-do is right. She’s sorry Yi-seok was hurt by all this, and asks Hong-do not to hate him because of his family — she doesn’t want her son to suffer anymore because of her. It makes Hong-do angry that she dares to ask her to take care of Yi-seok after what they did.

Yi-seok tells Dr. Uhm the whole sordid story, admitting that he doesn’t think he can forgive his family for what they did to Hong-do. He worries about how Hong-do will feel towards him now, but Dr. Uhm assures him that she’ll just see him, and not his family. In fact, she thinks Hong-do won’t be able to let go of her resentment unless she’s with him.

Doo-soo asks if Yang liked his new girlfriend right away, jealous that Yang was so sure of himself, but he approaches the subject very analytically. If love is a scale of one to twelve, at what number does it mean you really like her? Oh you sweet dumb doofus, no wonder it took you seven years to realize you liked Hong-do.

Mom asks Se-ro if she hates her, but Se-ro’s silence answers that question quite well. Mom feels bad, but Se-ro tells her she grew up just fine, so not to worry about it. Se-ro says that she knows Mom was pregnant with her when Il-seok died, and thanks her for surviving the fire so she could be born. She tells her mother that she and Yi-seok just want her to let go of Il-seok and be happy living her own life.

Hong-do tries to go about her life, but she eventually snaps and goes to Yi-seok’s apartment. She barges in demanding answers, saying she met his mother and asks if all mothers are like that. Since she never had one, she doesn’t know. Her voice gets louder and angry tears fall, as she cries that they all knew the truth.

Yi-seok stands and takes it with a bowed head, knowing Hong-do has every right to be furious. He stops her when she starts to head out to ask the chairman why he did it, begging her to calm down. Inconsolable, Hong-do finally wails the thing that really hurts — her grandmother lived and died never knowing that Hong-do was innocent.

She cries that it’s not fair, and Yi-seok can only do what he does best… hold her and reassure her that he’s there for her. Hong-do screams that she wants revenge, and he says that if she needs it, she should take it, apologizing that all he can do is say he’s sorry.

Yi-seok’s dad tries to sneak out in the middle of the night, but Butler Ahn stops him. Dad says everyone treats him like a guest anyway, but Butler Ahn says it’s his own fault for not even trying to be a good husband and father. He takes Dad’s suitcase back to his room, telling him that he can leave after he’s cleaned up his mess. (Three cheers for Butler Ahn!)

Back at home, Hong-do wonders to herself how Yi-seok could be so forgiving, even when he thought she really did kill his brother. In the morning she gets dressed and goes to the Go home, ready to confront Chairman Go.

Before Hong-do can say anything, the chairman admits to his wrongdoings without excuse, and vaguely apologizes. She says he sounds insincere, and tells him she’s not sorry anymore, for dressing up as her grandmother and lying to him. She also isn’t sorry for dating Yi-seok when she’s only a poor uneducated girl.

She tells him that she feels sorry for Yi-seok, being a part of this family, and that she’s going to be with Yi-seok from now on. He’s a good person who does his best to protect his entire family, and now she’s going to protect him. She bravely tells the chairman that Yi-seok belongs to her now, and sails out confidently.

That night Hong-do goes to Yi-seok’s apartment, and the poor guy is just a wreck wondering if she’s here to break up with him. She tells him that her grandmother was a fierce woman, and that she thought about what her grandmother would say about all this. She would have said it was a relief that Hong-do was innocent (after the cursing was over, ha).

Nervously, Yi-seok asks if she would have also told him to never show himself in front of her again, and Hong-do nods that yes, she would have. Or, she adds, she would have said that you can’t ignore Fate. So even if their fate is bad, they can’t break up.

Hong-do says that when they broke up, she hated talking to his back. So now she wants to say this to his face, and she plans to say it a lot: “I love you, Go Yi-seok. I love you, Go Yi-seok. I love you, Go Yi-seok.” This time Hong-do reaches to hug Yi-seok first, and kisses him first. She teases him for crying, and he grumbles that she’s just an ugly troublemaker.

In bed later, Hong-do tells Yi-seok that she met with his grandfather. She says she might have been understanding if he’d been honest and admitted that he’d blamed her because he had no other choice. Yi-seok sighs that he’ll never change, and apologizes for all the hardship she’s been through because of him. He offers to pay her back by loving her forever. Cue adorable banter and a sexy tickle fight.

Yi-seok sees Se-ro off to the airport, and she tells him to take care of everyone and not fight. At the station, Doo-soo stares at the message from Se-ro telling him when she’s leaving today, which is less than two hours away… then suddenly gets up and runs out. Run, man, run! Go get your girl!!

Se-ro waits at the airport as long as she can, staring at her own phone, and finally decides Doo-soo isn’t coming. But he’s there, running around the airport looking for her, and they just miss each other a few times. Luckily her plane’s been delayed, and he manages to find her when she stops to do some shopping.

Doo-soo starts right in fussing at Se-ro for not answering her phone, but he calms down and tells her that he doesn’t really know what he’s feeling. He thinks it might be the start of something, but he’s not sure if it’s enough to hold onto her. All he knows is that he wonders what she’s doing and thinking about her all the time, and is curious about nearly everything about her.

Se-ro kicks Doo-soo squarely in the shin: “That means you like someone!” You tell him, girl. She reminds him that he lost Hong-do because he spent too much time thinking, and instructs him to call her and think about her every day. I love how perfect Se-ro is for him, because if ever a man needed a woman to tell him exactly what he should do, it’s Doo-soo.

Se-ro is already sighing that she misses Doo-soo before her plane is even off the ground, but she’s in for another surprise. Her mother takes a seat right next to her — she’s going on a vacation. She’s not even bothered when Se-ro is annoyed, because she’s going to visit a friend, not her daughter.

The chairman calls for Butler Ahn to help him find a book, but Housekeeper Geum-shim answers instead. He tells her to push the ladder so he can look in a different place, but it’s too heavy, and he gripes that she’s not strong enough to do anything. Offense gives her strength, she pushes him all the way across the room and tells him he’d better straighten up, because everyone is gone and he’s just pitiful.

Hong-do sees a sign in the coffee shop window that they’re hiring a part-timer, and stops to talk to the owner (cameo by Daniel Choi). He hires her on the spot, impressed by her red cheeks, because to him they mean she’s fired up.

Hong-do calls Yi-seok to tell him about her new job, admitting that her dream was always to work in a bakery. The owner even offered to help her get into baking school, and her effusive praise of “President Choi” has Yi-seok growling with jealousy.

He goes looking for Dr. Uhm, but she’s on a date… with Butler Ahn. They go for a walk, both of them visibly nervous, and Butler Ahn hilariously runs for his life when Dr. Uhm stops to pet a fluffy little dog. When she’s disappointed that they won’t be compatible because she loves dogs, he insists he’s not scared, he’s just, uh… allergic. Right. Dr. Uhm complains that her shoes are uncomfortable, transparently hoping Ahn will pick her up again — which he does, and runs off with her. So cute.

Doo-soo gets a package at the station from Se-ro, which is filled with framed selcas that she took of the two of them when he was unconscious in the hospital. That’s hilarious. She’d posed him in silly positions with flowers in his hair, and there’s even a picture of her with a sleeping Yang. Doo-soo’s happy grin is just gorgeous.

Yi-seok picks up Hong-do for a date, and in voiceover she asks him what he thinks love is. “Love is Cha Hong-do.” Awww. She says she thinks love is touching something, like when she touched his face and ears in his office — it’s being together. Yi-seok thanks her for being born and for loving him, and she returns the sentiment. They run down the street, happily screaming their love for each other.

Sometime later, Mom is heading off on another trip, and Dad complains that she’s never home because she’s too busy traveling the world. She invites him to go with her, but he’s too busy with the bicycle business. Mom just strides out like a boss, with Dad calling after her that he’ll meet her in Hong Kong later. Ha, he’s totally whipped.

Doo-soo yells into the phone, frantic to find someone who can tell him where Se-ro is at the moment, since she seems to have gone missing. The person on the other line isn’t helpful, but Yang runs in with a drumroll, and Se-ro steps into the hall and gives Doo-soo a salute. He grabs her in a huge hug and tells her he missed her, and her thrilled reaction is pure Se-ro: “Yay!!”

Yi-seok and Hong-do are comfortably domestic at her home, with her baking and him tending her indoor garden. She asks him how he’d like her to address him, and he grins sheepishly before mouthing hopefully, “O-ppa?” Hong-do giggles and shakes her head, too shy to call him Oppa.

Later they stand on a busy street, and Yi-seok reminds Hong-do to hold her head up, walk proudly, and look people in the eye. He takes her hand and leads her down the road, looking so proud to be with this beautiful, confident woman, that he could burst. They walk together, happy and in love.

tvN Drama "Heart to Heart" Episode 15 Recap

News via
tvN Drama

Yi-seok’s parents are having a terrible fight (Mom is apparently being accused of cheating), and Dad chases Mom out to the shed in the field. She locks herself in while he pounds on the door, but she refuses to open up. He breaks a window with a rock and takes out his lighter, threatening to burn the shed down with her in it.

He flicks the lighter on and accidentally drops it through the window, setting the shed ablaze. Suddenly terrified, he breaks open the door with a shovel and drags his unconscious wife out, too scared to hear little Yi-seok yelling that his brother is also in there. Dad tries to go back in for Il-seok, but it’s too late, as the fire has completely consumed the shed.

The family can only wail in horror as the shed burns down with Il-seok still inside. Six-year-old Young-ji stands watching, with a still-unlit box of matches in her hand.

Back in the present, Yi-seok monitors his grandfather’s blood pressure and reassures him that he won’t be seeing Hong-do behind his back. He’s bought fully into the “do it for her sake” argument, believing that seeing him and his family will only make her guilt worse.

After he leaves, the chairman comments to Butler Ahn that he knows Yi-seok is only pretending to be all right, and that it makes him sad to watch. Butler Ahn returns the money that Chairman Go gave to Hong-do, saying that she’d waited at the gate the day before to give it to him. She’d said she couldn’t accept it, but asks Ahn to reassure the chairman that she’ll keep her promise not to see Yi-seok again.

In his astute way, Butler Ahn points out that even though the chairman tried to make the problem go away, he feels like it’s gotten worse. Not one person feels better now that Hong-do and Yi-seok have broken up (hear hear, and add me to that list). The chairman admits he’s worried about Hong-do, and asks Butler Ahn to find out how she’s doing.

How she’s doing is pretty awful — these days she mostly mopes around the house, eating dry ramyun and wearing the same clothes day and night. She ignores her landlord pounding on the door to show the house and doesn’t answer her phone, either.

Yi-seok at least goes through the motions of going to work and treating patients, but his normal irreverent style is replaced by listless by-the-book advice. He even refuses to talk to Dr. Uhm about any of this, limiting their conversation topics to his patients. She does manage to get him to talk about forgiveness, and how you forgive someone for yourself, not for their sake, but he only says that forgiveness isn’t something for people like him and Hong-do.

Doo-soo brings groceries for Hong-do, half-threatening her to take them inside this time or he’ll break in again. She doesn’t answer, but texts him to take the groceries with him and not to come back. As he leaves, he notices someone dressed in black lurking under the bridge near her place, and gives chase.

Butler Ahn reports to Chairman Go that Hong-do only leaves her house at night and walks around like a sleepwalker. The chairman worries that something might happen to her, and asks Butler Ahn to have someone watch over her until she snaps out of it.

Se-ro comes home from a day of filming to find her mom waiting for her with a cup of tea. Yeah, I’d be suspicious, too. Se-ro asks Mom what she was like before Il-seok died, having only known her when she was sick, but Mom doesn’t really remember. When Se-ro asks if she’s happy now that Yi-seok and Hong-do are broken up, Mom admits that she isn’t, though she thought she would be.

Se-ro says she doesn’t like being home, and asks to go back to the States when her shoot is over. She’d hoped they would be a family… but they aren’t, and she hates it.

Hong-do still hasn’t brought the groceries in when Doo-soo goes back that night, so he calls Yi-seok to talk. He brings a six-pack to Yi-seok’s office, and shows him the photo of the scorched lighter found at the scene of his brother’s death. Yi-seok doesn’t recognize it, but he’s not worried to hear that someone’s been lurking around Hong-do’s place, correctly assuming it’s his grandfather’s doing.

Doo-soo says thoughtfully that if he were Yi-seok, he probably would have chosen breaking up, too. He understands Yi-seok, also being the eldest of an important family and knowing the filial obligations that entails, but says he wouldn’t have been able to keep working in the place where he’d worked with Hong-do. It’s heartbreaking how Yi-seok flinches a little every time Doo-soo says Hong-do’s name.

Doo-soo says without malice that Yi-seok is a selfish person, so he doesn’t understand why he’s letting Hong-do suffer. He asks why he doesn’t just run away with her, and Yi-seok just sadly says that he wishes he could. He gets a designated driver to take him home, and imagines seeing Hong-do in the car window. He caresses her reflection, wondering if she’s happy.

Se-ro intercepts Yi-seok on his way to his room, curious why he was drinking with Doo-soo, only to be told again that she can’t date him. She says she’s trying to stop being interested and invites Yi-seok to watch a movie with her. After, she tells him she’s giving up on being an actress, because it was mostly an excuse to come home and try to be a family.

She tells him she’s going back to school since studying is what she’s good at, and he says he won’t stop her since it’s what she wants. He does ask her to think about studying in Korea, offering her the use of his apartment, since he’d miss her if she left.

Late that night Hong-do gets out of bed, half-dresses, and goes to Yi-seok’s office. She takes out her knitting, using his chair to measure how big she should make the shoulders of a sweater. (As a knitter myself, I know what a labor of love this is, and it hurts my heart to see her working alone in the dark on a gift for Yi-seok.)

Housekeeper Geum-shim leads Yi-seok down to breakfast in the morning, worried that he’s drinking too much and not eating enough. His father comes down but seems to get nervous when he sees Yi-seok, and joins him with a guarded air. Yi-seok surprises him by apologizing for not being sensitive that he lost a son too, realizing now that his dad’s absence was his way of trying to deal with the pain.

When Yi-seok gets to work, he finds Hong-do’s scissors and some snippets of yarn on his desk, that she left behind the night before. He calls Butler Ahn to come see him, and asks if his grandfather has someone following Hong-do. He’s worried that Hong-do may not be doing well, and says that if she’s not, he doesn’t think he’d be able to stand by and do nothing. Butler Ahn admits that Hong-do wanders around at night like a ghost.

It’s worse than they think, because Hong-do is out of food and resorts to licking up bits of uncooked ramyun, and just sucks her last egg raw right out of the shell. Se-ro calls to her from outside but Hong-do ignores her too, even though Se-ro says she came to say goodbye before she goes back to the States.

Detective Yang tries to get Doo-soo to talk, excited about his new girlfriend, but Doo-soo is more interested in studying the picture of the lighter. They notice that there’s a letter engraved on the lighter, that could stand for the name “Go.” Interesting.

When Doo-soo gets a text from Se-ro that she’s waiting for him, he walks away in the middle of Yang’s sentence again, hee. He doesn’t even know yet that he likes Se-ro, and even smiles as he approaches her.

He can’t hide his disappointment when she tells him she’s going back to the U.S. and asks several times if it’s permanent and if she’s ever coming back. She skirts the question, saying people will talk if he shows too much interest. Doo-soo asks her to stay for one cup of coffee, but Se-ro just says she texted him her departure time and it’s up to him if he wants to do anything with the information.

That night when Hong-do wanders outside, the chairman’s tail reports to Butler Ahn. The chairman asks the man to make sure she gets home safely. Yi-seok’s father comes to talk to the chairman, dissolving into his usual blubbering mess, whining that his son is apologizing to him and that he feels useless. You won’t get any argument from me, and the chairman just rolls his eyes at his son’s histrionics.

Chairman Go reminds his son that he needs to keep silent in order to protect his son and wife. I dunno, seems like keeping quiet isn’t protecting much of anyone. Chairman Go does feel bad, but somehow he still believes that knowing Dad is the one who caused Il-seok’s death would somehow burden Mom and Yi-seok more than thinking they’re at fault themselves. Have I mentioned this family is sick?

Hong-do walks to the clinic in a daze, unable to see anything around her, not even that Yi-seok is still there waiting for her. She’s so lost in her own head that she doesn’t even hear him when he talks to her. He cries, asking what she’s doing, and begging her to get mad if she’s mad but not to just ignore him.

He sits and asks if she’s forgotten her promise to live confidently, and pleads with her to come to her senses. Hong-do only wonders out loud if he’ll like the color she’s knitting, and Yi-seok whispers that she knows it’s the color he hates the most.

Yi-seok stays with Hong-do all night and follows her home in the morning, making sure she gets to her house safely. He smiles a bit at how she walks strongly now, without hiding from people, and we see a glimmer of the old arrogant Yi-seok when he notes that she must have a great doctor. But she stops short when she sees some men warming their hands around a barrel fire, looking terrified at the reminder it brings.

Just before she gets to her door, Hong-do whirls around, having finally heard Yi-seok call her name. But he’s not really speaking, and she’s only hearing echoes of his voice from the past. She reminds herself that he’s not there and goes inside, as Yi-seok watches her sadly from a distance.

Inside, Hong-do berates herself loudly for being this way, asking herself how long she plans to act like this after doing so much wrong to so many people. She still blames herself, and reminds herself to remember how her grandmother raised her. Angrily, she rips her knitting needles out of the sweater and unravels it.

Dr. Uhm finds Yi-seok crying on the stairs of the clinic, and he tells her bleakly that Hong-do is very sick. He says she was never scared of fire before, and that she always loved cooking, but that she’ll die if she doesn’t get help. That explains all the raw food she’s eating. Yi-seok breaks down and shamelessly begs Dr. Uhm to save Hong-do.

When Yi-seok gets home he’s summoned by the chairman, who asks him to go to the hot springs with him. Still crying, Yi-seok goes down on his hands and knees in front of his grandfather, begging him to kill him. He gasps that he can’t breathe, and pleads for death over and over as his sister listens outside the door.

Se-ro runs to Doo-soo to beg him for help, knowing something is terribly wrong with Hong-do, and experiences her first moment of disappointment in him when he hesitates. She storms out, but he follows her and agrees to help her bring Hong-do to Yi-seok.

Yi-seok tries to call Hong-do, but after an internal struggle, she turns her phone over and doesn’t answer. Knowing that she’s home, Yi-seok makes a decision, and goes to her place and lets himself in. She still thinks he’s a mirage and fights him, screaming that she doesn’t really see him, and he’s forced to pick her up and set her on the sofa to stop her trying to run away.

Yi-seok hugs Hong-do tightly as she cries, saying over and over that he’s missed her and he was wrong, promising never to leave again. She finally realizes he’s really here and relaxes, and they stay like that, holding each other for a long time.

When Doo-soo and Se-ro arrive at Hong-do’s place, they see Yi-seok’s car, which has Se-ro relieved that her brother will sort everything out. Doo-soo drives Se-ro home, noting that Se-ro and Yi-seok seem closer than most siblings. She says she knows her brother very well, and how he jokes to hide his pain.

She says she knows now how hard it is to forget someone you like, promising to practice it herself, and Doo-soo gives himself away a bit with, “Why would you do that?” By the time they get to her house, Se-ro is asleep, and Doo-soo just adorably settles in to wait until she wakes up. He even turns his phone ringer off so the noise won’t disturb her.

Yi-seok recoils at how nasty Hong-do’s kitchen has gotten, but she just watches him make coffee like she still doesn’t believe he’s real. Ha, he even jokes that if this is how she lives, he’ll have to reconsider getting back with her. Easy to say for someone with a butler and a maid.

Hong-do ignores his shenanigans and asks after the chairman’s health, and why he came. Yi-seok sobers up and says he can’t live without seeing her, and he knows she can’t, either. If the choice is between dying or seeing each other, it only makes sense to be together, right?

Hong-do admits to being confused, since Yi-seok just barged in and is acting like everything will go back to normal. He matter-of-factly explains that they tried breaking up and it didn’t work, so their only option is to get through this together. He notices the half-ripped-out sweater and asks Hong-do to knit it again, reminding her that it’s his veryfavorite color. Awww.

It’s dark out when Se-ro finally wakes up, and Doo-soo is still waiting quietly, which is just so cute. Se-ro gets out and shakes his hand, keeping a distance since she’s about to leave. She thanks him for everything, saying that it was at least a happy one-sided love, and apologizes for bothering him.

When Doo-soo doesn’t immediately let go of her hand, Se-ro teases that she might misunderstand again. She’s a bit disappointed when he lets go, but he tells her that even though he didn’t like her at first, he’s sad that she’s leaving. She cutely warns him not to come to the airport tomorrow or she really will think he likes her — no really, he’d better not come! Haha. When Se-ro goes inside, Doo-soo smiles to himself then wonders why he feels this way.

After a revelation from Detective Yang, Doo-soo goes to talk to Yi-seok again about the photo of the lighter. It’s suspicious that the lighter’s presence at the fire was never investigated, and Doo-soo thinks he can solve the mystery of who actually started the fire if he knows who originally owned the lighter.

He points out the engraved initial on the lighter, and something about it seems to make Yi-seok take notice. He takes the picture inside, where his father is waiting at the breakfast table for his grandfather. Yi-seok asks to see his grandfather’s cane, which is engraved with the same initial, and in the same engraving style, as the initial on the lighter.

Yi-seok angrily asks his grandfather if the lighter was his, and the chairman fails to look innocent as Yi-seok’s father shifts in his seat nervously. The chairman says the lighter was his, and Yi-seok demands to know if Young-ji really started that fire. His grandfather yells at him for daring to accuse him of starting the fire, and the men’s loud voices draw Mom into the room.

She gets there just in time to see her husband stand and tell Yi-seok and the chairman to stop fighting. “It wasn’t Grandfather. It was me. That lighter is mine.” The chairman clutches his chest as Yi-seok’s dad starts to cry, admitting that the fire was his mistake. Yi-seok makes him repeat himself, but Mom suddenly cries from the hallway not to tell him the truth.

Mom falls to her knees screaming, as Dad gasps in horror that she already knew he was responsible. Realizing that his entire family has let an innocent girl shoulder the blame for the death of his brother, Yi-seok can only stand and stare as they all have hysterics around him, though he’s frozen with shock.
