Why? Because she's asking Bong Sook for a place to stay. Bong Sook is more than happy to have her and get rid of the good-for-nothing roommate. But she also wants to know the gossip? She she leave for Jae-hyuk's company because she and Young-gul fought or because of Jae-hyuk?

Finally, he gives up and undresses in his bedroom. HOO-FRICKIN'-RAY! She gets all embarrassed but continues to stand firm, even curling up on the sofa with a pillow. He watches her, I bet he's impressed by her gumption (part of why he likes her) and incredulous and a bit unnerved and unsure of what to do.

She's crying and I'm falling for his heartfelt words. How did Yoo Ah-in make me completely change my opinion of this character in five minutes? FIVE MINUTES. That's the power of this show and this is why people keep watching although they don't know why. Individual scenes are really powerful and Yoo Ah-in kills it. Shin Se-kyung's big watery eyes kill me. Lee Je-hoon's manly mad face gets me. Yu-ri...well, Yoo Ah-in does enough work for them both.

Young-gul puts his hand on Ga-young's knees and promises that he won't misunderstand her so she shouldn't misunderstand him either. He retreats into his office and a ghost of a smile crosses her lips.

This is the episode where Young-gul and Ga-young's romance could've started. But a few monkey wrenches get thrown in. I'm sure we will have a whole mess of misunderstandings caused by secrets and lack of communication starting next episode. As for this one, I should hate Jae-hyuk. I really should. And I should think Young-gul's jealousy is stupid because he doesn't say anything to Ga-young. Should. But these boys are too cute. An-na is pathetic. Ga-young needs to step up and affect change herself instead of riding the tide.

Michael has called "Young Girl" and their conversation wakes Ga-young who excitedly listens to Young-gul's side. The sketchy designer wonders if Young-gul can be in New York the next Monday. Although Young-gul's calendar is full, he agrees.

We left off with the face off of the male leads. In one corner, Jae-hyuk armed with his poo-poo face. In the other, Young-gul armed with red stilettos?

Since poo poo faces aren't good for fighting, Jae-hyuk resorts to his fists instead, and violently punches Young-gul in the face. Young-gul goes down and scrambles back onto his feet, wincing in pain. They trade words and Young-gul gets in a pretty wicked head butt!

Now we get to find out a bit more about Young-gul. He's at his aunt's house and she's nagging him about never contributing to the household and yet he comes to leech off her. She jabbers on how about he is embarrassing for quitting school and pursuing fashion. That's why his mother left - he should've gone to find her when he was in America. Young-gul is immediately on the defensive.

His aunt is furious. His family imposed on her and it was all she could do to survive, much less take care of someone else's sick kid. And what did Young-gul do? He went off to make money and never came back. If he was worried for his sister, he should've come back earlier. Young-gul, hurt, slaps an envelope of money down and leaves.

Outside, he hears his little sister call "oppa". He turns and sees a vision of his sick sibling calling to him, telling him to make money and come back. Young-gul looks an absolute wreck.

by: RaineAt the ratings are back up at 9.2% for episode 3. I'm not sure if it's cause Love Rain has caused such a negative commotion or what. Perhaps having Yoo Ah-in naked in every episode contributes a point percentage point per ab appearance?This episode was still wild and crazy plot-wise but we've come to expect that and I think I might stop commenting on that...maybe. That kiss was hot and we got to see Yu-ri's acting chops and how they get the foursome back to Korea...sort of.

After his meeting with Michael J. Lauren, Young-gul is floating on clouds and literally runs into An-na. While helping her pick up the garments, he notices that she's been crying. He thanks her for her help, but she is lost in her misery of being cast aside for the unknown Young-gul.

by: RaineLast weeks ratings dropped from 10% for episode 1 to 8.9% for episode 2 and it's really not hard to see why. I think I'm probably one of the only people enjoying myself. Why? It's THAT ridiculous. I'm trying to figure out what's going on and when I can't, I just make fun of it and wait for "Rooftop Prince" on Wednesday!This week was a bit better than last week but it's still setting up background. Yoo Ah-in is carrying the show on his very sexy, often nekkid, shoulders.

Kang Young-gul's request has just been brutally rebuffed by Jung Jae-hyuk who has no money for the likes of Young-gul. So the incensed Young-gul barrels into Jae-hyuk's meeting with Tory Burch, the teach of the New York Fashion School (NSF). He yanks Jae-hyuk up by the collar, embarrassing him in front of his important guests.

After hearing the startling news that she rejected her admission to the New York School of Fashion (NSF), Ga-young runs into Jung-ah, Madame Jo's daughter, who smirks in evil satisfaction. She feigns surprise at their meeting and mentions how she was admitted: she'd been on the waiting list and another student who'd received a full scholarship rejected the admission. Whoever it was, Jung-ah is thankful. But oh, she has to go, a car is waiting for her. Toodles.

After the disheartening news and the infuriating meeting with smug Jung-ah, Ga-young wanders around the City for a bit. Then she callsYoung Girland asks for the president. However, he's not there. (He's busy sailing the high seas.) Dejected, she wanders around and gets chased off a bench by a scary homeless lady and intimidated by a pair of bickering black men.

She's at the end of her rope when she finds a motel for the night. It is then, at the end of a trying day that she is able to put the pieces together: Madame Jo had hidden the mail from her and her daughter, Jung-ah, had smugly wanted to thank the "person" who rejected the admission so she herself could be admitted.
