After last episode’s cliffhanger, we’re left with Daesung who has just overheard the bombshell that was Eunjo and her mother’s conversation. Poor Daddy, he quickly retreats from the room to leave. Eunjo notices the door shutting and realises that someone was at the door, so she leaves to go after him, leaving Mummy to talk to herself.
Daddy’s footsteps are rather heavy, you could see that he was affected by what he heard. When Eunjo catches up to him, he just waves her off nicely. But when she continues following him, he relents and admits that despite knowing it all along, it was still difficult when he heard her say it out loud. Daddy is surprised at Eunjo’s shock, apparently Eunjo had underestimated him. Eunjo seemed more sad than shocked really, but Daesung asks her not to tell Mummy about him overhearing their conversation, so that she doesn’t have to worry. (i.e. she doesn’t have to put on another fake dramatic meltdown.) As he walks away, Daesung stumbles a bit, and Eunjo looks very concerned indeed.
Then we see Kihoon and Hyosun in the car, after Hyosun ran away from her Dad and ordered Kihoon to take her home. She’s telling Kihoon her sob stor to win his sympathy, about how she longs for Eunjo’s approval but Eunjo just comes and takes everything from her. *wailwailwail* Kihoon, who looks oddly serious for a change, asks her to stop crying. I think he actually rolled his eyes, because he sounded really sick of her at that point.
He then launches into a tirade against Hyosun, saying that she never worked to protect what she has, how can she whine about losing when she did nothing to earn what she has? Hyosun looks at him with her crying pouty face, but he just goes “What are you looking at me like that for? Are you mad that I’m not taking your side? I’m not yours!” She still cries anyway, but he says he’ll ignore her. (Yeah, that’s exactly what you should do to 5-year-olds when they throw a tantrum in public) Even when she goes up and hugs him, he pushes her away.
Then comes his earnest advice – Eunjo is not her enemy. She needs to do something on her own, and then protect that something, so that no one can take it away from her. He asks her not to depend on him, and begs her to grow up quickly. He looked very conflicted at the end of the tirade, and didn’t care less when Hyosun refused to go back with him. He just abandoned her in the middle of nowhere? Albeit, a very nice looking middle-of-nowhere.
